Armistice Day (or Remembrance Day) is observed in the UK, Commonwealth states and elsewhere to remember the members of the armed forces, who have died in the line of duty. Marked by the symbol of the poppy and is observed at the 11th hour on the 11th of November, as two minutes’ silence is held. In brief, today we remember the nation’s war dead.

Prince Harry has laid a wreath at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire for the commemorations. In addition, loads of other people have gathered at war memorials and in schools, offices and other public places across the UK to pause for two minutes to commemorate the moment guns fell silent for peace at the end of World War I, on 11 November 1918.
