Kate Middleton ‘Takes Queen’s Place’ at Center of the Balcony During Remembrance Ceremony.


We know the day eventually will come when Prince William steps into the role of King of England. And right by his side will be Kate Middleton.



With the Queen getting up there in age, there’s been a lot of talk about what will come next. Although there’s still a lot that’s unknown to the public about what those plans will look like, we do know one thing for certain:



There’s someone who can fill her shoes. Kate has been stepping up, and the public loves her.
Britain honored Remembrance Day on November 14 by participating in the annual Remembrance Sunday service in central London.



The royal family leads the ceremony, but this year, the Queen had to send her regrets. The Queen, having sprained her back, has decided this morning with great regret that she will not be able to attend today’s Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph.



Her Majesty is disappointed that she will miss the service,” a statement noted.Prince Charles took her place and laid a wreath at the Cenotaph, which the Queen typically does.



The Queen, in her 69 years as monarch, has only been absent from Remembrance Sunday events six times. But this is the only time she’s missed the events because of her health.



Previous years, she was abroad on royal tours, and the other two times she was pregnant. As in previous years, a wreath will be laid on Her Majesty’s behalf by The Prince of Wales,” the statement continued.



His Royal Highness, along with the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Earl and Countess of Wessex, the Princess Royal and Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra will be present at the Cenotaph today as planned.



With the Queen absent, the royal family adjusted.
We know that the royal family follows certain protocols and takes them very seriously. With all those rules to follow, we know nothing is done in the family without full intention.



This includes the order that each royal family member enters a building, where they’re standing in relation to everyone else, and who they are standing with.



According to The Mirror, at the ceremony this year, Kate took the “Queen’s place” at the center of the balcony.



The Duchess of Cambridge took centre stage as she watched the Remembrance Sunday service in London alongside the Duchess of Cornwall and Sophie Wessex today,” the publication reported.



Technically, the Duke of Kent was likely the one standing in for the Queen.
As in previous years, the family took to the balconies of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, above the memorial to Britain’s war dead.



In previous years, Queen Elizabeth has stood on either the right or left balcony, always taking the center spot. This year, the Queen’s cousin, Duke of Kent, was accompanied by another of Her Majesty’s cousins, Princess Alexandra, and the two stood together on one of the balconies.



But it was the second balcony, where Kate was standing, that had everyone talking.
On that second balcony, Kate stood in the center spot with Camilla on one side and Sophie on the other.



The three royal women watched as the ceremony took place down below. Kate always looks beautiful and put together when she’s representing the monarchy, but this was different, according to royal fans.



Duchess of Cambridge looks powerful in this shot!” one fan wrote in the comment section of an Instagram post shared to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s account.



“The second photo is the very epitome of a queen,” another commenter wrote. “Duchess of Cambridge has all the stuff of it.



And the placement of Kate, between Camilla and Sophie, didn’t go unnoticed. “Check out that placement, Duchess in the middle,” another royal fan wrote. “Her strength is radiating.



“The Duchess takes Queen’s place at centre of balcony,” someone else added. We imagine Kate is under tremendous pressure, but she handles it very elegantly, at least in public.
