Queen STEPS DOWN and Prince Charles takes over in Remembrance Sunday service shock Latest News

THE Queen has pulled out of a Royal duty and installed Prince Charles to take over.

Her Majesty has stepped down from a major duty at the Remembrance Sunday service and asked Prince Charles to take the reigns. 

The Princes of Wales will instead be the Royal who lays a wreath at the Cenotaph – on behalf of the Queen – on Memorial Sunday, November 12. 

An equerry will also lay a wreath on behalf of the Prince Philip, while the Royal couple watch from a balcony.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said: “The Queen wishes to be alongside the Duke of Edinburgh and he will be on the balcony.”

TRANSITION: Royal watchers believe the move is part of a plan to install Charles as King

This is the first time in recent history that the Monarch has not laid a wreath on this day and the news has prompted speculation of a transition to Charles becoming King.

The Queen reportedly made the decision herself to hand over the duties to her son, and will watch the event unfold from the balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The 91-year-old missed the Christmas Day service because of a cold and Prince Philip, 96, has only joined the Queen on several engagements since retiring in the summer.

Daily Star Online reported earlier in the year how a Royal source believes the Queen is planning to step aside for Charles to become King Regent.

This news comes after Kate Middleton showed off her baby bump for the first time yesterday since announcing she was pregnant.
