The Queen to return to public duties within two months ‘come hell or high water’

The Queen will be leading tributes at the Cenotaph for Remembrance Day "come hell or high water".

That's according to a source who claimed the 94-year-old Monarch "fully intends" to return to public duties in less than two months as November 8 "is a hugely important day for the country and for her personally".

Her Majesty has been on lockdown since March as aides looked to protect her from the coronavirus pandemic.

But a source told the Sun she has promised to return to public duty in less than two months for Remembrance Day as it is "a staple in her calendar."

As the Queen looks to return to normal, she has already announced she'll be back working at Buckingham Palace from October.

And now a source told the paper the Queen will be leading tributes at the Cenograph on November 8, saying: "She’ll be there come hell or high water."

Following the annual royal summer holiday at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the long-standing monarch will return to Windsor by the end of September.

She has plenty of jobs to catch up on, with one of the first on the agenda expected to be a meeting with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"The Queen wants to be leading from the front. Remembrance Sunday is a hugely important day for the country and for her personally," said a source.

"It is vital she is seen at a key event of national unity.

"She fully intends to be there. It is a staple in her calendar."

Along with the Duke of Edinburgh, 99, HRH went from Sandringham to Windsor Castle on March 19, days before the UK went into lockdown.

In the following weeks, insiders reported the extended time together saw the couple become closer than ever before in their 72-year marriage.

Prince Philip apparently gave the monarch the strength to continue in the face of a series of setbacks this year for The Firm, including Megxit.

They also had the opportunity to relax in the 'HMS Bubble' and now want to avoid spending long stints apart from each other after remembering what a "good team" they are, it was claimed.

However, the pandemic has meant the Queen missing Trooping the Colour, as well as other key annual events – though she has continued to be kept up to date with Downing Street, including weekly calls with the PM.

She has also been able to 'break' isolation on a number of occasions, including for granddaughter Princess Beatrice's wedding.

The Queen and duke are expected to head to Sandringham on Monday for a fortnight.
