At the 100th anniversary of the victory of World War I at the Royal Albert Hall on the evening of the 10th, the 92-year-old queen and other members of the royal family attended the ceremony to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers. The queen wore five poppies, which were fixed on her brooch. Why should the Queen wear 5? There is a saying that she wears one for the Navy, the Army, and the Air Force, and two poppies representing civil defense and women. For whatever reason, the Queen’s greetings are certainly not to be missed. At the same time, Kate only wore three poppies inserted on the brooch. She wears poppies on her right chest instead of the traditional left chest to get close to the heart. The reason may be her asymmetrical skirt, so that there is no place on her left to put poppies. Male members of the British royal family, including Prince William and Prince Harry, used a simple poppy flower to decorate their military medals. Although the poppies they wear vary in shape, size, and quantity, the message is the same: the fallen soldiers are not forgotten. On the scene, thousands of spectators stood there, holding photos of family members who participated in the First World War. Theresa May and her husband, Philip, held a photo of her two ancestors - one of whom was the second-class soldier of the East Sari group, Hubert Bharaja Grant, who died in the Battle of Paschandler in 1917. Only 19 years old. It is reported that the day's activities were hosted by the Royal Army Armed Forces Charity Organization, with the aim of "thanks to all those who serve us, sacrifice and change the world."
