The Prince of Wales has led the nation in honouring the country's war dead on Remembrance Sunday, as the Queen observed the service from a balcony.
The Queen asked Charles to lay her wreath at the Cenotaph, in what is believed to be the first time the monarch has broken with tradition and not performed the symbolic duty when at the Whitehall service.
A two-minute silence took place at 11am and wreaths were laid at the foot of the Whitehall memorial by senior royals and political leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh watched the service from a Foreign and Commonwealth Office balcony.
The Cenotaph ceremony is a poignant and significant event in the life of the nation which normally involves the Queen leading the country in remembering those who have died in world wars and other conflicts, so Charles' role in laying the wreath was a significant moment.
Buckingham Palace announced the change last month, which is seen as an example of the subtle shift of head of state duties from the Queen to the heir to the throne.
Earlier this year Philip, 96, retired from his solo public duties, but on occasion has joined the Queen at her official engagements.
