HRH, the Prince of Wales, represented the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament on May 10, 2022, signalling the start of the parliamentary year. It was only the third time in the Queen's 70-year reign that she did not open a session of Parliament.

The Government writes the Queen's Speech. It lays out the Government's agenda for the new session of Parliament. The Government's proposed legislation for the new parliamentary sessions includes 38 bills ranging from tackling climate change to levelling up.
