Coinciding with America's Veteran's Day, England celebrated Remembrance Sunday to commemorate the sacrifices of the armed forces. Prince William and Kate Middleton attended a ceremony at the Cenotaph in London on Sunday (November 11).

While Prince William presented a memorial wreath in his military uniform and overcoat, the Duchess of Cambridge looked on in a black double-breasted coat and large wide-brimmed hat as she sang next to Sophie, the Countess of Wessex.

The Royal British Legion staged the festival, which included the traditional two-minute silence as poppy petals fall from the roof of the Royal Albert Hall, each representing a life lost in war.

Held on the second Sunday in November, this year the day fell exactly on Armistice Day, the date when World War I was brought to an end.
