Just like a year ago, it was a royal full house at this important event, with Queen Elizabeth II joined by all four of her children and various members of their families, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and other politicians paused campaigning for Britain's December 12 election to join the ceremony on a cold, sunny morning.

The dukes of of Cambridge and Sussex also laid wreaths while their wives looked on, as did the Duke of York.

The pair were joined in laying wreaths by Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson, SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford, the DUP's Westminster leader Nigel Dodds and newly elected Speaker of the House of Commons Sir Lindsay Hoyle.

Five former prime ministers - Sir John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron and Theresa May - as well as Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, were also present to pay their respects.

Elsewhere, silences were observed across the nation to mark Remembrance Sunday as towns and cities carried out their own commemoration.

Buglers of the Royal Marines will sound the Last Post before wreaths are laid at the Cenotaph by members of the royal family, politicians, foreign representatives and senior armed forces personnel. The Queen watched from a nearby balcony overlooking the memorial, which had been unveiled by her grandfather, George V, when in 1919 he decreed the first two-minutes' silence to be observed at 11am to mark the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice.

A representative of Bermuda laid a wreath on behalf of the country at a remembrance ceremony in Britain for the first time today.

The Prime Minister and Labour leader were among thousands of people attending the wreath-laying service at Whitehall in central London.

Veterans attend a Remembrance Day service in Edinburgh.

Following the ceremony, up to 10,000 veterans and servicemen and women marched past the Cenotaph to honour the fallen.
