Missed the names of the other two pages of honour. Believe one to have the title Viscount.

I enjoyed watching this event. Very good and fresh to see Charles & Camilla attend and I hope it won't be their last attendance.

The coverage was very good and Hugh Edwards did a good job making sure the panel stopped talking at the right moments!
They discussed the fact that the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were attending for the first time together and the idea came up that the British Monarchy was a kind of evolutionary institution that slowly changes and evolves....that in terms of looking towards the day when Charles becomes king, by having him attend events like this sort of gets everyone used to the idea that one day there will be a new monarch.....that such a change is a slow paced, transition.

It was noted that the Queen's throne is slightly higher than the Duke of Edinboroughs and that the Prince of Wales' State Chair was slightly higher than the Duchess of Cornwalls.

Very true, the Monarchy is changing and the new faces of the old institution is coming into focus. It's just expected.

It's not about making room in the diary, he's allowed to go but you'll notice the year he last attended and remember what's happened in between. After last year and the balcony appearance I believe this appearance is very much a 'Charles and Camilla are accepted as my heirs' show.

I think it's now very possible that he and Camilla will be regulars now at the State Opening, as they should be.

Is there a way to watch past State Opening of Parliaments online from 1952 and onward online? And read The King/Queen Speech from before 1952?

YouTube is your best bet for watching the openings, and according to this website List of Queen's Speeches - UK Parliament you need to contact them for speeches prior to 1994.

After the horribleness of the 90s and assault on the cost of the monarchy, the "other royals" quit attending the Opening of Parliament. It brought down the cost of the event, apparently. Public opinion was not in favor of the whole family trotting out for the event as had happened in the past.

And if you think about it, the Queen is reading what Parliament has written for her, rather than what she might choose to say, right? Much less what Charles might chose to say. Not really Charles' cup of tea, when you think about it.
