Our friends over at Socialite Life have put together a gallery of Prince William, his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and the Queen — among other royals —  paying their respect on Remembrance Day.  

Sunday, November 11 marks Remembrance Day, the equivalent of the U.S. Veterans Day. The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month marks the signing of the Armistice, on November 11, 1918, to signal the end of World War I.

It is tradition for the royals to lead the commemorations in London, followed by a parade of hundreds of veterans. At 11 a.m., the UK fell silent for two minutes of reflection.

Socialite Life wrote: “All of England wears black, the troops young and old show off their medals and uniforms and the royal family all look practically perfect.”

Multiple publications report the royals as appearing somber which is expected as it is a day of paying tribute to those who have lost their lives in the line of duty.
