A Queen’s speech… but with someone very important missing. It was the first time her majesty had missed the State Opening of Parliament for 59 years, following a decision taken by the monarch and her doctors. The Prince of Wales read on her behalf, resulting in a historical moment that gave us a taste of what the future might look like.

The speech outlined 38 Bills, including seven measures scrapping EU regulation – covering areas from data reform to gene-editing to financial services.

We speak to the Evening Standard’s Royal Editor Robert Jobson about the significance of this moment and the paper’s West End Final writer Jack Kessler about the political implications.
