The Queen steps back from Remembrance events as she hands down duties to other royals

It’s also the first time the service has been held since the official retirement of Duke of Edinburgh earlier this year.

Both the Queen and Prince Philip will still attend but this year they will watch the service from a balcony of the Foreign Office.

The Queen’s aides stress that her primary reason for asking Prince Charles to lay a wreath is so that she can be alongside her husband.

The Queen has only missed the event at the Cenotaph when she was on tour or when she was pregnant with two of her children, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

After the decision by the Duke of Cambridge to give up his job an as air ambulance pilot in East Anglia – the duties traditionally carried out by the Queen are slowly being passed to the younger generation of Royals.
