THE Queen and her royal family looked resplendent as they attended the highly-coveted Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance in London on Saturday evening.

Young royal favourites Prince William and Catherine and Prince Harry and Meghan joined the festivities at the Royal Albert Hall to commemorate the Armistice centenary.

Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duke of York, the Duke and Duchess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke and Duchess of Kent and the Prince and Princess Michael of Kent also attended.

The annual festival, organised by the armed forces charity the Royal British Legion, provides an opportunity for Britain to say thank you to those who have served for their country.

It’s the first time Prince Harry and Meghan have been seen together since finishing their Commonwealth tour, where the former American actor announced her highly-anticipated pregnancy in Australia.

It’s also the third Armistice commemoration that Prince Harry — who served in the British Army for 10 years — has attended this week.

Meghan’s growing bump was visible under her long, black Stellar McCartney coat that was tied at the waste with a black ribbon.

She paired this with a simple black clutch and black heels.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a simple black, long-sleeved dress by Roland Mouret which she paired with black heels and clutch.

Both Prince Harry and his brother Prince William — who served in the navy — wore blue suits that were adorned with military medals and appeared to be wearing matching navy and red striped ties.

The Queen looked resplendent in a sparkling black dress, a dark grey shawl and black gloves which she wore with a pearl necklace and a pearl and diamond broach.

Five large red poppies were attached to her dress while her signature black handbag was also in tow.

British Prime Minister Theresa May was also among the audience who watched Sir Tom Jones and Sheridan Smith perform.

British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who won BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2016, and the Kingdom Choir, which performed at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding in May were among other performances.

The Queen with the royal family will attend further Armistice commemorations tomorrow at London’s Cenotaph and Westminster Abbey.
