How does Queen Elizabeth II determine who is to accompany her to the state opening of Parliament?

For the state opening of Parliament, a family member usually accompanies the queen. Family members who accompanied the queen in past years include Princess Margaret, the Duchess of Gloucester, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Does the queen just randomly choose a family member to accompany her, or is her selection of a family member to accompany her done on a rotation basis?

    The Queen and family choose--it is usually the spouse, (but Philip has retired), the heir, his wife, sometimes the Princess Royal. Since there has been an active change to streamline who represents the face of working royals, I think that the royals who will take part from now on are the Prince of Wales, his wife, and perhaps Prince William and his wife. It is still possible that Anne also attend since she not only is a senior royal, she also is one of the hardest working ones along with her elder brother...

    My money is on Andrew next time. The long odds outsider is Meghan.

  • The rule is that Sir Prince Philip has to go unless he can persuade someone else to fill in for him. It's very dull and there's not much chance of anyone agreeing to go a second time - so I would expect he'll have to pass the gig on to the servants in the near future.ย

    Her Royal Majesty the Queen will likely ask His Highness Prince Andrew and Her Highness Duchess Sarah (Fergie) to accompany her to the next opening. She will do so to help rehabilitate Andrewโ€™s reputation.ย
