Trump visit to Britain left out of Queen's speech

Queen outlines UK government agenda in scaled-down speech

Queen outlines UK government agenda in scaled-down speech

The state opening took place only days after another huge annual event, Trooping the Color, a celebration of the queen's birthday.

Queen Elizabeth didn't include an official visit by the commander in chief during her speech before Parliament Wednesday.

Bright blue and peppered with several yellow daisies - much like the yellow stars featured on the flag - the hat led many to wonder if the Queen was making a statement about the UK's vote to leave the EU.

From the speech alone, one can infer that Trump is not to be expected to visit the country between now and Her Majesty's next speech, which will be in two years' time.

Of the 27 proposed bills put forth in the speech, almost a third pertain to the U.K.'s departure from the European Union. There was also legislative proposals covering customs, trade, immigration, fisheries, agriculture, nuclear safeguards and the global sanctions regime.

The retail industry's biggest priority is to work alongside the Government to secure a fair Brexit for consumers.

Notably promises to reform the recent changes to the "broken" business rates system was left out of the speech, but Dickinson argues this must take priority to ensure a level playing field in the years to come.

Grammar schools were not mentioned at all, despite the Conservative manifesto pledge to consult on opening new selective schools.

The omission has raised enormous doubt as to whether the state visit will go as planned, considering that Queen Elizabeth did mention King Felipe's visit in July. The high-rise complex suffered a deadly blaze last week in which scores of people were killed and still others were stripped of their homes.

Prime Minister Theresa May has previously called for binding shareholder votes on executive pay, mandatory publication of pay ratios and advisory roles for workers on remuneration committees. She told politicians about measures created to ensure that Grenfell Tower fire victims voices are heard. And, whatever the proposals, a minority Government may have bother getting them through.

"That was a failure of the state, local, and national, to help people when they needed it most", she said, according to The Guardian.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May attends the first session of Parliament, June 21, 2017.

The Queen delivered a speech that outlined a government program that bore little resemblance to the manifesto that Prime Minister Theresa May took to the country nearly two weeks ago.

A surprising inclusion of the Queen's speech was the announcement that "unfair tenant fees" will be banned immediately.
