Even more so for the veterans I’d say. There’s a saying about no atheists in foxholes.

Its those that were in those foxholes that is the intrinsic purpose for which a remembrance time has come about. No matter what the denomination or the religious tenets that are used when remembering those that have given the ultimate sacrifice, the main point is that the Caretaker to whom they have returned is included.

I must admit that I'd never really had concerns about 'inclusivity' in the RBL Festival of Remembrance - so I guess it's a good topic to raise here, to encourage discussion!
I enjoy this event and look forward to it every year. I wonder if those who feel offended by the religious content have watched the entire event? I am always impressed by the solemnity of the occasion, the respect that is shown to all those who have fought in many wars over the years, and the comfort that those left behind seem to gain from being able to talk about their loved ones. There is a large input from ex-service members from many countries, from their loved ones left behind, and an impressive turnout from the Royal Family. And I, as a fairly non-religious and rarely-church-going 'Presbyterian', do not feel in the least bit offended by a couple of traditional hymns and prayers at the end of the Festival.

Do people on the forum really feel it's time to change this event?

Not me. As a Catholic I wouldn't feel excluded because a CoE clergyman presided over the event. Have we really gotten to the point there needs to be a *disclaimer* before something so no one feels personally slighted or left out?


Everyone toughen up.

If there is to be change, I don't think we'll see it until after Charles takes the throne. Out of the respect for HM, The Queen and her profound dedication to the Church of England, it will remain as is. Most likely to change it while the Queen is still alive would be tantamount to a sacrilege to her.

Just watched the Remembrance Sunday service and the DOE looked so frail leaning on the wall. I just forget that the man in 96.

I love the Festival of Remembrance and believe it is the entire opposite of exclusive, it is inclusive. You cannot truly understand the event, if you see it as divisive in my opinion.

I don’t think it should ever be changed or “modernized”. It’s a solemn occasion to remember not remember “lite”.

I'm pleased about this.

As well as the service at Westminster Abbey in the evening there are also services in Glasgow (Princess Royal attending); Cardiff (Wessexes) and Belfast (not yet announced prob for security reasons).

There is also an events in France (Paris and Mons). Heads of State and Government, inc Pres Trump, are in Paris. No word on who we are sending but Charles now represents HMQ at the wreath laying so I expect either William or Harry to go.

In 2014 they sent Andrew to Belfast so I would expect that he will be sent again:

Charles in London, Anne in Glasgow, Edward in Cardiff only leaves Andrew of the Queen's children.

They could decide to send Charles to France and have William in London of course.

Do you know which heads of state and/or heads of government will attend the celebrations in France besides President Trump ?

I second the question as it seems to me they are listed in the order of succession.

Because so much carrying on is done now and then (here and elsewhere) about the order of precedence. Some evidently think it should be done differently.
