Queen Elizabeth II presided over the Remembrance Sunday commemoration at the Cenotaph in Whitehall in London. The Queen, along with members of the royal family and government leaders, laid poppy wreaths at the Cenotaph. A two-minute silence was observed as many paid respects to fallen soldiers during the Remembrance Day service. Also present were the Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Cambridge, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York, the Earl of Essex and Prince Michael of Kent. The Duchess of Cambridge and Countess of Wessex along with Vice-Admiral Sir Timothy Laurence (husband of the Princess Royal), watched the proceedings from a balcony in the Foreign Office.
