Members of the Belgian and British royal families, as well as other heads of state, have attended a number of events today to mark 100 years since the German invasion of Belgium, which triggered World War One.

They rounded off the evening by attending a Commemoration Event at Saint Symphorien Military Cemetery where they were joined by David Cameron.

The service was hosted by historian and broadcaster Dan Snow and featured a reading from Birdsong actor Eddie Redmayne. David Cameron also delivered a speech, while Prince Harry read a letter from Pte Michael Lennon to his brother.

The four-year conflict that became known as the Great War left some 10 million dead and 20 million injured on the battlefields. Millions more perished under occupation through disease, hunger or deportation.
