After two minutes of silence, Queen Elizabeth II laid the first wreath at London's Cenotaph memorial, which honors the country's war dead. She was followed by Princes Philip, Charles, William, Andrew, Edward, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, the Mirror reports.

Kate's coat, according to the Daily Mail, was by Diane Von Furstenburg. She adorned it with two poppy pins, a symbol of Remembrance Day.

Prince Harry was not there because he is taking part in military training in the United States. According to the palace, he attended his Army Air Corps squadron's Remembrance Day ceremony in Arizona.
