Updated on Wednesday 4 June 2014 by @TVNewsroom

The 2014 State Opening of Parliament takes place today at the Palace of Westminster.

It marks the formal start of the parliamentary year and the Queen’s Speech sets out the government’s agenda for the coming session, outlining proposed policies and legislation.

The event combines politics and pageantry to mark the first day, and will be attended by the Queen, who has only ever missed two opening ceremonies during her reign.

Live TV Coverage will be available on BBC One, BBC News Channel, BBC Parliament and Sky News.

Huw Edwards presents BBC One and BBC News Channel’s coverage from 10.30am, while Dermot Murnaghan fronts Sky News’ coverage from 10am.

Coverage will also be streamed live on the BBC News and Sky News websites
