The Queen is unwell and was unable to attend. The Prince of Wales placed a wreath on the top step of the Cenotaph on her behalf.
None of the news organisations offered the ceremony with a commentary that I could share with you.
If you are in the UK, you can watch the commemoration with a full commentary on the BBC’s iPlayer service. The transmission is available for 11 months from today.
About Remembrance Sunday
Remembrance Sunday in the UK falls on the closest Sunday to Armistice day which is the date when World War I hostilities ceased on 11th November 1918.
Ceremonies are held in many cities, towns and villages of the United Kingdom and are normally attended by civic representatives, ex-service men and women, many of whom are members of the Royal British Legion.
