Victoria nodding off a little bit
I think all parents can relate, or anyone who has been in somewhat boring meetings

Is there some reason why the public are absent? Not one person was standing waiting to see the procession from the palace.

I know the Royal House has managed to add some more decorum (black and white dresscode, the use of carriages, etc.) but the Opening of Parliament is still extremely sober for my eyes.

Anyway, it is better than in Belgium and Luxembourg (no any State Opening at all with the monarch involved) or in Spain (only the first session of the new Parliament) or in Denmark (the monarch is an onlooker and has no active role).
