Service at the Cenotaph – Sunday
The Queen has been forced to pull out of attending today’s #RemembranceSunday event at the Cenotaph after spraining her back. It is not related to her recent hospitalisation. Sources say it’s horribly unfortunate timing and she is deeply disappointed not to attend

The extended royal family, without the Queen, will attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph. This year marks 100 years of the Royal British Legion and the poppy becoming the national symbol of remembrance.
The service will begin at 11 a.m. local time.
The BBC will begin coverage at 10:15 a.m. local time. If you are in Great Britain, you can view it online through BBC iPlayer. We do not have a streaming link for international viewers, however, in the past, CNN has covered the Sunday event.
This was a year of some change.
As he has the past few years, The Prince of Wales laid a wreath for the Queen and one for himself and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The Prince was accompanied by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Edward, and Princess Anne.
The Duchess of Cornwall, Duchess of Cambridge, and the Countess of Wessex watched the proceedings from a shared balcony. Camilla wore her four-strand pearl choker with Queen Alexandra’s Diamond clasp and Catherine wore a new silver-tone Crystal Flower Brooch to secure her poppies. See the information below. The Duchess of Cornwall appears to be wearing the 9/12th Lancers Badge (from her father’s service) and The Countess her Rifles Badge. Sophie is the Royal Colonel of the 5th Battalion.
The Duchess’s new silver tone Crystal Flower Brooch features crystal stones in its centre and all profits benefit the work of the Royal British Legion in supporting the Armed Forces community. https://t.co/Kfhboyhv6o pic.twitter.com/28ZpCGoYIX

The gathering of veterans – who numbered 8,000 – honored those who have served.
The proceedings ended with a loud, and very touching, “God Save the Queen”.

Her Majesty will no doubt be watching on from Windsor Castle.
