Queen Elizabeth II will attend the Remembrance Day ceremony in London this Sunday (14), her first public engagement since being advised to rest after a night in hospital last month.

The world’s oldest monarch was admitted to “preliminary investigations” into an unspecified disease and has since missed events such as COP26 and a festival to remember the country’s war dead this Saturday night (13).

While the queen has appointments online, the palace said she, at age 95, is determined to appear in person at the Cenotaph monument, where members of the royal family join senior government, military and veterans to honor those who lost their lives in conflict.

Held the Sunday closest to November 11 to commemorate the end of World War I, the Queen’s presence at the annual event is one of the defining images of her 69-year reign: head bowed, wearing black and sporting a red poppy.

This time, she will attend Mass from the balcony of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in central London, while her son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, lays a wreath in her name.
