A representative of Bermuda laid a wreath on behalf of the country at a remembrance ceremony in Britain yesterday.

Kimberley Durrant, the UK Representative of the Bermuda Government, took part in the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph in the UK capital.

This was also the first time the King laid a wreath at the Cenotaph as monarch, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Since 2019, representatives of inhabited British Overseas Territories and the three Crown Dependencies have laid their own wreaths in recognition of contributions in both World Wars as well as other conflicts.

The act was performed by the Queen and the British foreign secretary in previous years.

Representatives also laid wreaths on behalf of Anguilla, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, the Falkland Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, the Pitcairn Islands, Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, and the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The Crown Dependencies of Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man were also represented.
