Prince Charles delivers Queen's speech for the first time at the opening of Parliament

Prince William accompanied his father to the event.

Prince Charles played a very important and history-making role at the opening of Parliament on Tuesday. The 73-year-old Prince of Wales delivered the Queen’s speech at the event when Queen Elizabeth II was unable to attend due to episodic mobility problems.

Prince Charles’ wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and their eldest son, Prince William, were on hand to support him while he delivered the Queen’s message to those in attendance. It was only the second time in Queen Elizabeth’s 70-year reign that she herself did not deliver the message.

While Prince Charles has been by his 96-year-old mother’s side during parliament openings in the past, Tuesday was the first time he spoke on her behalf. It also marked the first time Prince William attended a formal event.

During the speech, Queen Elizabeth’s Royal State Crown was displayed between Prince Charles and Prince William on a red velvet cushion. In discussing the administration’s objectives and proposed future legislation, Prince Charles used the phrase “His Majesty’s government” and ended the 11-minute conversation with a message from his mother.

He said, “Your Majesty pray that the blessings of Almighty God be with your counselors.”

“God Save the Queen” was later played as Charles and Camilla left the event in royal cars.

On Monday it was announced that Queen Elizabeth would have to miss the opening of Parliament. A Buckingham Palace statement said: “The Queen continues to suffer mobility problems, and in consultation with her doctors has decided reluctantly that she will not attend the state opening of Parliament tomorrow.” “At Her Majesty’s request, and with the agreement of the relevant authorities, the Prince of Wales will read the Queen’s speech on behalf of the Queen, with the Duke of Cambridge also in attendance,” the statement continued.

While Her Majesty has been noticeably absent from royal affairs in recent months, Prince Charles said on Tuesday he looks forward to his upcoming platinum jubilee in June and the Commonwealth Games in August.
