William and Kate join Charles and Camilla at this year’s Festival of Remembrance

The Prince of Wales and other members of the Royal Family have arrived at the Royal Albert Hall to commemorate those who lost their lives in conflict.

The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall were accompanied by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the royal box at the annual Festival of Remembrance, along with a number of other members of the royal family.

The Queen was not in attendance herself – this was only the sixth time she has missed the annual event – but she is expected to be present at the memorial ceremony on Memorial Sunday.

William and Kate came together for the event, with the Duke of Cambridge wearing a poppy and his medals while Kate wore a poppy needle on her top.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex were seen arriving together at the annual event at the Royal Albert Hall and pausing briefly to greet those at the entrance to the venue.

Prince Edward wore his poppy next to his own medals, while his wife also wore a poppy needle on the lapel of her coat.

The royal family were all spotted in the royal box at Albert Hall before the festival began as they were about to take their seats.

Prince Charles and Camilla were escorted to the front of the royal box by Prince William and Kate before the festival.

The Royal Marines fanfare team opened the ceremony, followed by members of the Royal British Legion wearing blue and gold standards.

The blue stands for loyalty and loyalty and the gold stands for trial by fire.

The poet Tomos Roberts will give an emotional interpretation of his specially commissioned piece “Alive with Poppies” at the Festival of Remembrance in the Royal Albert Hall.

After the poem ended, the audience raised their bracelets – which glowed red.

Attendees were also seen wiping away tears while a video played of Sallie and David Wright telling the story of their son James, who was killed 10 years ago in Afghanistan.

Sixteen relatives then entered the hall to a standing ovation.

Gregory Porter, Cynthia Erivo, Alfie Boe, Alexandra Burke and Ramin Karimloo will all perform at the Royal British Legion’s annual event.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was also present at the annual Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

He sat in the box on the left of the royal box, while Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer sat in a box on the other side.

Few of the attendees at the annual event wore face covers, but attendees were asked to provide evidence of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test within 48 hours of arrival.

The Royal Albert Hall guidelines state: “Please help us protect everyone by wearing face-covering where possible and respecting other people’s personal space to reduce your risk and the risk to others.”

The service recognizes those who have lost their lives in conflict.

2021 will also mark the 100th anniversary of the first collective national traditions of remembrance being organized by the Royal British Legion.
