The Duke lays a wreath at the England vs New Zealand rugby match More

The Duchess of Cambridge, who sported three, visited the Imperial War Museum last week to view moving letters relating to the three brothers of her great-grandmother, Olive, all of whom fought and died in the First World War.

At the Cenotaph, the Duchesses of Cornwall and Cambridge joined Her Majesty on one of the balconies overlooking the service, each clad in a trio of poppies. The day also marked the Armistice that ended the hostilities 100 years ago. British Prime Minister Theresa May also attended, as did the German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.

The Duchess of Sussex watched on with the German president's wife Elke Büdenbender as wreaths were laid at the Cenotaph in London for Remebrance Sunday. Had he been there, the Duke would have stood on the balcony with the Queen and Camilla, with Kate taking position on a separate balcony.

A nation fell silent and the Queen watched on, alone but not alone.

Watching from the Foreign Office has become a tradition for the royal women, as their husbands place wreaths at the Cenotaph below.

The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Kate, Harry and Meghan, and several other members of the Royal Family attended the Festival of Remembrance at Royal Albert Hall, which featured performances from Tom Jones and the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.

It is the first time since the Cenotaph was inaugurated in 1920 that a representative of the country has taken part in the UK's national service of remembrance.

Across Britain, individuals and communities held two minutes of silence at 11am (1100 GMT) to remember the end of the four-year conflict which claimed around 18 million lives.

The day will conclude with a Service of Thanksgiving at Westminster Abbey.

The sombre occasion saw all members of the royal family dress in black, with Kate opting for a military-inspired outfit by Alexander McQueen. For Sunday evening's Centenary of Armistice service, Her Majesty was back in regal purple with her five poppies pinned to her left shoulder on once again.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a green Catherine Walker coat, while Meghan covered her growing baby bump in a navy peplum ensemble.
