The Duchess of Cambridge joined the Princess Royal and the Countess of Wessex along with other members of the royal family for Remembrance Sunday this weekend (14 November).

This year marks 100 years of the Royal British Legion and the royals attended an annual service at the Cenotaph in London.

The Duchess of Cambridge joined Sophie Wessex on the balcony of the Foreign Office, alongside the Duchess of Cornwall and other family members to watch the service below.

Princess Anne stood in uniform with Prince William and Princes Charles at the Cenotaph, and laid a wreath in remembrance.

Each year, the Royal British Legion March Past of 10,000 Veterans takes place on Remembrance Sunday, attended by the Queen and members of the Royal Family. The Queen was sadly unable to attend the service this year, due to a sprained back, but other key royal figures were still able to be present for the important occasion.

Photographs of the event show the Duchess of Cambridge in a black coat and hat with pearl drop earrings on the balcony. The Duchess of Cornwall also opted for a black hat while Sophie Wessex wore a large fascinator style headpiece.

Further photos shared to the Royal Family’s official social media accounts show Prince William saluting veterans during the parade, as well as laying a wreath before the monument.

Ahead of the event, the Duchess of Cambridge met with a 98 year old war veteran to hear some of his memories and discuss why Remembrance was so important.
