Buckingham Palace has released a historical press release a short time ago stating that for the first time in 40 years, Her Majesty would not be attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting.

Every two years since 1973 around 53 heads of Commonwealth nations meet and discuss pressing issues. The last meeting was held in 2011 in Perth, Australia. This year’s meeting will be in Sri Lanka and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales is expected to attend in Her Majesty’s place.
