It has been confirmed that the Queen will attend the Remembrance Sunday ceremony.

On Remembrance Sunday, the Queen will resist physicians’ advice to rest as she pays tribute to the nation’s war dead at the Cenotaph.

Her Majesty, 95, who has undergone hospital tests for an unexplained sickness, will attend the Whitehall service, according to Buckingham Palace.

The news came after a smiling Prince Charles informed a well-wisher that his mother was “all right” yesterday.

Her choice to attend the funeral on Sunday demonstrates how important it is to the monarch to remember the sacrifices made by her generation and others throughout wartime.

According to a royal insider: “It’s written down in her diary.

It would take a brave person to tell her she couldn’t go.”

However, the Palace announced that the Queen would not attend the Church of England’s General Synod on Tuesday, citing “her doctors’ recent advise.”

Officials believe this is the first time in 51 years that the Church’s top governor has skipped her five-yearly General Synod visit.

Prince Edward would instead attend “as planned,” according to Buckingham Palace.

It’s also been reported that the Queen has freed her schedule for the next three weeks.

Perhaps only the responsibility of opening Parliament is more important to her as head of state than Remembrance Sunday.

“My whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be committed to your service,” the Queen, who trained as a mechanic and driver during WWII, said on her 21st birthday.

She will watch Sunday’s festivities – Charles’ 73rd birthday – from the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building in central London, according to Buckingham Palace.

Since 2017, Her Majesty has not joined members of the Royal Family on parade in front of the Cenotaph.

Instead, she has chosen to observe from afar and have Charles place a wreath on her behalf.

Later, Prince William will salute at the Horse Guards Parade march-past of veteran organizations.

The Queen is not expected to attend tomorrow’s annual Festival of Remembrance at London’s Royal Albert Hall, according to the Palace.

She used a walking stick in public for the first time in 17 years last month, after a knee operation in 2004.

And royal watchers have hypothesized that going up and down the steps at the Royal Albert Hall and Church House in Westminster could be problematic. “Brinkwire News Summary.”
