She was flanked on the balcony by The Duchess of Cornwall and The Duchess of Cambridge, both wearing brooches of significance. The Duchess of Cornwall wore the badge of the 9/12th Lancers, a piece that belonged to Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother and is selected by Camilla because her late father was a member of the 12th Lancers. The Duchess of Cambridge's brooch is the Codebreakers poppy brooch from the Royal British Legion, honoring those that worked in signal intelligence; her grandmother and great-aunt worked at the Bletchley Park code-breaking facility during World War II. She also wore the Bahrain Pearl Drop Earrings on loan from The Queen.

On another balcony, The Countess of Wessex wore her Rifles Badge (she is the Royal Colonel of the 5th Battalion) with a poppy brooch, while simple poppies graced both The Duchess of Sussex and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence.

And down on the ground, The Prince of Wales led the rest of the family in laying their wreaths at the base of the Cenotaph.
