Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, wore a black coat and hat fitting in tribute as she watched her husband Prince William and Prince Charles lay a wreath on behalf of the Royal at Cenotaph in Whitehall. The Duchess was joined by Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, as the pair stood out from society because of the grave event.
The Queen stood privately on another balcony as she led the country for two minutes of silence to mark the end of World War 1.
The king was only waiting with his wife Susan Rhodes in the Foreign Office building, Commonwealth and Development.
The 94-year-old grandmother watched her son Charles put a wreath on her behalf in Cenotaph. The heir to the throne also has a second in a separate tribute to himself.
Prince William also placed a wreath along with tributes to Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer.
Prince Harry and Prince Andrew, both of which have resigned from royal duties, are also significantly absent.
The Queen̵7;s husband, Prince Philip, 99, also did not attend the event today.
