Queen WILL attend Remembrance Sunday in first public engagement since hospital stay

Queen WILL attend Remembrance Sunday in first public engagement since hospital stay

November 11, 2021

THE Queen WILL attend Remembrance Sunday commemorations – as she returns to official duties after doctors ordered her to take a break.

Her Majesty, 95, has been hoping to lead the Royal Family's tributes at this Sunday's service at the Cenotaph in London.

The monarch was recently advised to step back from official duties by medics after an overnight stay in hospital.

She will miss the Festival of Remembrance on November 13 – but aides said it was her "firm intention" to attend the Remembrance Sunday service the following day.

Sources said she views the occasion as "unmissable" and as one of her "most sacred duties".

And they said it would "take something very serious indeed" for her to have missed the service.

She has missed the event just six times during her reign, either when pregnant or away on tour.

It'll be her first official appearance since she filmed a video for the COP26 eco-summit.


Her Majesty had been due to attend and give her speech in person, but was advised not to fly to Glasgow.

However, she has been seen at Windsor. Earlier this month, she was spotted behind the wheel of her understated green five-door Jaguar, which usually used to ferry her beloved corgis.

Palace chiefs will "carefully examine" her diary to Christmas and into next year after doctors told her to take it easy.

Royal sources say they have been instructed to take a "careful and cautious approach" to Her Majesty's diary in the future.

And it is understood that there will be an "ever greater collaboration" between senior members of the royal family on future engagements.

The Queen returned to Windsor Castle earlier this week after a weekend away at Sandringham to recuperate.


News that she will attend the service this weekend will doubtless come as a great relief to Brits concerned for her health.

Prince Charles today said his mother is "all right" on a visit to South London.

The 72-year-old was greeted by crowds of people as he left a branch of NatWest bank in Brixton after an engagement for the Prince's Trust this morning.

One well-wisher asked him: "Prince Charles, how is your mother?"

He replied: "She's all right, thank you".

Charles and close members of his family – including Camilla, Kate and William – have been busy during the monarch's temporary absence.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore a military-style coat and a Remembrance poppy as she visited the Imperial War Museum yesterday.

The mum-of-three viewed the exhibition Generations: Portraits of Holocaust Survivors – which features two portraits she took last year to mark 75 years since the end of the Holocaust.

Elsewhere, the Cambridges were pictured beaming in blue outfits as they hosted a reception for William's Earthshot Prize at the COP26 summit in Glasgow.
