It was nice to see the interactions between HM and Catherine at the Cenotaph yesterday; it seems the two have a good relationship.

The Queen was present this morning during the Ceremony at the Cenotaph on the occasion of Remembrance Day.

A wreath was laid on behalf of The Queen by The Prince of Wales.

A wreath was laid on behalf of The Duke of Edinburgh by Captain James Aubrey.

A wreath was laid by The Prince of Wales.
Wreaths were also laid by The Duke of Cambridge, The Duke of Sussex, The Duke of York, The Earl of Wessex, The Princess Royal and The Duke of Kent.

The Duchess of Cornwall, The Duchess of Cambridge, The Duchess of Sussex, The Countess of Wessex, The Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, Prince Michael of Kent and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence were present during the Ceremony.

The Duke of York afterwards took the salute at the March Past of Ex-Servicemen and Civilian Organisations on Horse Guards Parade, London SW1.
There maybe was something in what Tommy100 said about being a stand in, not sure if that is an exact quote. He was on the balcony, so maybe something in making up the numbers to place a wreath.

Edit: It's amazing considering the Royal Family were all at this event, and The Sussexes are the ones who made the Sunday Telegraph cover.

This post is regarding to the Remembrance Service in 2020. Moderators, please move this post to a new or different thread if necessary.

Roya Nikkhah (Royal correspondent for The Sunday Times) has tweeted and co-written an article with Caroline Wheeler on Remembrance services, which will be scaled back due to COVID-19 restriction.
Roya Nikkhah @RoyaNikkhah
Remembrance will be scaled back because of #coronavirus restrictions, with a much smaller parade at the Cenotaph and a pre-recorded Festival of Remembrance @RoyalAlbertHall with no audience. But the Queen and royal family will be involved

Remembrance services scaled back by coronavirus pandemic

This year’s Remembrance Sunday service in November had been expected to be all the more poignant because it will mark the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the Cenotaph.

However, the coronavirus has forced organisers to scale back the national service of remembrance.

The Queen, the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and other senior royals are expected to attend the Cenotaph in Whitehall on November 8, although plans will be kept under review.

Prince Charles will lead the tribute to the fallen, laying a wreath on the Queen’s behalf, as he has done since 2017.

However, the traditional march, which sees about 10,000 veterans and serving personnel pass the national memorial, will be cut back, with 2,000 service personnel expected to take part.

Relieved to see that the service will go ahead. Wonderful if HM could attend.

It is her most important annual duty in my opinion.

Indeed it is & for the people it is important for her to be present. She is our link to the past. She is metaphorically speaking the mother of the nation.

The Royal Family instagram account has released a video of The Duke of Kent speaking about Commonwealth War Graves Commission, of whom he is president of. For the next few days, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will explain their work on the Royal Family instagram account.
@theroyalfamily Verified
On Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, we pay tribute to the 1.7 million men and women from across the Commonwealth who lost their lives in the two World Wars.
But all year round, it is the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s job to make sure their sacrifice is never forgotten.
The @commonwealthwargraves team looks after cemeteries at 23,000 locations in 153 countries, and over the next ten days, they will be taking over our Instagram Stories to tell you about their work.
Keep an eye on our Stories and Highlights this week to learn about the global efforts of the Commission, and swipe here for a message from The Duke of Kent, who has served as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s President for fifty years.
📸 The Queen lays a wreath at a CWGC memorial shortly after her Coronation.

This year also marks the 75th anniversary of the ending of WWII and the 100th anniversary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey.

That's good to know - I'd assumed that Prince Charles and Prince William would go, but wasn't sure about the Queen.

I love Camilla, but why isn’t she wearing a mask? Why isn’t anyone else?

Most likely because they're maintaining a distance to each other outside.

The duchess's Cubitt great grandparents lost three of their sons in the space of eighteen months in WW1. A unimaginably terrible toll.
