The Queen, 95, lost her husband Prince Philip on April 9. Today (May 11) she will attend Parliament to deliver the Queen’s Speech which outlines the Government’s plans for the upcoming year. 

The Queen’s crown travelled to Parliament ahead of her arrival on May 11.

The crown, which is adorned with more than 2,000 diamonds, weighs a massive two and a half pounds.
