King Charles III is leading Britain’s annual Remembrance Sunday service for the first time as monarch.

The King, Camilla, the Queen Consort, as well as other royals will attend the service at The Cenotaph (central London).

The King placed a new wreath at Cenotaph. It pays homage to King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II’s wreaths.

The wreath’s poppies are mounted on an arrangement of black leaves, as is traditional, and its ribbon bears the King’s racing colors of scarlet, purple and gold.

Camilla saw the moment from her balcony at the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. For the first time, a wreath was placed on her behalf.

The King and Queen Consort’s wreaths were accompanied by handwritten cards bearing their new cyphers.

A two-minute national silence was observed at 11:01 a.m. local (6 a.m. ET). ET), marked by the tolling of Big Ben – which has now officially returned to use After a five-year restoration.

The service was also attended by William and Kate, Prince and Princess of Wales, Edward, Sophie, the Earless and Countesss of Wessex and Princess Anne.

Sunday’s event also featured a parade by around 10,000 Royal British Legion veterans. These included World War Two veterans and veterans who have served in conflicts.

The annual service is held on the Sunday closest to November 11 – the day World War I ended in 1918.

This event remembers all those who died in conflict.

Charles, Camilla (William), William, and Kate were all present at Saturday’s Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance. It took place at the Royal Albert Hall. During the event, a video tribute to Queen Elizabeth was made. It also marked 40 years since the Falklands War.

Charles, 73, became Britain’s monarch following the death of his mother in September. His coronation has been scheduled for next May to allow time to mourn Elizabeth’s death and to plan the ceremony.
