The Queen will attend the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph but miss the General Synod next week, Buckingham Palace has announced.

The 95-year-old monarch was ordered to rest by Royal doctors just over three weeks ago and spent a night in hospital on October 20 undergoing preliminary tests.

She returned to Windsor Castle on Tuesday after a long-planned weekend away at her Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen will attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph on Sunday 14th November.

”As in previous years, Her Majesty will view the service from the balcony of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office building.

“Mindful of her doctors' recent advice, the Queen has decided not to attend the General Synod Service and Opening Session on Tuesday 16th November.

”The Earl of Wessex will attend as planned.“

The Palace said previously it was the Queen's ”firm intention” to attend the annual wreath-laying service in Whitehall, which falls on November 14 this year and honours Britain's war dead.

The monarch, who lived through the Second World War as a teenager, is head of the Armed Forces and attaches great importance to the poignant service and to commemorate the sacrifices made by fallen servicemen and women.

She was already confirmed to be missing the annual Festival of Remembrance at the /Royal Albert Hall this Saturday evening.
