    The Queen is expected to stop off at Sandringham for a few weeks before returning to Windsor and return to work at Buckingham Palace in October.

    Sources told The Sun that the monarch “fully intends to be at the Cenotaph” in time for Remembrance Day. They added, “She’ll be there come hell or high water.”

    It is not yet known which members of the royal family will be in attendance, but a palace source added, “The Queen wants to be leading from the front. Remembrance Sunday is a hugely important day for the country and for her personally.”

    It’s not known whether the Queen will have to wear a face mask during the service, but senior royals Prince William and Kate Middleton have already been spotted wearing them during engagements.
