In the UK you are not required to wear a mask outdoors, if you can maintain social distancing.

Dickie Arbiter has tweeted out with a picture of the Court Circular that the Queen commemorated the Centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey on 4th November.

I haven't seen pictures of the Queen, but Dickie Arbiter has posted a painting and picture of the Remembrance service in 1920.

Is it only Charles and Camilla attending the Festival of Remembrance this evening?

From the BBC One website, I think it's only The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall who will be attending the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, schedule to be broadcast at 9:10pm. However, I am unsure whether the Festival of Remembrance will be live or pre-recorded.

It's pre-recorded, apparently. Not much has been said about what's included, but presumably performances by solo singers were OK.

Oh, I didn’t realise this was going ahead. I find v moving especially at the end when they do the silence and poppies fall down on the service people. Must say not many people wearing poppies when Ive been out n about. But then not many poppy sellers either which is probably due to social distancing etc.

There aren't any (or many at least) public poppy sellers this year. You can order them by post in batches from the RBL and sell them to your friends/colleagues etc but obviously it's much more difficult than picking them up outside shops. And people aren't going out and about as much in general.

The Queen led other members of the RF at todays service at the Cenotaph, HM watched from a balcony as the Prince of Wales laid a wreath after two minutes silence.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ns-online.html

(I know its DM but they have lots of pics)

The event observed social distancing and far less people were able to attend. HM stood on a balcony with a lady in waiting and watched as the Prince of Wales laid a wreath on her behalf, an equerry laid one for Philip, Charles placed his own, then William, Edward and Anne and the Duke of Kent.

Camilla and Kate watched from one balcony standing apart and Tim and Sophie from another.

We always seem to get good weather for the Remembrance Day Ceremony.

The Service at Whitehall is presided over by the Bishop of London,Dame Sarah Mullally.

Is the social distancing the reason they used nos masks today. But then when HM layed the wreath at Westminster Abbey there was also a distance to the other people who where there.

I suspect it was because they were all 2meters apart and outside where masks are not required by UK law.

HM was inside Westminster Abbey when she laid her wreath and masks are required indoors.

I wonder if this is the first time in a long long while so many members of the RF have been together and all seen one another, if so how special it must have been for HM as well.

Because she was inside and everyone at the Cenotaph is outside. The person leading the service/prayers is the only allowed to not wear a mask in a church.

It was a very different commemoration today but still a very well done event.

Nice to see the Duke of Kent looking quite spry as well.

I know it's necessary but it's sad to see the queen in a mask.

In some of the photographs she was wearing a mask. Looking at the video, I notice that the handfull of attendees are all socially distancing.
