Queen Elizabeth misses opening of UK parliament for first time in 59 years DW News.

The British government on Tuesday pledged to improve health care, cut crime and revive the country's economy as part of its plan for the next year.
The set of sweeping promises came during the traditional Parliament opening ceremony, which Queen Elizabeth II usually presides over, reading out the government's program. But this year, the 96-year-old monarch was absent due to "episodic mobility problems," according to Buckingham Palace. In a sign of the looming transition of power, the queen's son and heir, 73-year-old Charles, Prince of Wales, made the speech instead. He laid out 38 bills the government planned to pass.
