The Queen looks sombre at emotional Remembrance Sunday service at Westminster Abbey

THE Queen looked sombre as she attended an emotional Remembrance Sunday service at Westminster Abbey in a purple outfit.

The monarch, in purple, attended the service in the Capital to honour those who fought in the First World War, which at 11am on this day 100 years ago ended. The 92-year-old was joined by other royals including pregnant Meghan Markle and grandson Prince Harry, who will welcome their first child in spring, as well as eldest grandson Prince William and wife Kate. Their three children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis did not attend and neither did Prince Philip, who is aged 97.

Earlier in the day, the Queen and the rest of the royals joined millions of people who fell silent to remember those killed and wounded during the conflict.

The nation paid tribute to those who battled in the war and commemorated 10 years since the end of World War 1, which was the deadliest conflict in the history of the human race.

Prince Charles laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen following a two-minute silence at 11am this morning, which marked the end of the war on the eleventh day of the eleventh month a hundred years ago.

Harry and Meghan also attended the Cenotaph, with Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Prime Minister Theresa May was also there and laid a wreath with other politicians such as John Major and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
