Senior members of the royal family gathered at the Cenotaph in London to pay tribute to Britain's war dead. As part of the ceremony, Prince Charles laid a wreath on the Queen's behalf, while his mother looked on from the balcony of the nearby Foreign and Commonwealth Office building, a gesture that both confirms her easing back from public life and confirms his role as the heir to the throne. Also in attendance were the Sussexes and Cambridges as well as Prime Minister Theresa May and German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier, who also laid a poppy wreath, as a “historic act of reconciliation,” to mark the 100th anniversary of World War I. Read on to see the best photos documenting the day.
