Her Majesty , Queen Elizabeth II arrives at the House's of Parliament wearing a different crown to the one she will wear for the opening
This one is called the George IV Diadem ...it is just beautiful
For the opening the Queen will wear the very heavy almost impossible to wear Imperial State Crown .
Which the Queen finds very uncomfortable
The Robe of State that the Queen wears weighs a whopping 15 lb's
Her Majesty wore her Angela Kelly dress that she wore in the Jubilee portraits
Her earrings were Queen Victoria's Crown Pearl Drop ones and Jubilee Necklace
Also worn were a pearl bracelet watch and pearl bracelet with a daisy diamond clasp
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall ( Prince Charles beloved Wife) attend the opening for the first time and she looked beautiful and entirely Royal wearing her Greville Tiara (sometimes known as the Boucheron Honeycomb tiara)
The Tiara was made in 1921 for Hon. Mrs. Greville ( a well known society maven) out of stones salvaged from another tiara and made by Boucheron ...Mrs. Greville had no one to leave it to so she left it to the Queen's Mother, Queen Elizabeth and now Camilla wears it
The State Opening takes place in theHouse of Lords Chamber and, before 2011, was usually held in November or December or, in a general election year, when the new Parliament first assembled. In 1974, when two general elections were held, there were two State Openings.
Since there was just recently an election that is why it has happened today on July 28th May, 2015
Queen Elizabeth II has opened every session of the Westminster Parliament since her accession, except in 1959 and 1963, when she was pregnant with Prince Andrew and Prince Edward respectively. These two sessions were opened by Lords Commissioners
