Prime Minister Boris Johnson sat next to Prince Andrew at the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.
It comes after Prince Andrew was embroiled in scandal because of his ties with pedophile billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. Prince Andrew has constantly denied that Epstein did anything illegal during their friendship.
Johnson was accompanied by his girlfriend Carrie Symonds to the event and the couple was smilingly portrayed when they arrived together at the Royal Albert Hall before taking place for the duke and duchess of Sussex.
Johnson was jovially seen chatting with the Duke of York who sat next to him in the royal coffin during the evening.
The ceremony is organized by the Royal British Legion and commemorates all those who have lost their lives in conflicts.

It marks 75 years since the remarkable battles of 1944, including Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the cooperation between Commonwealth and Allied forces.
It also celebrates the 100th anniversary of government communication headquarters and pays tribute to RFA Mounts Bay, which this year after Hurricane Dorian supplied supplies and assistance to the Bahamas.
During the ceremony, artists such as James Blunt, Leona Lewis and Jeff Goldblum will perform alongside the Central Band of the Royal Air Force and Band of HM Royal Marines.

Kate Middleton and Prince William were also present, and marked the first time the Sussexes and Cambridges were seen together since Harry and Meghan opened last month about their struggle in an emotional television documentary.
All four of them sat with the queen in the royal coffin for the Saturday night event, but did not sit side by side.
Meghan blinded in Aquazzura & # 39; Deneuve & # 39; bowed pointed toe pumps and Jessica McCormack ruby heart earrings, while Kate opted for pearl earrings – borrowed from the queen – and a Zara headband.

Earlier today, the Prime Minister paid tribute to Memorial Sunday when the three major party leaders were preparing to break free from the election campaign to show their respect tomorrow.
Boris Johnson said that he & # 39; proud & # 39; will be to put his first wreath on the Cenotaph as prime minister, and promised to continue to be the champion for those who serve with so much courage in our army today & # 39 ;.
Worker Jeremy Corbyn used a video message to say that many wait staff, veterans and their families do not get the support they deserve.
And Liberal Democratic leader Jo Swinson said that people need to pause to think and remember how & # 39; fragile & # 39; can be peace.
The trio is joined by Westminster leader Ian Blackford from the SNP and the Nigel Dodds from the DUP to show their respect in the Cenotaph on Sunday morning.
