Prince William and Prince Harry helped lead Britain in commemorating the country's war dead on Sunday.
William, 31, who served as a RAF search and rescue helicopter pilot until September, was watched by wife Kate as he laid a wreath of poppies at a memorial in central London. He followed his brother, army captain Harry, 29, who donned his ceremonial Household Cavalry great coat with wide red collar, in paying tribute on behalf of his father, Prince Charles (who is in India with wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall).
As in previous years, Kate, 31, watched from a balcony above Whitehall, central London, alongside William’s aunt Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Tim Laurence, the husband of Princess Anne. Kate donned a brooch in the shape of a poppy – the traditional symbol worn to honor those who have perished in wars.

A big day for little Prince George.
Lightly jiggled in his father's arms, the 3-month-old looked slightly perplexed at the attention as his parents, Prince William and Kate, greeted clergy at the doors of the baby's special christening service.
Led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, the 35-minute, private ceremony started at 3 p.m. London time (10 a.m. ET) at the Chapel Royal in St. James's Palace.
Shortly after her arrival with Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth spoke with William and Kate, with smiles all around. Kate – in an Alexander McQueen outfit and nude-and-ivory Jane Taylor hat – greeted George's great-grandfather with a kiss on both cheeks and a small curtsy.
As if to underscore the continuity of the monarchy, there, too, at the chapel door were Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

Apart from introducing Prince George to his great-grandfather Prince Philip and discussing the upcoming Christening with the baby's great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth, what have the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge been up to on their vacation at Balmoral Castle?
William took the son of New Zealand Prime Minister John Key with him on a grouse shoot, while Kate chaperoned the politician's daughter on a walk through the woods.
Max Key, 18, didn’t shoot anything, because he didn’t know how to use the guns stored by the royals at the Scottish retreat. Besides, "They're very hard to shoot, the grouse," his father told the New Zealand Herald.

Talk about royal dreams coming true!
Prince William and his brother Prince Harry really made one young lady's day on Sunday after a charity polo match at the Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire, England – and we've all got the pictures to prove it!
Armed with her camera phone, the eager fan approached the pair of princes, who rewarded her with big smiles.
The overjoyed girl reportedly let out a squeal of excitement after she snapped her pic and turned to her pal with a look of amazement, prompting an even bigger smile from a clearly amused Harry.

Queen Elizabeth had some cheery news to start her week: Her husband Prince Philip left the hospital Monday after an 11-day stay.
"He is in good spirits," a royal source says, noting the spring in the step of the Duke of Edinburgh, 92, as he left the clinic with a book under his arm. "He practically ran out of there."
He headed to Windsor Castle, where the Queen, 87, is based for a week of events, beginning with the Order of the Garter ceremony and then several days' horseracing at Royal Ascot.

The Duchess of Cambridge was pretty in pink as she helped fete Queen Elizabeth at her birthday parade in London Saturday.
The expectant royal rode an open-topped carriage and later joined three generations of the royal family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
On Kate's last official engagement before she heads off to prepare for life as a mother, she paired a pale pink coat from Alexander McQueen with an older, favorite headpiece – a Jane Corbett hat trimmed with lace that she had worn at a palace garden party last year.
Kate smiled and waved at the crowds as the carriage she shared with brother-in-law Prince Harry took them along the Mall to Horseguards Parade where the marching and drills took place.

Prince Philip is on the mend.
The 92-year-old royal is doing "much better," his son, Prince Charles, told reporters Friday. Philip, who spent his birthday in the hospital (when his wife, Queen Elizabeth, paid him a visit), was admitted for an exploratory operation on his abdomen, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.
On Friday, his grandsons Prince William and Prince Harry visited in the hospital, following a visit by Charles and Camilla, who had arrived half an hour earlier.
Philip was admitted to the hospital on June 6 and was expected to stay for two weeks.

Earlier in the day, Philip's youngest son, Prince Edward, 49, had been to see him. Asked how his father was, Edward told reporters, "[He's] well, thank you."
Philip, who is said to be "comfortable and in good spirits," underwent an exploratory operation on Friday and spent the weekend being cared for at the London Clinic.

It was business as usual for Queen Elizabeth on Friday.
With her husband Prince Philip, 91, in the hospital for an exploratory operation, the Queen, 87, continued with her planned visit to open the new BBC headquarters in London.
While observers might expect her to be with her husband of 65 years, for the Queen her work comes first.
"Everything comes second to duty, especially self. People don't understand that these days," says Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine. "It is always like that."
