For the last 18 years, Queen Elizabeth has led the annual tribute to Britain’s fallen soldiers on the U.K.’s Remembrance Sunday, November 12. However, this year will be a little different.

On Wednesday, Buckingham Palace announced that this year she will just be observing with her husband Prince Philip, while her oldest son (and heir to the throne) Prince Charles carries out the deed.

Many are suspecting that the decision is a sign of Charles, 68, slowly transitioning into taking on more of her duties.
