Queen Elizabeth II opens Parliament as Brexit looms

A legislative agenda has been laid out by the UK's monarch despite doubts over the prime minister's ability to govern.

    Britain's Queen Elizabeth II has outlined her government's agenda during the official state opening of the Parliament of the United Kingdom.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson's cabinet has stressed the importance of leaving the European Union by the October 31 deadline, but with a minority government, it is unlikely that the Parliament of the United Kingdom will pass any of the proposals mentioned in the speech.
