The Queen has spent almost two weeks resting after her health scare - but will she be attending Remembrance Day events?

Her Majesty was urged by doctors to rest and only undertake 'desk based duties' following tests in hospital.

Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday mark two of the most important dates in the Queen's calendar - honouring the country's war dead.

In the latest statement from Buckingham Palace, the Queen reportedly has the "firm intention" of attending the National Service of Remembrance.

Providing the Queen remains in good health, it means Her Majesty will join other members of the royal family to lay special wreaths at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London, on November 14. 

The sad news is Queen Elizabeth II is unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance which takes place on Saturday, November 13.

It is something the Queen "regrets", according to palace officials, as Her Majesty continues to follow doctor's orders.

What's the difference between the National Service of Remembrance and the Festival of Remembrance? 

The National Service of Remembrance has been held annually at The Cenotaph in Whitehall on Remembrance Sunday since the 1920's.

It remembers the lives and sacrifices of British and Commonwealth soldiers, sailors, airmen and women together with members of the emergency services and civilians.

Adorned with the British Legion's red poppies, the Queen will pay tribute alongside members of the cabinet, opposition party leaders, former Prime Ministers, the Mayor of London and other representatives. 

There will be wreaths laid by other representatives of the armed forces, fishing fleets and merchant air and navy as well as faith communities and high commissioners of Commonwealth countries.

It is held on the second Sunday in November - the Sunday nearest to 11 November, Armistice Day.

Once the Big Ben clock strikes at 11 am, a single shot salute is fired from First World War-era guns on Horse Guards Parade and everyone pauses for two minutes' silence. 

Other features of the celebration include marches, a short religious service led by the Bishop of London and music played by The Bands of the Household Division.

Here's an example of what happens on Remembrance Sunday

The Festival of Remembrance is held every year by the Royal British Legion at the Royal Albert Hall.

It is a commemorative event dedicated to all those that have served and sacrificed from Britain and the Commonwealth. 

2021 is a special year as it marks 100 years of Remembrance in the UK.

The festival pays tribute to all those who have fought wars, disasters and pandemics for Britain.

It features speeches and moving music from a live orchestra.

Statement from Buckingham Palace

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “Following on from their recent advice that the Queen should rest for a few days, Her Majesty’s doctors have advised that she should continue to rest for at least the next two weeks.

“The doctors have advised that Her Majesty can continue to undertake light, desk-based duties during this time, including some virtual audiences, but not to undertake any official visits.

“Her Majesty regrets that this means she will be unable to attend the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday, November 13.

“However, it remains The Queen’s firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on November 14.”
