VE Day Memorial service held in London

HER Majesty The Queen has joined some 1,000 war veterans and their families to mark the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe Day.

Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall, her Majesty laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey in remembrance of the price paid by Britain to achieve victory in the Second World War.

The Archbishop of Canterbury said the veterans had ensured “victory over the greatest darkness of the 20th Century”.

Following the service, which was also attended by the Prime Minister David Cameron, the Red Arrows and World War Two aircraft mounted a fly-past over Horse Guards Parade.

Representatives of the Allied nations and Commonwealth countries that fought alongside Britain also attended.
