Queen Elizabeth and the Duchess of Cambridge attended an event on Saturday to remember British soldiers that have died in conflict. Part of the annual Festival of Remembrance, the event took place in London’s Royal Albert Hall and included a musical tribute.
Both the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge wore black dresses with red poppies pinned to their shoulder in commemoration of the fallen soldiers.
Prince William was unable to accompany his wife due to royal duties at the Wales v. Australia rugby match in Cardiff, Wales. Prince Harry was also absent, watching the England v. Argentina rugby match at Twickenham Stadium.
The Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge were instead joined by Prince Charles, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Andrew. This year’s Festival of Remembrance was different to previous events, as the Queen made the decision to pass her wreath-laying duty onto her son, Prince Charles.
