State Opening is undoubtedly one of our most glamorous events of the year.
Ambassador members who were lucky in the ballot arrived in their Ascot finery to watch the royal procession.
We then meandered through the main Palace to soak up the atmosphere.
Including a visit to the royal gallery and robing room, plus a brief chat with a BBC crew who were filming the event!
A big thank you to the House of Commons team!
Lunch was followed by an hour spent in the House of Commons chamber listening to the PM and Leader of the Opposition debate the Queen’s speech.
