Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh paid a visit to the Tower of London on October 16, 2014 where they walked amidst the ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ poppy installation. The striking poppy exhibit consisting of over 800,000 ceramic poppies was installed to memorialize the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War. The last of the poppies will be installed on November 11, the anniversary of the Armistice of the war. The poppies will be sold to support veterans’ charities. Photos by Getty Images.
