I had a sense of this last year, the ceremony had an elagiac feel to it.. She slipped last year as she walked backward, recovered well but looked “pained”.
I thought, that’s it.

It's the end of an era..

Another sign of a monarchy in transition. To be honest, I think its something the Queen is very proud to do. In a way, she's going to be able to see her first born son doing more and more and in a way, getting a glimpse of the sort of King he will be. It will definitely be a bittersweet moment for both parents.

It’s a major and very significant step for Charles indeed. A very big moment for all of us to witness too.

Yes indeed!

I’m guessing The Queen and Prince Philip will stand alone or with Camilla and Catherine.

You're forgetting that Sophie and Tim also stand on the same balcony as Camilla and Catherine.

There's more than one balcony - the Gloucesters and Tim Lawrence also attend; sometimes Princess Alexandra.

Right, that’s why I’m wondering if The Queen and Prince Philip will share the balcony with Camilla and Catherine? Or stand alone and the other senior royals stand in the other balconies?

I suspect HM and Philip will share the balcony with Camilla and Catherine. Sophie and Tim can go to the other balcony.

Remembrance Day Services: 2003-2016

The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will view Remembrance Sunday from the balcony.

@RoyalReporter
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh will view this year's Remembrance service at the Cenotaph from a balcony, Buckingham Palace says.

UPDATE:

I have noticed that this is being discussed in several threads so have alerted moderators and I think it should be in this thread as it's not an event.

I'm intrigued by this decision, it's not based on the DOE health because HM can do it on her own and Philip can be on the balcony. It is very clearly a passing of the baton, without actually passing it.

That's a big change, not so? Likely for health reasons regarding the Duke?

Makes sense, of course, but I was wondering if there is a more pertinent reason, like Philip's health. Anyone know?
Or have an educated guess?

Does it really matter where on balconies these people all stand? Just wondered if we're just guessing or grasping at straws or there is a real protocol behind it.

To me its just another step in the transition of the monarchy from Elizabeth to her son. I don't think there's any "hidden" meanings behind it.

It is a new protocol that will be defined this year, so yes, we are all speculating at this stage!

Yes, I think it’s down to the smooth transition. The younger royals are simply taking on more roles and duties.

I do expect some announcements of more roles and patronages being passed down at some point too.

All I have read is that Philip wanted to attend (although not participate directly) and would view from a balcony. HMQ decided that she would attend/stand with Philip and therefore asked Charles to lay her wreath (which is on behalf of the Nation). Philips wreath is to be laid by an Equery and Charles will lay his own wreath.

That's all the info I've seen.

I think it's good to start some of these transitions now before anything does happen. I'm sure behind the scenes there's already a bunch that have happened.

I'm going to guess that the Queen and Philip will stand on their own balcony with one of her ladies in waiting. They accompany her pretty much everywhere so it wouldn't surprise me if this is what the situation will be.

I think Camilla, Catherine, Sophie and Tim will remain on another balcony. The Gloucester's tend to stand with other family members on another balcony.

More likely mobility issues w/ her majesty, but it could just be part of the slow handover of duties to P. Charles.
