A Festival of Remembrance was held Saturday in London in honor of those who died in past conflicts as well as in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Queen, patron of the Royal British Legion, and other members of the royal family, including the Duke Of York, have attended the Royal British Legion event at the Royal Albert Hall here.
Britain's Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall (2nd L) and Prince Charles (3rd L) attend a service of remembrance held by the War Widows Association of Great Britain at the Cenotaph in Whitehall in central London Nov. 10, 2007.
The event opened with Cpl Will Rigby, of the 4th Battalion the Rifles, carrying in a torch of remembrance and giving the opening reading.
Cpl Rigby, from Rye in East Sussex, was present when his twin brother John was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq.
There was a performance by the Poppy Appeal's musical ambassador, singer Tori White.
The performance ended with a two-minute silence as thousands of poppies fell in memory of those who lost their lives.
Earlier, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall attended a service of remembrance in Whitehall, where they were joined by around 150 war widows.
The war widows took part in a procession at the Cenotaph, in Whitehall, London, and Prince Charles laid a wreath during the event.
Sunday is Armistice Day, marking the end of World War I in 1918, and this year it falls on Remembrance Sunday.
