I think that is indeed the case. In the past, C&C have been seated together to one side, with HM and the DoE on the thrones. Only the last time in 2017 (?) when the Queen was not in full ceremonial robes did Charles sit in the throne formerly occupied by the DoE. Camilla was not present on that occasion.

That's what I was also thinking ,even though its been a few years now its still strange not to see the Duke of Edinburgh present.

Let's face it, Camilla could be queen tomorrow. So it is important to put her in any ceremony, she is the future queen after all.

When the royal dukes were still members of the House of Lords, dudn’t they attend the state opening with the other non-royal peers ?

In that ("non-royal") part of the House of Lords, the gallery, robes are not worn. If he did (again, not to be done up there on the gallery), he would have mismatched his wife, who then would had to follow the royal way of dressing with an evening gown and tiara. So the Duke and his family wore day wear.

Once again, agenda-driven and/or overtly political posts have been removed and will continue to be until members understand that this is not a political forum.

Who are the two women who stood behind Camilla? I feel like I should recognize at least one of them, but I’m having one of those slow-thinking days where I might night recognize myself in the mirror, if you kwim.

I too prefer a cooler season opening because of the magnificent dark blue & red cloaks the household cavalry wear.

Yes they did before the House of Lords Act which removed most of the hereditary peers. Also their wives.

Princess Margaret also attended despite behind the divorced wife of a peer. I'm not sure if she attended prior to becoming the Countess of Snowden in 1961.

Upthread someone asked if other members of the RF attended. Looks as if they do.
I know Lord Snowdon has attended with his son in the past, and I think the Chattos have been too.

Arthur Chatto was a page of honour to his great aunt the Queen from 2009 until 2015

The Duchess of Wellington attended as peeress wearing the Wellington tiara. so it is likely her husband was there too. Does he still have a seat in the House of Lords so that he could attend or what was the reason he did?

Yep, I know It seems he watched the Opening of Parliament with his parents in 2010, perhaps to introduce him to his role of page of honour.

Marquess of Cholmondeley, Lord Great Chamberlain, and MP Reese-Mogg were the best-looking gentleman.
