‘As so many of us spend today back in lockdown we remember those who gave so much for our freedom. It’s a chance to talk to our children about why we mark Remembrance Day like my grandad taught me why we wear the poppy. 

‘The pensioners are sad they can’t go out and sell poppies this year as usual, please support them and donate online if you can.’

As the clock struck 11am, Boris Johnson, Prince Charles, Prince William and other member’s of Britain’s elite marked the two-minute silence before laying their wreaths.
