State Opening of Parliament – Wednesday 8th May
n Wednesday 8th May, The Queen will travel from Buckingham Palace in a State coach to the House of Lords, where she will perform her duty as Head of State and open a new session of Parliament.
As well as being the most colourful event of the Parliamentary year, it is also the most important as it brings together the House of Commons, the House of Lords and The Queen.
So, grab your tiara, camera and your Union Jack flag, and head over to Buckingham Palace to watch the carriage procession make its way through the streets to the Houses of Parliament.
Make sure to get there early to grab a good spot!
