The Queen planted her own Cross of Remembrance and observed two minutes of silence after prayers.
She spoke to veterans, active duty service members, and supporters at the Poppy Factory at the ceremonial event.
The Field of Remembrance is organized by the Poppy Factory and has been held at Westminster Abbey since 1928.
Members of the public and former servicemen and women plant crosses and symbols with personal messages to remember those who died serving their country.
The Queen is a longtime supporter of the Poppy Factory, which helps veterans transition to civilian employment.
This year, the organization has launched new services to help more members of the Armed Forces community.
In 2021, Camilla visited the Poppy Factory to open its new visitor center.
The appearance of the wife of King Charles III at the moving ceremony demonstrated her commitment to keeping alive the memory of those who gave their lives for the United Kingdom.
This year, there are over 300 plots of commemorative crosses, including plots associated with The Rifles, The Royal Lancers, The Grenadier Guards, The Royal Army Chaplain’s Department and HMS Astute. pic.twitter.com/q4cIl8ldi2
