Il re (o la regina) fanno il discorso del Trono, così si chiama, ad ogni apertura di sessione del Parlamento dal XIV° secolo. E poco è cambiato, se non che il ruolo del sovrano britannico è cambiato non poco nel frattempo. Durante il discorso è considerato sconveniente mostrare segni di approvazione o disapprovazione. Niente applausi, siamo inglesi! Ecco le immagini dell’arrivo di Elisabetta II, la più longeva regnante britannica di sempre, a Westminster per il discorso del 2016.
