The world’s oldest and longest-living monarch went to hospital for a “preliminary investigation” of an unspecified ailment, and has since missed events such as the COP26 climate conference and the Nation’s War Memorial on Saturday night.

While the Queen was photographed welcoming dignitaries online, the palace said the 95-year-old was determined to personally appear at the Cenotaph, where members of the royal family join leading members of the government, military and veterans to honor those who lost their lives in conflict.

The queen, at an annual event held this Sunday through November 11 to mark the end of World War I, is one of the defining images of her 69-year reign: her head bowed, a black dress with a red poppy. …

On Sunday, she will watch the service from the balcony of the Foreign Office in central London, while her son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles, lays a wreath on her behalf.

Elizabeth, queen of 15 other kingdoms including Australia, Canada and New Zealand, will make her first appearance at the event since her husband, who has lived for more than seven decades, Prince Philip, died earlier this year.
