Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, centre left, and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, proceed through the Royal Gallery, during the State Opening of Parliament, in the House of Lords, in London, Wednesday June 4, 2014. The State Opening of Parliament is an annual pageant of pomp and politics centred on the Queen's Speech, a legislative program written by the government but read out by the monarch before a crowd of lawmakers, ermine-robed peers and ceremonial officials in bright garb evoking centuries past.

FILE - In this Monday, June 6, 1994 file photo, Queen Elizabeth II is seen walking through the British Military Cemetery in Bayeux, France, during ceremonies honoring veterans and war dead on the 50th anniversary of D-Day. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip have for the most part stopped traveling overseas _ a reluctant concession to their advancing years _ but they are scrapping this policy next week for the 70th commemoration of the momentous D-Day invasion on June 6, 2014. The perils of World War II directly shaped the lives of Elizabeth, 88, and Philip, 92. The anniversary is so heartfelt that the royal couple is preparing to cross the English Channel once more, this time on a Eurostar train through the Channel Tunnel Elizabeth helped 20 years ago.
