Remembrance Day: Queen at special Westminster Abbey service

November 11, 2018 4:10 pm

The Queen has attended a remembrance service at Westminster Abbey for those killed and wounded in conflict, as the UK marks 100 years since Armistice Day.

Earlier, millions of people joined in a two-minute silence at 11:00 GMT that marked the end of World War One on the 11th hour of 11 November 1918.

Prince Charles laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen at the Cenotaph in London.

Ten thousand people – including veterans and relatives of WW1 soldiers – marched past the monument.

Services and special events have been taking place across the country and the world.

A beacon was lit at Westminster Abbey and more than 1,000 others will be lit across the UK on Sunday evening.

The lights are intended to symbolise the end of the darkness of war and a return to the lightness of peace.
