I didn’t know the second throne was only there because of Phillip! I had seen photos of Charles sitting there for previous parliament openings so I just assumed it was for the consort or heir. Is there a protocol reason Charles used to sit there when Phillip didn’t go but now can’t and has to sit on the side?
Most likely just because before Charles was representing Philip as the senior male, kind of standing in for him. Now he’s just there as himself, he’s not standing in for Philip

I don't think a prostitute is more moral than a wife, but they are doing the same thing.
- Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
A 99 year old World War Two navy veteran whose entire job is to walk two paces behind his wife and make amusingly inappropriate comments in a society that increasingly encourages thin skinned victimhood that is both suffocatingly PC and quick to take offence.
God. I miss him already.
RIP you blessed man.

State Opening of Parliament
Tumblr media
The State Opening of Parliament marks the formal start of the parliamentary year.
The Queen's Speech sets out the government's agenda for the coming session, outlining proposed policies and legislation.
It is the only regular occasion when the three constituent parts of Parliament – the Sovereign, the House of Lords and the House of Commons – meet.
When is State Opening?
State Opening happens on the first day of a new parliamentary session or shortly after a general election.
What happens during State Opening?
State Opening is the main ceremonial event of the parliamentary calendar, attracting large crowds and a significant television and online audience.
It begins with the Queen's procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster, escorted by the Household Cavalry.
The Queen arrives at Sovereign's Entrance and proceeds to the Robing Room.
Wearing the Imperial State Crown and the Robe of State, she leads the Royal Procession through the Royal Gallery, packed with 600 guests, to the chamber of the House of Lords.
The House of Lords official known as Black Rod is sent to summon the Commons.
The doors to the Commons chamber are shut in his or her face:
A practice dating back to the Civil War, symbolising the Commons' independence from the monarchy.
Black Rod strikes the door three times before it is opened.
Members of the House of Commons then follow Black Rod and the Commons Speaker to the Lords chamber, standing at the opposite end to the Throne, known as the Bar of the House, to listen to the speech.
The Queen's Speech
The Queen's Speech is delivered by the Queen from the Throne in the House of Lords.
Although the Queen reads the Speech, it is written by the government.
It contains an outline of its policies and proposed legislation for the new parliamentary session.
After the Queen's Speech
When the Queen leaves, a new parliamentary session starts and Parliament gets back to work.
Members of both Houses debate the content of the speech and agree an ‘Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Gracious Speech.'
Each House continues the debate over the planned legislative programme for several days, looking at different subject areas.
The Queen's Speech is voted on by the Commons, but rarely in the Lords.
History of State Opening
Traditions surrounding State Opening and the delivery of a speech by the monarch can be traced back as far as the 16th century.
The current ceremony dates from the opening of the rebuilt Palace of Westminster in 1852 after the fire of 1834.
