Social media reacts to the future king's pledge.
The Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 40th birthday back in January.
Perched atop a golden throne, bedecked in some of the finest clothes in all the kingdom, Prince Charles seemed just a teensy bit out of touch as he pledged that Parliament would help families struggling with rising costs.
The crown regalia used to get its own carriage.
Charles steps up, Johnson causes confusion and a good joke.
The monarch's address during the state opening of parliament is the head of state’s major constitutional duty – but she doesn't write it herself.
The monarch will "reluctantly" not attend the ceremony amid health concerns, Buckingham Palace confirms.
The statement came just two days after the palace announced that the sovereign had tested positive for Covid-19.
"He sort of twinkled at me and then moved on very quickly..."
Those at the top of leading British establishments are not exactly setting a shining example at the moment.
