The Queen will not attend the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London

Buckingham Palace has confirmed that the Queen will not attend today’s memorial service due to a sprained back.

In a statement, the palace’s press office said Her Majesty was “disappointed” at missing the annual event held at the Cenotaph in London – and deeply regretted she was absent.

It would have been Her Majesty’s first public outing after doctors advised them to rest after medical examinations at the hospital.

As in previous years, Prince Charles lays a wreath in the name of the Queen.

Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen, who sprained her back, decided this morning with great regret that she would not be able to attend the memorial service at the cenotaph today.

“Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service.

This year’s BrumWish, the appeal launched in November, resulted in more than 3,300 Christmas gifts being purchased for 1,800 homeless children in the city.

We have secured hundreds of gifts for babies and toddlers, but we missed the target for children six and over.

It all goes through an Amazon wish list – which means you can personally purchase a gift that will be delivered before December 25th.

This year’s campaign is now over. Thank you everyone for your support and contributions.

“As in previous years, the Prince of Wales will lay a wreath on Her Majesty’s behalf.

“His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice-Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned. “
