The Queen watches Armistice Day commemorations alongside Camilla & Kate

The Queen was joined by two future Queen Consorts on the balcony of the Foreign Office on Sunday for the Remembrance Sunday commemorations at the Cenotaph.

Although the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh could not be in attendance for this year’s service, Her Majesty was in good company to remember those who served in conflict as her daughter-in-law and granddaughter-in-law watched events with her.

The Duchess of Cornwall also watched events at the Cenotaph on the balcony with The Queen last year, although this was the Duchess of Cambridge’s first time.

Catherine normally stands alongside the Countess of Wessex, however, with Prince Philip’s absence, she moved to stand alongside the monarch.

Meanwhile, on the ground below, the Prince of Wales led the nation in remembrance as he laid two wreaths at the Cenotaph – one on behalf of The Queen and the other on behalf of himself.

The Duke of Cambridge also laid a wreath at the Cenotaph alongside his brother, the Duke of Sussex, and his uncles – the Duke of York and Earl of Wessex.

The Duchess of Sussex also made her debut appearance at the Armistice Day commemorations on Sunday as she appeared on the Foreign Office balcony alongside the German President’s wife.

Meghan was tasked with accompanying Elke Büdenbender at the ceremony. Mrs Büdenbender’s husband, President Steinmeier, laid a wreath at the Cenotaph after the Prince of Wales.

This was the first time that Germany laid a wreath at the Cenotaph, with the world today marking 100 years since the Armistice was signed.
