PLANS BY Michael Ramsey, who was Archbishop of Canterbury, to modernise Remembrance Sunday were vetoed by the Queen.

A file shows the Church of England proposed a radically reformed day. It wanted to remove references to war, make it more "youth friendly" and even considered moving it from November.

However, a letter by the Home Secretary said: "As it was felt the Queen's views would be shared by many... the time for a change is not yet opportune."
