The Week... Parliament is back with the King's Speech

Two of Westminster's best-connected journalists, Sky News' Sam Coates and Politico's Jack Blanchard, guide us through their predictions of how British politics will play out over the next seven days.

On this episode, they look ahead to the King's Speech - the first since Charles became monarch and Rishi Sunak became prime minister. They share some expert intel from our royal commentator Alistair Bruce, the man who leads the sovereign procession and sets the pace for the King.

The King's speech means that parliament is back after a break. What are MPs going to be focusing their attention on?

Plus, the COVID inquiry continues after a dramatic week, with testimony from Sir Mark Sedwill, the former chief whip, Lord Lister, who was Boris Johnson's aide, and Priti Patel, the former home secretary.
