Royal Festival of Remembrance 2023

The British Royal Family joined the King and Queen to attend the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London on the evening of November 11th, on the eve of the annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, Princess Royal and Sir Tim Laurence, Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, Duke and Duchess of Gloucester and Duke of Kent joined the King and Queen for the  Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

The Royal British Legion hosts the annual Festival of Remembrance on 11 November to commemorate all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.

This year, we pay tribute to the two million National Servicemen who served in the post-war years up until 1963. Hundreds lost their lives, particularly during the Korean War, and we mark 70 years since the end of the fighting. We also acknowledge the unique contribution of the Windrush Generation, 75 years after the arrival of HMT Empire Windrush, which is symbolic for the settlers from the Caribbean who helped rebuild Britain. We honour too those who served in the Battle of the Atlantic 80 years ago, the longest campaign of the Second World War.

Ahead of the Festival of Remembrance, King Charles III and Queen Camilla unveiled the statues of Queen Elizabeth II (wearing the Vladimir Tiara and the Cambridge Emerald Parure) and the Duke of Edinburgh on their arrival at the Royal Albert Hall.
