  • Kate Middleton joined the Queen and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall on a balcony overlooking the Cenotaph this morning.

  • The royals led a two-minute silence, while Prince Charles, William and Harry all laid wreaths.

The royals paid tribute this Remembrance Sunday, with Kate Middleton and the Queen watching from a balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office building.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Queen Elizabeth were joined by the Duchess of Cornwall, while Meghan Markle, Sophie Wessex and Princess Anne's husband Sir Timothy Laurence all watched from another balcony.

As with their seating at last night's Remembrance Festival, there's a good reason why Meghan Markle didn't join Kate on the main balcony. It's essentially because the balconies are very small, making it too much of a squeeze to fit more than three people on at a time. As both Camilla and Kate are future Queen consorts, they take precedence over Meghan to stand in prime position alongside Her Majesty.

Prince Harry and Prince William, however, were together at the event. The pair stood side by side while the national anthem was sung by all in attendance of the memorial. They then laid wreaths together.

In a recent documentary, filmed on their tour of Africa, Harry was asked by ITV's Tom Bradby about rumours of a rift between him and William, to which he replied: "Part of this role, part of this job, this family, being under the pressure which it's under, inevitably stuff happens. But we are brothers. We will always be brothers."
