On November 10, The Queen, Prince Philip, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, The Countess of Wessex, Vice Admiral Timothy Laurence, the Duke of Kent, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Princess Alexandra attended a service at the Cenotaph in London.

Also present were Britain’s past and present Prime Ministers; David Cameron, Gordon Brown, Tony Blair and John Major. The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband were also present.

During the ceremony, The Queen and other members of the Royal Family laid wreaths – this is the 55th time The Queen has done so, making her attend the most Cenotaphs in history. The service was fairly short and one of the hymns sung was “O God Our Help In Ages Past”. After the Cenotaph, a Royal British Legion Parade took place at Whitehall.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall were not present, because they were touring India and Sri Lanka. The Duke of York was also absent as he was laying wreaths with soldiers in Afghanistan.
