The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as other members of the royal family, have made a touching change to their social media accounts.

Prince William and Kate have changed the profile pictures on their Instagram and Twitter accounts to show a single red poppy with the number 100, to mark the Royal British Legion’s centenary.

The change is to mark Armistice Day which is on the 11 November, and Remembrance Sunday which is on the 14thNovember.

Clarence House also did a similar tribute, changing their profile picture to a photo of the Prince of Wales, Charles, and Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, which was taken when they helped to launch to RBL’s Poppy Appeal for 2021.

Prince Charles and Camilla met a group of ten collectors at Clarence House, who each represented a decade as the RBL marked its milestone anniversary.

Prince Charles said, “This year, we warmly welcome the return of Poppy Appeal collectors to our communities. My wife and I are immensely proud to launch the Poppy Appeal in this seminal year and we invite the nation to come together and, once again, wear a poppy in support of our Armed Forces community. After all, every poppy counts."

The Royal Family's official accounts also updated their pictures to a picture of The Queen taken during a previous Remembrance Day service. Her Majesty, wearing a black hat and coat with a splay of poppies pinned to a diamond bow brooch, looks visibly emotional.

The Queen intends to be present for the Remembrance Sunday service on 14 November after a recent break from duties said to be because of illness.
