Britain's Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall honoured troops at The Sun Military Awards.

Their Royal Highnesses arrived at the ceremony - often referred to as The Millies - at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, London last night (10.12.14).

Hosted by Amanda Holden and Philip Schofield, the awards celebrates outstanding contributions in the military, abroad and at home.

Sharing her gratitude to the armed forces, Amanda said: "The Millies is my opportunity to pay respect to the real-life heroes of our armed forces who keep us all safe.

"It is a great honour to present such a prestigious show for ITV1 and highlight the amazing work which our servicemen and women do every single day of the year."

Other attendees also included 'Taken' actor Liam Neeson, Dame Maggie Smith, singers Katherine Jenkins, Alesha Dixon and 'Great British Bake Off' judge Mary Berry.

'Homeland' star Damian Lewis told former soldiers Ricky Fergusson, 29, Ben Parkinson, 30 and Corporal Josh Boggi, 28, how grateful he was.

He said: "You're all legends. What you have done for me, for your country is incredible. You're the legends."

A Night of Heroes: The Sun Military Awards will air on ITV on December 18 at 8.30pm.
