The Queen, with the rest of the British Royal Family, was one with the country during Memorial Sunday, held at Cenotaph on Whitehall, reports The Daily Mail. Queen Elizabeth II was the first to lay the wreath to commemorate the death of the members of the Armed Forces who passed away as heroes, fighting for the noble cause since World War I. The day went well and the autumn sunshine brought cheer to the rather solemn moment of the event.
