Queen Elizabeth II leads Britain in paying respects to the war heroes on Remembrance Sunday
Queen Elizabeth II led Great Britain in paying respect to thefallen heroes of World II during Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in central London. King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands also laid a wreath this year upon invitation from the Queen on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Netherlands after World War II. The Duke of Edinburgh, the Duke of Cambridge, and Prince Harry, were also there, as well as members of the leading political parties. This marks Prince Harry’s official transition into a full-time royal.
At 11 in the morning, a two-minute silence was observed. Wreaths were then laid at the foot of the Whitehall memorial, followed by a veterans' march. The Duchess of Cambridge was seen somber and dignified while Prince William was taking part at the event. Queen Maxima of the Netherlands was also there to witness her husband join in the ceremony. Senior politicians, including Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, were also at Cenotaph service. Corbyn, however, got the ire of observers for failing to bow properly after following PM Cameron.
