The Remembrance Day ceremony is held on the second Sunday in November at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London.
Each year, the ceremony is attended by The Queen and other members of the Royal Family in addition to other Remembrance events held in the same week, notably the opening of the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey and the Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.

Through the annual event on Whitehall, the nation pays homage to those who died in two world wars and in many other lesser conflicts from the twentieth century to the present.
The Queen, other members of the Royal Family and leaders of the country's political parties join representatives of the Armed Forces and ex-servicemen and women for the two-minute silence and the last post.
Her Majesty then lays a wreath of poppies at the foot of the Cenotaph, followed by members of the Royal Family, representatives of the political parties and High Commissioners from the Commonwealth.
A short religious service follows. After the reveille and the national anthem, The Queen departs. The war veterans then march past the Cenotaph to pay their respects to the fallen. A member of the Royal Family takes the salute as the war veterans finish their route at Horse Guards.
