Prince Charles delivers Queen’s Speech in House of Lords

Prince Charles delivers The Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament after the 96-year-old Monarch was forced to cancel due to ongoing mobility issues. It is only the third time during her 70-year reign that The Queen has not opened a session of Parliament. The previous two occasions were in 1959 and 1963, when she was pregnant with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, respectively.
