Queen of the UK Elizabeth is anticipated to attend the annual service of the Remembrance Day at Cenotaph on Sunday after the monarch was advised to temporarily shift her duties away and take a rest following the night in a hospital, BBC said.

The reigning Queen who is 95-year-old was admitted to hospital for “preliminary investigations” and couldn’t take part at the COP26 summit in Glasgow and Saturday’s event to remember the fallen dead in wars.

The Prime Minister will also be in attendance to the Sunday's service joining the royals who will lay a wreath at the war monument in London.

In the previous year, the event was closed to the public as only the exact number of veterans and military personnel were allowed to take part in the ceremony due to the pandemic surge.

This time a large crowd of citizens is expected to be watching as well as hundreds of women and servicemen will be marching and getting in a line up around at Cenotaph.

A two-minute silence will be held nationwide at similar memorandums to commemorate those who lost their lives during wars or past conflicts.

A month ago Elizabeth II was seen using a cane when she stepped out of a royal limousine, it was the first time she was spotted with a walking cane since 2004.
