The royal family paid tribute and honored the memory of British army personnel who lost their lives in conflict on Sunday, Nov. 10.

Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry attended the annual commemoration, also known as Remembrance Sunday, in Central London at the Cenotaph war memorial.

The Duchess of Cambridge looked svelte in a black coat, black gloves and a stylish black beret. She donned a poppy pin, which is a symbol to honor those who have died in combat. Prince George's mom styled her luxurious brunette locks in soft waves. She watched from a nearby balcony as her husband participated in the ceremony, and stood with Sophie, Countess of Essex and Sir Tim Laurence, Princess Anne's husband.

Queen Elizabeth II, wearing a black coat and matching hat, lead the service and was joined by her grandsons as well as her husband, Prince Philip.

Prince Harry filled in for his father, Prince Charles, who is in India, and also laid a wreath.

Thousands paused at 11 a.m. to honor the fallen, according to the BBC. The beginning of the moment of silence began when Big Ben struck and ended with the "firing of a round by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery, using a 13-pounder World War One gun."

The service is held at the 11th hour on the Sunday closest to the anniversary of the end of World War I, Nov. 11, 1918.
