The Princess Royal gave a speech paying tribute to those who lost their lives in the Battle of the Atlantic, the longest military campaign of the Second World War, which saw around 65,000 seamen lose their lives.
The Royals then watched a performance from the Band of the Royal Marines and joined the crowd to sing Dear Lord And Father Of Mankind after the remembrance book, which contained the names of British war dead, was brought into the centre of the hall.
This was followed by a performance from 14-year-old opera sensation Malakai Bayoh, who sang the Latin hymn Pie Jesu.
The festival ended with the audience singing God Save The King followed by three cheers.
Charles waved to the crowd who applauded as he left with the other Royals.
