Countries across Europe are marking the 75th anniversary of the Nazi regime’s surrender as best they can while most of the Old Continent remains under lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In the UK, commemorations started with a military flypast over London shortly after 11:00 CEST.

A nationwide two-minute silence to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice was then held at 12:00 CEST, led by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.
