This decision was made by the British government services after a soldier on ceremonial duty in Canada was shot dead last week in a suspected terrorist attack.
At the same time, security services think that Britain may face a terrorism threat because British jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq return to the country.Former head of the Armed Forces, Lord Dannatt, said: “It is a sad sign of the times but discreetly guarding soldiers on ceremonial guard is a far better option that withdrawing them from duty and sight”.
As a result, Queen Elizabeth II, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the British top leaders will take part in a ceremony of Remembrance of the Dead, taking place at Whitehall, a road in the City of Westminster, in central London. This year this ceremony coincides with two important events: the 100th anniversary of the First World War and the end of the participation of the United Kingdom in the war in Afghanistan.
