On Tuesday, Prince Charles, the Crown Prince of the British throne, replaced his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, for opening the parliament.

The future king read the Queen's speech as Her Majesty missed the session due to "mobility issues" according to a statement issued by Buckingham Palace.

The statement revealed: "The Queen continues to experience episodic mobility problems, and in consultation with her doctors has reluctantly decided that she will not attend the State Opening of Parliament tomorrow," it said.

Regarding the speech of the Queen at the parliament opening, it began with the pledges of the government, asserting: "Her majesty's government's priority is to grow and strengthen the economy and help ease the cost of living for families," the speech began.

Prince Charles pointed out to the government plans to introduce, including bills on education, animal welfare, transport, and supporting the economically poor regions.

It also introduced that the UK will continue to reform more laws and regulations regarding the field of business after Brexit.

Prince Charles highlighted: "Her majesty's government will lead the way in championing security around the world. It will continue to invest in her majesty's gallant forces."
