I remember that one year it took place at the same Day then Ascot. And then the Queen managed to attend both Events.

This is very odd. I can't believe there isn't more behind this, and from what I've read there are to be 'reduced ceremonial aspects' to the State Opening.

It's very disappointing, Garter Day is always a highlight of the year.

It is odd. I hope there haven't been any threats leading to increased security.

June 19 the Queen will "dress down" -- State Opening; Prince William won't have to "dress up" --Order of Garter service has been cancelled

Reason for cancellation

For June State Opening, it'll be a "dressed down " Queen -- no robes or crown. Last happened after March 1974 snap election.

Ceremonial elements for this year's State Opening being scaled back because of lack of time to rehearse. Trooping the Colour 2 days earlier

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall won't be at the State Opening. Likely to return next year. (along with the carriages).

10 years ago today The Duke of Cambridge became the 1000th Knight of the Garter:

Wow, amazing how much time has passed and how young William looked at the time. He was knighted in the presence of his brother and his love, Catherine.
