The Queen is set to break one of her most important traditions this November.
Her Majesty won’t be laying her regular wreath at the Remembrance Sunday service later this year.
Breaking a major tradition, it’s believed the royal has asked son Prince Charles to take her place at the Cenotaph in London where the service takes place to remember fallen soldiers in the war.
It’s believed that someone will lay the Queen’s wreath on her behalf as well as the Duke of Edinburgh.

And while Prince William’s grandmother has missed the service during her reign before, this time will be different as the Queen and the Duke will be watching the service from the balcony.
A statement released from officials explained: “The Queen wishes to be alongside the Duke of Edinburgh and he will be in the balcony.”
During her time as the queen, the 91 year old has only missed six Remembrance Day services due to oversea trips and when she was pregnant with sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Countess of Wessex traditionally also watch the service from the balcony, where the Queen plans to be this year alongside her husband.

This isn’t the first time the royal family have broken with tradition in 2017 either as Kate and William have shunned the rules on more than one occasion.
For example, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – who is pregnant with the third royal baby – chose to send Prince George to a mixed school for the first time.
Kate and William are also happy to show public affection towards one another – an action usually frowned upon by royals.
Here’s seven times the Princess Charlotte’s parents took a different approach to royal rules.
