Queen leads royals in poignant Festival of Remembrance to pay tribute to our war heroes

THE QUEEN led members of the Royal Family in a thank you to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country at the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance this evening.

Her Majesty arrived at the Royal Albert Hall alongside senior royals for the concert to honour the UK’s war dead. Wearing a black dress and a remembrance poppy brooch, the Queen, 92, looked solemn as she took her seat in the royal box ahead of performances by Tom Jones and Sheridan Smith. Prince Philip, who retired from his royal duties last year, is not in attendance.

Her Majesty was joined in the royal box by Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Tonight’s event is organised by the Royal British Legion as part of London’s annual festival of remembrance.

The concert serves as a thank you to those who gave their lives in service for Britain and the Commonwealth.

This year’s event, on the eve of Armistice Day, takes on a special significance as it marks 100 years since the end of World War 1.

A host of other royals attended, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also in attendance after Prince Harry travelled into central London from his remembrance duties at Twickenham earlier today.
