An image of a modern monarchy

These two photos were taken this morning at the State Opening of the UK’s Parliament.

Her Majesty Elizabeth II, Sovereign Lady and Queen by the Grace of God (her Hanoverian lineage notwithstanding), addressed the Lords and members of the House of Commons to give details of the forthcoming year’s legislative programme which will be put before them by her government.

What our old friend King Gyanendra would give for this!
