Queen Elizabeth

For the first time in 21 Years, the Queen is skipping this solemn annual duty


Princess Elizabeth became the Queen of England when her father, King George died. Since then she has given her heart and soul to the betterment of her Kingdom.

The Queen has indeed performed her royal duties with due respect and humbleness.

Now, the reports are that she is skipping one of her most notable annual duties. Usually, the 95-year-old reigning monarch solemnly lays down the annual tribute to Great Britain’s fallen soldiers on United Kingdom’s ‘Remembrance Sunday’ ie 12 November.

But this year it is widely being claimed that she will instead observe all the proceedings alongside her family members. She has rather asked her eldest son, Prince Charles to carry out the royal duty on her behalf.

Her Majesty has only missed six opportunities to pay her respects in person. Those are at the Central London war memorial, the Cenotaph, during her 65-year reign. These were because she was away on tour to Ghana in 1961, Brazil in 1968, Kenya in 1983 and South Africa in 1999. Also because she was pregnant with Prince Andrew in 1959 and Prince Edward in 1963.

Some people see this very decision as a sign of the ongoing transition toward Prince Charles taking on more of her public roles. Explaining her decision, a Royal source tells The Royal UK, “She wishes to give more opportunity to her son”.

Some of them are the Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on November 12. The Queen will stand on the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
