THE Queen led the nation in honouring the fallen yesterday, as the country fell silent to remember its war dead.

In scenes replicated at memorials across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth nations, the monarch laid the first wreath at the Cenotaph to commemorate members of the Armed Forces who died fighting in all conflicts since the First World War.

Other senior Royals, including Second World War veteran the Duke of Edinburgh and current RAF pilot the Duke of Cambridge – with wife Kate watching from a balcony – joined the monarch and politicians, military leaders, veterans and serving personnel.
