The thousands-strong march of current and former armed forces personnel were seen marching past and saluting the Cenotaph in memory of the war dead today.
King Charles paid tribute to Britain’s war dead as he led a moving Remembrance Day service.
The King led a two-minute silence that took place across the UK and laid the first wreath in front of the memorial in London, where a major policing operation remains in place today after more than 120 arrests were made as a pro-Palestinian march was held on Armistice Day.
The Prince of Wales also laid a wreath, as did the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princess Royal, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and other senior politicians.
Among those who participated in the ceremony was Home Secretary Suella Braverman who was seen in public for the first time since Armistice Day was blighted by brutal clashes in central London yesterday.
The Cenotaph, meaning ‘the empty tomb’, was first introduced in 1920 to symbolise the unprecedented losses suffered during the First World War.
It has come to commemorate all members of the Armed Forces who have lost their lives in conflict since 1914.
Its creators said that the absence inside would allow families, friends, comrades and colleagues to fill it with their own memories of those who lost their lives while serving.
