THE PRINCE of Wales will once again lead the na­tion to­mor­row in hon­our­ing the coun­try’s war dead dur­ing the na­tional ser­vice of Re­mem­brance.

The Queen has asked Charles to lay a wreath at the Ceno­taph on her be­half – the sec­ond suc­ces­sive year he will per­form the duty. She will watch the ser­vice from the bal­cony of the For­eign and Com­mon­wealth Of­fice build­ing.

Af­ter­wards 10,000 peo­ple will march past the Ceno­taph.
