However, although she will attend the event, due to be held on Sunday, she will miss some events that will be held a couple of days later. Prince Edward will be attending those events as previously planned.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: "The Queen will attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph on Sunday 14th November. As in previous years, Her Majesty will view the Service from the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building.
