Queen Elizabeth launches 100 years after WW1 British commemorations

The British Queen Elizabeth and prominent members of the royal family attended Saturday a Memorial Party to commemorate all those who lost their lives in a conflict, on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.

The 92-year-old queen accompanied her son and heir to the throne Charles, the grandsons William and Harry and their wives Kate and Meghan at the Royal Albert Hall in central London during an event to pay tribute to all those who died.

The royal family and Prime Minister Theresa May would oversee leading actors, writers, singers, and military bands who lead the tribute at an event organized by the armed forces of the Army, the Royal British Legion.

At the end of the Great War, events are happening all over the world, with leaders such as US President Donald Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and May in France earlier on Saturday.

On Sunday morning the Queen, the royal family and senior members of the political and military establishment at the Cenotaph in Whitehall are accompanied by the German president Frank-Walter Steinmeier to celebrate the centenary of the end of the war.

The government said that Steinmeier would become the first German leader to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph ceremony before attending a service at Westminster Abbey, in what he believed was a historical act of reconciliation.
