Plans for a big screen in St James's Park next Saturday for The Queen (and others) opening new Flanders memorial garden have been cancelled.

Martin @CourtierUK · 32m 32 minutes ago
Organisers put it down to “unexpected operational difficulties” - The Queen, Prince Philip & William are due to attend, with Belgian royals.

Royal Central @RoyalCentral · 15m 15 minutes ago
The Queen will be joined by the King of the Belgians and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg next Thursday at the opening of the Flanders memorial.

"Her Majesty the Queen" in this instance refers to Queen Elizabeth II i think. From Belgium, only King Philippe attends, according to various sources.

Hopefully you are joking because there are twice as many Harry photos in that DM article than photos of the Queen :)

Once again, Prince William attends a major royal event while his father has other commitments. When it happens that often, it cannot be mere coincidence.

It seems that William is one of the point people for the WWI remembrance events with this and the trip to Belgium earlier. The Field of Flanders was a Guards event so not only is William a member of the Blues and Royal regiment. He is also colonel of the Irish Guards.
