The full trappings of British political tradition will arrive at the UK's parliament today, with the monarch in a horse-drawn carriage, a diamond-studded crown, and lords in ermine capes.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media that Parliament returns from a brief break for the State Opening of Parliament, a mix of politics and pageantry at which Queen Elizabeth II, seated on a golden throne, reads a speech written by the government outlining its plans for the year ahead.

After three years in which Brexit has dominated British politics to the exclusion of other vital issues, Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants the Queen's Speech to give a vision of his plans for the UK after it leaves the European Union.

Tuesday, October 15.

As British lawmakers hold a debate on the queen's speech, scheduled to last several days, EU Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier will update ministers from the 27 other member states on the progress of Brexit talks at a meeting in Luxembourg.

Wednesday, October 16.

Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkle, two of the most important EU leaders in determining the course of Brexit, meet as their two governments hold a joint meeting, a day before a crunch EU summit.
