Queen attends Drumhead Service of Remembrance

The Queen honoured First World War volunteers today, on the 100th anniversary of the assassination which helped spark the conflict.
She was accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London for a Drumhead Service of Remembrance led by the Bishop of London.

The ceremony was held on the centenary of the shooting of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo on June 28 1914. The killing is widely perceived as having set in motion the chain of events that led to the First World war.
After the service, the Queen was presented with Stepping Forward, a tribute to volunteer military reservists and supporting auxiliaries from Greater London from 1908 to 2014
