A royal salute to our heroes

Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall attend the Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance in Royal Albert Hall, London, Saturday.

Her Majesty kept a solemn watch over proceedings from a balcony at Whitehall, alongside the Duchess of Cornwall and Duchess of Cambridge.

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 black-clad queen watched from a balcony in central London on Sunday as her son Prince Charles laid a wreath on her behalf at the foot of the Cenotaph, a memorial honouring fallen servicemen and women.

The sombre crowd stood in near-silence as it reflected on the battles that ended a century ago, and those that have come since.

"Over the past four years, we have told the story of the First World War and the unique generation who served so bravely and made the ultimate sacrifice for their country".
