The monarch, 95, will not attend the State Opening of Parliament for the first time in six decades.

Her Majesty, 96, made the tough decision not to attend due to her difficulties walking.

Prince Charles, 72, is set to stand in for his mother at Parliament, following a conversation between the Queen and her aides.

He will deliver the speech at around 11.25 and can be watched on The Sun’s website.

The monarch has missed only two state openings — in 1959 and 1963, when she was pregnant with the future princes Andrew and Edward.

Bill of rights

A package of measures to wrestle powers from EU judges will be introduced.

Dominic Raab told The Sun on Sunday the legislation would make it easier to deport more foreign criminals.

He vowed to also kick back against creeping privacy laws threatening to freedom of speech.

Media overhaul

Nadine Dorries’ controversial plan to privatise Channel 4 is expected to be included in legislation.

Votes for homes

Residents will be given a say over any new regeneration in their communities to strip powers away from greedy developers.

There will also be requirement for owners of empty properties to rent them out.

Rights for renters

Renters will finally be given rights against shameless landlords chucking them out for no reason.

The long-awaited protections against “no fault” evictions are expected to appear in tomorrow’s Queen’s Speech.

Currently landlords can send their tenants packing with eight weeks notice without any explanation.
