The King and members of the royal family gathered for the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday 12 November as tributes were paid to the late Queen for the 70 years of service and dedication she gave during her reign.
Charles and the Queen Consort arrived at the Royal Albert Hall in London, for the first annual remembrance service at the venue since the 96-year-old monarch’s death. Other royals attending include the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.
During the course of the evening, tributes were paid to the Queen, who was the Royal British Legion’s patron and the longest serving Commander-in-Chief of the British Armed Forces. The event also commemorated the service and sacrifice of servicemen and women over the years through words, song and storytelling, and marked the 40th anniversary of the Falklands war.
The Queen, who died nine weeks ago at the age of 96, considered Remembrance Sunday, which commemorates the war dead, one of the most significant and important engagements in the royal calendar.
