It was definitely the grandest of Parliamentary occasions when the Queen arrived at the Palace of Westminster earlier this week.

The general public love the state opening of Parliament for the ceremonial elements: the colours of the Household Cavalry, the beautifully decorated horse-drawn carriage, the fanfare and above all the buzzing atmosphere.

Emily was there with the cheering crowds. In this week's On the Town she shares her excitement with Yang Li.
