The State Opening of Parliament is a formal occasion which marks the beginning of a parliamentary session or after a general election. It is an elaborate ceremony which showcases British History, culture and politics during which The Queen wears the Parliament Robe of State and the Imperial State crown with all accompanying regalia. For over 500 years the Opening of Parliament has symbolized the unity of the Sovereign, the House of Lords & the House of Commons.
HM Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip have had an astonishing life together and have dedicated their lives to the duty of monarchy. The couple first met at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth in 1939 when the Queen was just 13- years-old, and began exchanging letters before eventually becoming formally engaged in 1947, following the Queen’s 21st birthday. The royal pair married later in the same year and in November this year will celebrate their Platinum Wedding Anniversary. The Monarch was crowned just five years after their wedding following the death of her father King George VI, who died aged only 56, and although the transition changed their lives forever, the couple have always approached their royal duties with a sense of humor and affection for each other that, over the decades, is testament to their enduring love.
