The summit will now be attended by Prince Charles, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
Another report by The Telegraph, via Page Six, had stated that the royal family has urged to change their working model due to the Queen's health via which, at least one another royal will accompany the Queen at all times during offline events so that if the Queen falls ill, someone can take up her duty immediately. Then Queen has also been taking part in virtual events from the comfort of Windsor Castle.
"However, it remains The Queen's firm intention to be present for the National Service of Remembrance on Remembrance Sunday, on 14th November," the Buckingham Palace statement concluded. We hope that Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II gets well soon.
