After a bout of poor health, the Queen is back to work and will be at the Remembrance Day service at the Cenotaph this Sunday. Fans of Her Majesty online have hailed her work ethic, calling her an “incredible” leader and an “absolute legend.”

  • The Queen will attend the upcoming Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in central London, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.
  • Prince Charles will lay a wreath on her behalf.
  • In other royal news, why does the Queen wear five poppies on Remembrance Day?

Buckingham Palace has said the Queen will be attending the Remembrance Sunday service from the balcony of a Whitehall building.

Prince Charles will lay a wreath on her behalf as has been custom since 2017.

However, palace officials said she had been mindful of her doctors' recent advice, deciding not to attend the Church of England's General Synod at Westminster Abbey next week.

Her Majesty spent a night in hospital in October for medical checks, after canceling an official visit to Northern Ireland.

It was her first hospital stay in eight years but since then she has seemingly recovered and started to undertake a handful of public duties, including holding a Privy Council meeting with government ministers and recording a video message for COP26.

Earlier this week, while visiting Brixton in South London, Prince Charles was asked about the Queen’s health by concerned citizens.

He was shown to reply with, "She's alright, thank you."

Responding to the news that Her Majesty is recovering and preparing to attend the service, fans online have been praising the Queen’s resilience.

One fan called her “an absolute legend” whereas another referred to her as a “woman of greatness.”

On Tuesday, November 9, the Queen returned to Windsor Castle following a long-planned weekend away at her Sandringham home in Norfolk ahead of her planned Remembrance Day service.

Attending Remembrance Sunday at Whitehall is an important day in the Queen’s calendar as she remains at the heart of the National Service of Remembrance, an event she has rarely missed in almost seventy years.
