“The Queen continues to experience episodic mobility problems, and in consultation with her doctors has reluctantly decided that she will not attend the State Opening of Parliament tomorrow,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement. “At Her Majesty’s request, and with the agreement of the relevant authorities, The Prince of Wales [Prince Charles] will read The Queen’s speech on Her Majesty’s behalf, with The Duke of Cambridge [Prince William] also in attendance.”
