Queen and Royal Family Attend Sunday Service

The Queen shed a tear for British war heroes at a Remembrance Sunday ceremony while Britain was silent.

Kate Middleton joined Her Majesty on the cenotaph's balcony in central London, where she attended the traditional wreath-laying service.

Prince Charles laid a wreath of poppies on behalf of his 93-year-old mother as thousands of people gathered in Whitehall for the Emotion Ceremony.

Meghan Markle arrived at the event with her husband Harry while both men were showing unity against Prince William and Kate.

Political figures such as Jeremy Corbyn, Labor Party member, Priti Patel, Minister of the Interior, and Jacob Rees Mogg, Leader of the House of Commons, are also present.

The Prime Minister, who laid a wreath with Corbyn, was seen leaving Downing Street today with his partner, Carrie Symonds.

Hundreds of members of the armed forces are also present alongside ministers, religious leaders and representatives of Commonwealth nations.

The queen, dressed in black, watched from the balcony her son and heir, Prince Charles, lay a wreath of scarlet poppies on the memorial to the cenotaph in central London.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Opposition Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn and other politicians have suspended their campaign for the December 12 election in Britain to attend the ceremony with a cold morning sunny.

A military fanfare played as politicians, religious leaders and Commonwealth diplomats from former British colonies laid wreaths on the Portland stone monument bearing the words "glorious dead". The ceremony takes place each year on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of World War I ends on November 11, 1918.

Former soldier Kate Kilpatrick was a new recruit when her battalion was deployed in the chaos of East Timor following a referendum on independence two decades ago.

The international force led by Australia was tasked with restoring order after a month of violent clashes that drove 300,000 people out of the territory. "We saw the broken hearts of the Timorese people," Kilpatrick, who is 41, told APA on Sunday.

"But I was too young to fully understand how much the conflict would affect everyone involved." The memories of the peacekeeping operation were ravaged during the recent trip to Dili for the 20th anniversary. of the mission.

"I remember the worried faces of the refugees as they returned by boat," she said. "I was wondering if their loved ones stayed in the crowd were in the crowd, were they okay." Ms. Kilpatrick also learned more about the emerging nation's struggle and the hard work of fellow soldiers during the 1999 and 2000 military operation. "The impact of what we did there more that I did not do it at the age of 21, "she said.

"I said," Wow, look how we helped these people. "That's the retired sergeant's passion for Remembrance Day, which many people forget to watch because of their hectic lives.

"It's about honoring past sacrifices and those made to this day," she said.

"The war affects many people, service personnel, their families and other people." "It does not hurt anyone to stop for a minute to think about it," she said.

The RSL is calling on Australians to "do not forget" in order to take a break from one minute to 11 am on Monday, November 11th.

Reflect on the service and sacrifice of current and past military and military personnel, and the families who support them.

"Everyone has a busy life these days, the pace is very fast," said RSL Queensland President Tony Ferris.

"But we would not be so lucky if it were not for those who served and who are currently serving."
