Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance
By Alexandrina Kentska | 12 November 2018

Last night The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge joined other members of the Royal Family at the Royal British Legion's annual Festival of Remembrance, presented by Huw Edwards.

The Festival commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts. It is a way for the nation to say thank you to those you served in wars and sacrificed their lives.

Everyone attending has a different image of a soldier who died in the First World War on their seats, in honour of the centenary since the War ended.

The Festival is hosted by The British Legion, which is a British charity providing financial, social and emotional support to members and veterans of the British Armed Forces, their families and dependants.

Sir Tom Jones, Sheridan Smith, Sir Bryn Terfel, Tom Fletcher and Danny Jones, Sheku Kanneh-Mason and the Kingdom Choir performed alongside the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and the Band of HM Royal Marines.

One of the most spectacular parts of the event is the release of thousands of poppy petals from the roof of the hall. Poppies are a symbol of remembrance of those who fought and helped in the war, mostly used in the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

The event is held on the eve of Armistice Day / Remembrance Sunday, which pays tribute to those who contributed to the First World War. This year marks a century since the end of the War. We will see the Royal Family attend two events to Mark Armistice Day today.

I feel flattered that Her Royal Majesty had chosen to be with a scarf that I and my friend gave for her birthday.:)
