Memorial will only be remembered after the 12th
6th November 2014

Tower of London poppy instillation will be removed on November 12.

Calls have been made to keep a poppy installation marking the centenary of the First World War at the Tower of London.

But Historic Royal Palaces, which look after the site, have today confirmed the ceramic flowers will be removed as planned from November 12.

The instillation, designed by artist Paul Cummins, marks 100 years since the beginning of the First World War.

An online petition was launched to keep the field of ceramic poppies beyond Armistice Day. All of the poppies have been sold and the Royal British Legion has said it hopes to raise more than £15m from the sale.

Royal Family mark the run up to Remembrance Day Prince Harry was among members of the Royal Family taking part in events across London in the run up to Remembrance Day.

He paid his respects to the fallen at the Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey. More than 100,000 wooden crosses have been placed in the field by friends and family of servicemen and women who died serving their country.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh along with the Duke of Cambridge also opened a memorial garden in central London created from soil of First World War battle fields.
