Queen Elizabeth II opens Parliament

British Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister David Cameron are working together to move the country to the right after the right-wing UK Independence Party showed its popularity in recent local elections.

Surrounded by traditional pomp during Wednesday's state opening of parliament, the queen delivered a speech authored by members of parliament that called for reforms in immigration, social care, and pension.
