A two-minute silence has been observed across the nation to honour those who have lost their lives in conflict.
The country fell silent at 11am, marking 102 years since the first two-minute silence was observed on Armistice Day, November 11 1919.
It marked the end of the four-year conflict in 1918 where an agreement between Germany and the Allies was made “on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.
The Duchess of Cornwall was at the 93rd Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, which has been held in the grounds of the abbey since November 1928.
The Field of Remembrance fell silent at 11am, with Camilla and hundreds of veterans from past conflicts standing motionless as the chimes of Big Ben rang out.
The two-minute silence was also marked by Cop26 president Alok Sharma at the United Nations climate conference in Glasgow.
Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, UN secretary general Antonio Guterres and others also stood in silence at the UK pavilion at Cop26 to mark the moment.
