The traditional November remembrance ceremony, in which Britain honors its war dead, will mark a step up in duties for Prince Charles, heir to the throne, this year as Queen Elizabeth II takes a back seat to be beside her elderly husband.

The Queen has chosen not to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph memorial in London this year, for the first time in her 65-year reign, according to The Times newspaper.

She has missed the ceremony before, six times, but only due to travel commitments and pregnancies.

God save our gracious Queen.
Long live our noble Queen
God save the Queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Queen

repeat…..

Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Queen
