These are ‘worrying times’ for the Queen

Sky News Australia host Piers Morgan says these are “worrying times” for the Queen as she faces increasingly poor health.

Prince Charles has read the Queen’s speech at this year’s State Opening of Parliament after she withdrew due to mobility issues.

It’s the first time since 1963 that the Queen has missed the constitutional ceremony, which sets out the UK government’s legislative plans.

“Today was so much more than just a constitutional collector’s item – no one wants to talk about this but the monarchy, and with it Britain, is now hurtling towards a momentous transition,” Mr Morgan said.

“So much about what it is to be British has been defined by the constant, stoic, stately presence of one woman.
