The monarch didn't miss the chance to honor those who died in battle by watching the service, which took place at The Cenotaph, in London, from the balcony of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office building.

The 93-year-old watched in silence as her son, Prince Charles, laid a wreath on her behalf, but she wasn't alone on the balcony as she was accompanied by Kate and Camilla Parker-Bowles.

MAKING HER MAJESTY PROUD

The Queen used to lay the wreath but, in the last few years, the Prince of Wales has been granted such honor. His father, Prince Philip, did not attend the service for the second year in a row.

QUEEN ELIZABETH'S POPPIES

As usual, the ceremony was held on the Sunday closest to November 11, the famous day that marked the end of World War I, all the back in 1918.

It is a tradition to wear a poppy in November to honor those who lost their lives in conflict, but Her Majesty made sure to make the public appearance while wearing a total of five poppies.

Queen Elizabeth has been spotted wearing the fiver flowers in previous years and, while there is no official confirmation regarding the reason behind the number of flowers, it is believed that they have a special meaning.

It has been reported that the monarch wears the five poppies as a way to represent each service in the war, such as the Army, the RAF, the Navy, the Civil Defence and women.
