The Queen is set to carry out her first major public royal engagement at Westminster today 11 May since her husband Prince Philip's death last month.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will travel from Windsor Castle to the Palace of Westminster by car.

The 95 year old monarch will be attending the State Opening of Parliament, where she will be joined by her son Prince Charles and Camila.

The Prince of Wales has been by the Queen's side for the last three state openings, including two in 2019 and one in 2017 after the Duke of Edinburgh retired from his royal duties.


The State Opening of Parliament typically begins with the Queen's Speech, which lists the Government's legislative plans.

MPs and members of the House of Lords will be in attendance, but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the event will be significantly reduced to essential people only.

Those participating will wear face masks and get tested for the deadly bug prior to the event.
