Shock news from the Queen as Charles steps into her place

Wild poppies grow on the verge of a Flanders field near Tyne Cot Military Cemetery

She watched from the balcony of the foreign office along with other members of the Royal family.

The march was diverted and wreath laying at the County Tyrone town's cenotaph was postponed after the area was sealed off.

The nation paid silent respect to those killed in the country's wars in a Remembrance Sunday service led by the Prince of Wales.

A special tribute was held in honour of former Forces' Sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn, who celebrated her 100th birthday this year.

The royals will be joined by Prime Minister Theresa May, other senior politicians, religious leaders and dignitaries from around the Commonwealth.

Announcing the decision last month, Buckingham Palace said the Queen wished to be by her husband's side on the balcony and had asked the Prince to lay a wreath instead.

The service was guarded by armed police and the Met confirmed it would be using facial recognition software to track crowds gathered to watch.

Queen Elizabeth II during the annual Remembrance Sunday memorial on November 12, 2017 in London, England.

The Festival of Remembrance began in 1927 and was originally meant to honour those who died in World War One.

The change is seen as part of the subtle shift of head of state duties from the Queen to her heir. The queen has missed the ceremony only six times in her 65-year reign and handing over her role to Charles is a visible sign to her subjects that she is reducing her official duties.

The Duke of Cambridge, wearing an RAF squadron leader's uniform, and Prince Harry, in the uniform of a captain in the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals, also laid wreaths.

The monarch was joined at the Royal Albert Hall in London by thousands of veterans for the 90th anniversary of the event, organised by the Royal British Legion, of which she is patron.
