The service will see somewhat of a return to normalcy with participating veterans, military and onlookers reverting to near pre-pandemic numbers.

Among those attending the wreath laying at the war memorial in central London will be Prime Minister Boris Johnson and several members of the Royal Family.

Mr Johnson said the event was a moment to “come together to remember those who sacrificed everything in service of our country.”

He said: “It’s a sacred ceremony that has endured for more than a century because we know the unpayable debt we owe those brave servicemen and women.

“We know that for our tomorrow they gave their today.

“And we know that here at home and around the world, thousands of men and women in uniform still stand ready to defend our unity and our way of life, our values, and at a cost few among us would be willing to pay.”

The Queen “reluctantly accepted” medical advice from her doctors on October 20 after cancelling a scheduled trip to Northern Ireland.

However, Her Majesty remained determined to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday service.
