Queen's Speech: 2016 v 2017

The Queen has delivered her speech at the State Opening of Parliament. The ceremony was "dressed down" this year because the Household Cavalry did not have time to rehearse so soon after Trooping the Colour.

The last time this happened was in 1974, following a snap election won by Harold Wilson.
