    The Cenotaph Remembrance Sunday is commemorating the UK fallen heroes of war. The annual ceremony was attended by the royal family members as well as UK Prime Minister Johnson and opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn.

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had an emotional moment as she was seen wiping a tear from her face during the annual Cenotaph Remembrance Sunday ceremony earlier this morning.

    The monarch wearing sombre clothes adorned with a red poppy on her lapel was watching the solemn procession from a balcony accompanied by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

    Prince Charles performed the traditional wreath-laying ceremony at the Cenotaph war memorial on behalf of his royal mother, followed by the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex.
