Or maybe arrive by car and wear the robes and crown as normal after arrival.

Trivial thoughts I know, but thats how my mind works sometimes.

The official version is that Thursday's state opening will be scaled down solely because of the unforeseen circumstances of a December snap election, implying that the next state opening will return to the usual pomp and ceremony. Personally I doubt it due to the Queen's age.

That's a fascinating question. Wikipedia references an article from the Institute for Government which is an interesting read.
