At the beginning of the solemn ceremony, the Queen and members of the Royal Family watched 750 Armed Forces personnel form a square around the memorial, which was followed by a 2-minute silence, after which members of the royal family, including the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge, Duke of Sussex, Princess Royal, Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, and Duke of Kent laid wreaths on the Cenotaph memorial. The Prince of Wales laid a wreath on behalf of the Queen, for the third year in a row. The Queen was joined by the Duchesses of Cornwall, Cambridge, Sussex, and Gloucester, Sir Tim, the Countess of Wessex, the Duke of Gloucester, and Prince Michael of Kent, as they observed the ceremony from the Balcony of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office. Following the ceremony, thousands of veterans and servicemen and women paraded down Whitehall past the Guards memorial.
