During Friday’s show (November 12), Naga quizzed the royal editor on the details surrounding the day.

Naga said: “I know so many people will be delighted to know that the Queen is actually able to do what she intended to do.

“Because this is a memorial she never misses.”

Roya responded:  “That’s absolutely right. And for the Queen to honour those who have fallen – and those who are alive – is one of the most important dates in her calendar.”

Naga later went on to discuss the Queen’s involvement on the day.

Alongside a video of the monarch laying a wreath in the past, the host said: “I imagine that may be part of what she is demanded to do, we are seeing her laying a wreath here…

“If she needs assistance will the protocols will be followed?”

“Well, she no longer lays a wreath,” Roya corrected the host.

“The Prince of Wales has been laying a wreath on her behalf for several years. She will watch from the balcony, and Prince Charles will lay a wreath on her behalf.”

Naga added: “Well, thank you very much for clearing that up.”

The Queen stopped laying the wreath herself in 2017.

Since then, the monarch has watched from the balcony as Prince Charles takes on the duty.
