UK Parliament opens with pomp, problems for Boris Johnson

FILE - Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, with Prince Charles, proceeds through the Royal Gallery before delivering a speech in the House of Lords during the State Opening of Parliament at the Palace of Westminster in London, on May 11, 2021. Queen Elizabeth II has attended almost every state opening during her 70-year reign, but has dramatically scaled back her public appearances since health problems put her in hospital for a night in October. Buckingham Palace says the 96-year-old monarch, who has mobility issues, plans not to attend this time and her son Prince Charles will read the speech. (Richard Pohle/Pool via AP)
