Saturday, 13th November 2021 

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, accompanied by Members of the Royal Family, will attend the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. 

The Festival honours the Armed Forces community for their service and sacrifice in defending our freedoms and way of life and commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. This year’s event marks the centenary of the Royal British Legion and reflects on the different ways the charity has supported the Armed Forces community. The Festival will also commemorate 100 years of the poppy as the symbol of remembrance. 

The 30th anniversary of Operation Granby, the largest deployment of UK Forces since the Second World War, will be remembered, and the programme will pay tribute to currently serving members of the Armed Forces who were deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Pitting. 

The Royal Party will be received by Mr Ian McCulloch, President of the Royal Albert Hall and Lieutenant General James Bashall, President of the Royal British Legion.

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
