Elisabetta participates in the opening of the Parliament without Philip and wears the pins of her 18 years. Beside her, Prince Charles ever closer to the throne
The Queen in Parliament for the first time without Philip
Queen Elizabeth attends the first public event since the death of her husband, Prince Philip. It is one of the most institutional ceremonies of the year, the opening ceremony of the Parliament. And for the first time in 120 years, the throne of the Duke of Edinburgh has been removed. But Her Majesty was able to count on Carlo who was always close to her.
The ceremony, already resized due to the Covid emergency, was veiled by a further note of sadness, due to the death a month ago of Philip, Elizabeth's husband for 73 years. The Queen, as usual impeccable and focused on her monarchical duties, sat in solitary confinement, distanced from everyone. And after more than a century, no Prince consort was present at the event. Not far away, but separated from the Sovereign, Carlo and Camilla took their places. Elizabeth presented Boris Johnson's legislative agenda during her speech.
The throne of the Duke of Edinburgh was first removed since 1901, when it was installed for Queen Alexandra, wife of Edward VII. The royal seat, traditionally located at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, is moved to the House of Lords at each opening ceremony. He is currently in the custody of the Lord Grand Chamberlain.
During the procession through the House of Lords, the Prince of Wales, recently beaten by the Sovereign, accompanied Elizabeth holding her hand. In front of them the Crown lying on a pillow, while behind them Camilla followed, wearing a white silk overcoat with beige diamonds and a matching wide-brimmed hat.
The Queen, very elegant, presented herself with a pearl gray overcoat decorated around the neck with yellow flowers embroidered that recalled the fantasy of the silk dress. The ton sur ton hat, adorned with flowers and leaves, is a must. This is the same outfit that Elisabetta wore at Royal Ascot in 2019. Black shoes and bag, white gloves, earrings and pearl necklace as accessories, completed the look, embellished with a particular detail.
