There must be a flurry of activity in the households of The Queen, The Prince of Wales and the Cambridges as they prepare for their trip to France and various engagements they're to carry out there. It doesn't surprise me in the least that it is only the Queen and the DoE at the state opening of Parliament this year.

I had assumed the lack of an announcement was the announcement, but the two chairs are out next to the thrones, so I guess Charles and Camilla are going to be there after all.

State Opening of Parliament 2002 - 2014

The Queen and DOE have just left BP in the new state coach.

Prince of Wales and DOC have just arrived in the Irish State Coach.

Camilla looks absolutely stunning!

Prince Philip is in his Royal Marines uniform. I'm not sure I've ever seen him wear something other than a navy uniform for this. Perhaps it's because it's the Royal Marines' 350th anniversary this year.

Yes I found that really odd and he hasn't got his Garter collar on even though it's a collar day. I think he must have some specific reason why but v odd indeed.

He's taking the salute at the Beating Retreat later today, which wouldn't be a collar event, I don't think. I think some of the decorations are stitched on to avoid wardrobe malfunctions, so maybe there's not enough time to switch them from one uniform to another, or to remove the Garter collar and switch the sash.

I was interested to learn that one of the more unusual traditions of the State Opening of Parliament, is the Hostage MP who is held at Buckingham Palace whilst the Queen is at Parliament. He is released upon the safe return to the palace of the Queen. One MP who had performed this duty a few years ago was told by way of a joke that if anything happened to the Queen in the Houses of Parliament for him not to worry as they would make sure they shot him quickly!
I am pleased that Charles and Camilla attended again this year.

instead of calling the coach State Coach Britannia, it's not being formally called The Diamond Jubilee State Coach. I must mean the world to Jim Frecklington that that his hard work in developing this carriage has finally made it to The Queen and is being used officially.

She does look great in white - not many of us do - and I thought her regal meter hit a 10 today. Good for her! It's hard to take a bad picture at this spectacular event! Love the opening of parliament for its dramatic beauty!

OK - I just read about the speech - is the issue of partisans returning from fighting in Syria a big one? I don't want dive completely into the political pool - just was wondering about the background on this (that it merited a mention in the speech).

AdmirerUS..

Regarding the issue of fighters returning to the UK from Syria, MI5 have warned that radicalised youth returning home MAY constitute a major domestic terrorism threat.

The Diamond Jubilee State Coach is a beautiful carriage, is this the first time The Irish State Coach has been used for Prince Charles?
