Prince Charles leads UK’s Remembrance Day commemorations

Britain falls silent in tribute to war dead

Prince Charles and Camilla have led Remembrance Day commemorations in the UK on Wednesday.

The country fell silent at 11am - the hour when the guns stopped firing on November 11, in 1918 - marking the end of the First World War after four years of fighting.

A special service was held at London's Westminster Abbey to mark the centenary of the burial of the Unknown Warrior.

The ceremony was attended by the Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
