Shock news from the Queen as Charles steps into her place

Remembrance Day People mark Armistice Day

The royals will be joined by Prime Minister Theresa May, other senior politicians, religious leaders and dignitaries from around the Commonwealth.

A special tribute was held in honour of former Forces' Sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn, who celebrated her 100th birthday this year.

Announcing the decision last month, Buckingham Palace said the Queen wished to be by her husband's side on the balcony and had asked the Prince to lay a wreath instead.

Often praised for being rigorous about her royal obligations, the queen has delegated the Remembrance Sunday wreath-laying to Charles.

The Queen stood with the Duke of Edinburgh and Duchess of Cornwall on a Foreign Office balcony to observe the silence and watch the service.

All were dressed in sombre black outfits, adorned with the red poppy.

The change of protocol is seen as one of the Queen's most significant handovers of royal responsibilities to the heir to the throne.

Prince Charles will lead the annual ceremony at the Cenotaph in London and Big Ben will chime at 11:00 GMT.

A wreath will also be laid at the memorial for the Welsh Guards in London.

Charles has laid a wreath before on behalf of the Queen, in 1983 when she was out of the country, and when the Queen was in South Africa in 1999 she laid a wreath at the Cenotaph in Durban.

The Duke of Cambridge, wearing an RAF squadron leader's uniform, and Prince Harry, in the uniform of a captain in the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals, also laid wreaths. It has since grown and now remembers all those who died in war in battles of the past and wars that are still ongoing.

Among the acts performing were singers Mel C, Emeli Sande, Tom Odell, Lesley Garrett and Alfie Boe, alongside hymns, prayers, and readings.

On Saturday, events were held around the United Kingdom to mark the 99th anniversary of Armistice Day with Big Ben chiming for the first time since August.
