Britain's Prince Charles, Prince of Wales (R) holds his mother, Britain's Queen Elizabeth II's hand during the State Opening of Parliament in the Houses of Parliament in London on June 21, 2017. 
Queen Elizabeth II will formally open parliament and announce the British government's legislative programme on Wednesday, two days later than planned. The state opening, a ceremony full of pomp in which the monarch reads out the Queen's Speech detailing the government's programme for the coming year, was due to take place on June 19, but was delayed after Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservative party lost their majority in the House of Commons in the June 8 election. / AFP PHOTO / POOL AND AFP PHOTO / Arthur Edwards        (Photo credit should read ARTHUR EDWARDS/AFP/Getty Images)
