Prince Charles was asked by his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, to take over the role historically held by her and the Prince of Wales did not disappoint.

Charles led the Royals, as well the rest of Britain, in honoring those who lost their lives on World War I during the events of Remembrance Sunday.

Several photos of the ceremony were shared by Kensington Palace through their official Twitter page, where fans and followers of the Royal Family were able to enjoy the special day.

Historically, Queen Elizabeth was the one responsible for leading the ceremony, but she has asked Prince Charles to have that honor for the second year in a row.

A FIRST FOR MEGHAN

His sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, along with their wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, were also a part of Remembrance Day and paid their respects at the Cenotaph.

The Duchess of Sussex watched the proceedings at the Cenotaph for the very first time in a separate but official balcony, while Camila Parker Bowles and Middleton watched the ceremony with the Queen by their side.

A MARK IN HISTORY

Surprisingly, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the President of Germany, was also present, making it the first time that a German leader has taken part in the proceedings since the Cenotaph's 1920 inauguration.

Aside from the Royal Family, Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn also paid their respects at the Whitehall memorial and the traditional two minutes of silence were held at 11 a.m.

WILLIAM'S CONCERN

The chiming of Big Ben made itself heard even though the structure has been under renovation since August 2017. This was the second time the clock has rung since the start of the renovations, aside from New Years.

Prince Charles led the ceremony with grace and composure, but it has recently been reported that William would like to see his father spend more time at home with his grandchildren instead of always being at work.
