Donald Trump's proposed state visit to United Kingdom in doubt

One confused Twitter user wrote'Is the Queen sending a message by wearing an'European hat? Blue with gold stars

"My ministers are committed to working with Parliament, the devolved administrations, business and others to build the widest consensus on the country's future outside the European Union", the queen said.

Fans were still able to catch a glimpse of the crown though, as it travelled in its own Royals Royce to Parliament from the Tower of London, where it is kept as part of the Crown Jewels collection.

The legislation will have to accommodate whatever future agreement is made on how UK-EU trade works - something which is now deeply unclear. One includes a Repeal Bill to overturn the 1972 Act which took Britain into the European Economic Community.

Another section of the policy paper pledged that the government would "bring forward proposals to ensure that critical national infrastructure is protected to safeguard national security".

In her introduction to the speech notes, UK Prime Minister Theresa May admits that the recent election result was "not the one I hoped for" and says that her priority is "getting Brexit right". The UK's independent trade policy will be supported by new bills on trade and customs, the Queen added.

Instead, the Queen said: "My government will continue to work to ensure that every child has the opportunity to attend a good school and that all schools are fairly funded".

As MPs began debating the government's plans, Mrs May said the country was split "between red and blue, young and old and Leave and Remain" and Parliament's challenge was to heal, not reflect those divisions.

Airline veteran Richard Anderson to head Amtrak
President Trump's budget has proposed cutting federal funding to all long-distance Amtrak routes except the Northeast Corridor. Penn Station's owner and operator, Amtrak , on Monday announced that it has a new president and chief operating officer.

Theresa May intends to put forward new legislation to help the United Kingdom become the leading location for European commercial spaceflights.

"There is also a big discussion around labour supply, so we will also work to make sure the Immigration Bill picks up some of the challenges specific to agriculture, such as seasonal workers".

Proposals to ban unfair tenant fees feature on the agenda, the Queen said.

He bemoaned lack of reference to the public sector pay cap and said the draft bill on letting fees merely saw the issue "kicked into the long grass" rather than providing "early, much-needed respite for hard pressed renters".

Apart from the quantity of Brexit Bills, the Queen's Speech was most notable for the number of manifesto pledges which had been abandoned.

Following her general election disaster, the Prime Minister was forced to jettison a succession of promises from the Conservative manifesto.

"The visit wasnt mentioned in the Queens Speech because a date hasnt been fixed yet".
