Remembrance SundayEach year, on the second Sunday of November, members of the Royal Family join current and former members of the services at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Sunday, a time to pay tribute to the dead of the UK and Commonwealth. This year, for the first time since 1999, The Queen will not lay a wreath. She'll watch from the balcony of the Foreign Office with Prince Philip while Prince Charles and other members of state place wreaths at the Cenotaph followed by two minutes' silence at 11am. While thousands of people line the streets leading to Cenotaph, there are usually other events marking Remembrance Sunday including a Ceremony of Remembrance at London's Imperial War Museum, a day of activities at the National Army Museum and a weekend of events at the Royal Air Force Museum.

 

About Cenotaph

Standing solemnly in the middle of Whitehall, visitors could be forgiven for passing the Cenotaph by unnoticed. But every November it becomes the focus of Britain's Remembrance Service (the closest Sunday to 11th November). The service commemorates the British Empire and Commonwealth servicemen who died in the two World Wars. More about Cenotaph
