A very noticeable absence. On Sunday November 14, several members of the royal family celebrated Remembrance Day at the Cenotaph in London, during a solemn ceremony in the presence of Princes Charles and William, but also Camille Parker Bowles and Kate Middleton, Princess Anne and Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex. However, a distinguished personality was missing: the queen. For health reasons, Elizabeth II, “having hurt her back”, has indeed canceled at the last moment her presence at this official meeting, she who had already canceled several of her trips in recent months, on order of his doctors.

A small disappointment for the queen who had previously confirmed her presence, offering herself a first official exit since her hospitalization last October. But faced with growing concerns in the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson wanted to be reassuring about the state of health of Elizabeth II. “I know that everyone sends their best wishes to Her Majesty, The Queen. I just want to reassure everyone. I saw the Queen last Wednesday in Windsor and she is doing very well”, assured the Prime Minister in the columns of the Daily Mail. “I shouldn’t have to say it, but I wanted to tell you all the same,” he insisted.

An absence which however allowed another member of the royal family to impose himself on the front of the stage, or rather the balcony of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Kate Middleton. Indeed, it is between Camilla Parker Bowles and Sophie of Wessex that the Duchess of Cambridge took place on the balcony, place usually occupied by Elizabeth II. Dressed in her Alexander McQueen coat that she had already worn for this same event in 2018, she thus rose to the height of a future queen consort. Both dignified and solemn, chic and discreet, Kate Middleton has been able to perform her role perfectly and prove, once again to the monarch that she can count on her.
