Donald Trump's state visit to United Kingdom in doubt

22 Juin 2017

The Queen delivered the speech in a toned-down ceremony which dispensed with a horse-drawn procession to Parliament and swapped her crown for a blue hat.

In her speech, which sets out the Government's legislative agenda for the next two parliamentary years, Queen Elizabeth II said ministers were committed to working with parliament, the devolved administrations, businesses and others to build the "widest possible consensus on the country's future outside the EU".

"This is a government without a majority, without a mandate, without a serious legislative programme led by a prime minister who's lost her political authority", Corbyn told parliament.

The 91-year-old monarch did announce one such state visit Wednesday.

Prince Philip has been admitted to hospital with an infection hours after attending Royal Ascot with the Queen, Buckingham Palace says.

As MPs debated, a few hundred protesters gathered for a so-called "Day of Rage" outside Parliament, with a few scuffles breaking out.

It did not detail an estimated eight bills that will be required to ease the UK's departure from the EU.

It did not mention a reform of social care funding, which opponents branded a "dementia tax", the scrapping of universal free school lunches or means-testing of the winter fuel payment.

"The visit wasn't mentioned in the Queen's Speech because a date hasn't been fixed yet", the spokesman said.

He added: "An invitation has been extended and accepted".

Downing Street refused to comment, saying only that the invitation, which was given by Mrs May on behalf of the Queen when she met Mr Trump in Washington in January, remained unchanged.

Signalling the importance of Brexit negotiations with the European Union, which will last until the spring of 2019, the Queen will set out the government's programme for two years, rather than one.

Sir Jeffrey's comments came after DUP sources accused the Conservatives of taking the party for granted in the negotiations.

She also tried to be softer period.

The speech is a list of laws that the British government plans to bring forward in the coming year.

"My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, disability or sexual orientation", she said.

The prime minister apologised for failures by local and national government in responding to the tragedy.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has also voiced his support for canceling Trump's trip.

The speech is being delivered with less pageantry than normal a result of the timing of the snap election.
