Armistice Day, commemorating the end of fighting in the First World War in 1918, is one of the most important days of commemoration in Great Britain. The royal family was there.
At a memorial service for the British war dead, King Charles III. life-size bronze statues of his parents Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip unveiled at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The monuments are intended to honor the couple’s commitment and dedication to the famous concert building.
A few days before his 75th birthday, Charles appeared emotional as he looked at the replica of his mother, British media reported on Sunday.
Together with his wife Queen Camilla (76), his son and heir to the throne Prince William (41), his sister Princess Anne (73) and other family members, the king watched the concert from a box on Saturday evening. Anne particularly paid tribute to the approximately 65,000 sailors who were killed in the Battle of the Atlantic in World War II. British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak (43) and opposition leader Keir Starmer (61) were also at the “Armistice Day” event with their wives.
Armistice Day, commemorating the end of fighting in the First World War in 1918, is one of the most important days of commemoration in Great Britain. On Sunday, Charles and Sunak wanted to lay wreaths at London’s Cenotaph war memorial.
