Remembrance (opens in new tab) Sunday is observed every year on the closest Sunday to Armistice Day, November 11, the anniversary of the end of WWI. This year's event marks an important milestone—the 100th anniversary since the first ever two-minute silence was observed on November 11, 1919.

William (opens in new tab) and Harry marched for Remembrance Sunday at The Cenotaph (opens in new tab), a war memorial on Whitehall in London. The memorial was original erected as a temporary structure for a peace parade celebrating the end of World War I. The public's response to the memorial prompted the British government to replace it with a permanent structure in 1920.

The reunion follows months of speculation of a rift between the brothers, which Harry addressed (opens in new tab) during an interview for the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

"We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and as I know he’ll always be there for me," Harry explained. "We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly. The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers it’s just as I said, you have good days, you have bad days."
