I like Sophie's hat. Looks like a wonderful crisp morning. Very moving tribute.

When the Duke of Edinburgh stumbled my heart nearly stopped. Thankfully he recovered himself and gave his salute.

I always wonder why the Queen wears 5 poppies. Is it in remembrance of specific people or just to make a nice brooch effect.

This is the first year I have truly paid attention to the Remembrance Day Services.

The engagement of the people of Britain in these services puts my countrymen to shame. Well done!

That's Lady Susan Hussey, Baroness Hussey of North Bradley.
She is the Woman of the Bedchamber of the Queen and one of Prince William's godmothers.

Loved Catherine's and Sophie's outfits and hats! Camilla's hat looked like road-kill!
How handsome the gents looked in uniform, especially Prince William in RAF dress.
Glad Prince Phillip is OK, maybe someone should give him a cane?

Not just the UK, but the entire Commonwealth recognizes either Remembrance Sunday or Remembrance Day. We had our Annual Remembrance Day two minutes of silence and National Service, along w/the local services up here too. Sometimes we have a member of the Royal Family who will come over to attend and other times it's part of a Canadian tour. I think the last time a Royal took part when it wasn't a tour was the Princess Royal, but Charles and Camilla attended a couple of years ago when they were doing their tour of Canada that year.

I also noticed in the pictures that Sophie is once again wearing a Canadian Poppy this year. Wonder why? Not that I'm complaining as I think it's great, but just wondering. :)

William's wreath had the message

"For Jo, Lex and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country".

In Australia and New Zealand Charles and Camilla paid their respects at ceremonies - in Australia the day before Remembrance Day and in New Zealand on the day itself.

This is a day that has sort of grown down here because our main commemorations are in April on 25th April - ANZAC Day - the anniversary of the joint invasion of Turkey in 1915, along with British, Indian and French forces.

As a kid ANZAC Day was always the day and Remembrance Day didn't even rate a mention - one is a public holiday and the other isn't. My school always does an ANZAC Day ceremony but only does something for Remembrance Day when it falls on a day when we have a chapel service or on a weekend, in which case again it is the focus of the chapel service - linking service and sacrifice to Christ's service and sacrifice.
