Boris Johnson said he will be "proud" to lay his first wreath at the Cenotaph as PM, and vowed to continue to "champion those who serve today with such bravery in our military".

Former prime ministers were also there.

Senior members of the royal family were present alongside military leaders, faith community leaders and representatives from Commonwealth nations.


At 12pmCET, two minutes of silence were observed nationwide.

It was the first time representatives of inhabited British Overseas Territories and the three Crown Dependencies laid their own wreaths in recognition of contributions in both World Wars as well as other conflicts.

In a decade-long tradition, London black cabs were on hand on Sunday to provide free transport to participating veterans from the capital's main train stations to Whitehall as a mark of thanks for their service.
