Sunday 13th November

The King and the Queen Consort and members of the Royal Family will attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday.

The King will lay a new wreath, the design of which pays tribute to the wreath of His Majesty’s grandfather, King George VI, and Queen Elizabeth II. The wreath’s poppies are mounted on an arrangement of black leaves, as is traditional for the sovereign, and its ribbon bears the King’s racing colours; scarlet, purple and gold. The Royal racing colours were also incorporated into the wreaths of King George V, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen Consort will view the service from the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building. For the first time a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by an equerry from the Royal Household. The Queen Consort’s wreath will bear Her Majesty’s racing colours, inherited from her grandfather, and echoes the wreath of the previous Queen Consort, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

The King and the Queen Consort’s wreaths have been produced by the Poppy Factory, and will be accompanied by handwritten cards bearing Their Majesties’ new cyphers.

The Prince of Wales will lay the wreath previously laid by the former Prince of Wales, featuring the Prince of Wales feathers. The wreath bears a new ribbon in Welsh red.

The service at the Cenotaph will also be attended by the Princess of Wales, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra.

Following the service, the Earl of Wessex will take the salute at the march past of veteran organisations on Horse Guards Parade.
