A somber good morning to you all,
Remembrance Sunday has kicked off at the Cenotaph with the Queen leading the respects paid to the fallen.

At eleven, a two minute silence was observed for the soldiers in WWI, marked by a shot at both ends. The ceremony was also slightly shorter this year, accommodating the aging veterans.

 All the senior members of the British royal family were there, barring Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall who are on a tour of New Zealand, and King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands. We see King Willem-Alexander here behind the Queen and to the left of the Duke of Edinburgh.

We also see Maxima with Kate and the Countess of Wessex on the Foreign Office balcony.

For the service, Kate wore a bespoke McQueen coatdress. She completed the look with an unknown fascinator and a cluster of poppies.
