It is the first time that the Royal Family has visited Wales.

The event was scheduled to take place shortly after the elections in May, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Queen will deliver a speech in the Senedd room, followed by speeches by the Prime Minister of Wales, Mark Drakeford, and Senedd speaker Elin Jones.

There will be a mix of recorded and live performances by Welsh artists, centered around the theme of Your Voice.

Drakeford said the queen opening the Senedd marks “the significance of parliament” in the nation.

He told Sky News: “Decisions are made in four different parliaments and I know the Queen has always taken the work she does to mark that very seriously.

“As I said, she has never missed an opening of a new Senedd term and despite the circumstances and her age, she will make that attempt again today.”

Members of the Royal Family will also greet the students of Mount Stuart Primary School in front of the Senedd, where Welsh and British National Anthems will be played, and a royal salute will be given by the Royal Navy with the Band of the Royal Marines .

The WNO Youth Opera – which has not performed live for 18 months due to corona restrictions – will perform Ar Lan y Mor.

Other party leaders, members of Wales’ first Youth Parliament and local dignitaries who have supported their communities during the pandemic will also have the chance to meet the royal party.

The ceremonial mace will be carried to the Senedd by a member of the security team, Shahzad Khan, and placed in the entrenchment to mark the official opening of the sixth Senedd.

Earlier this month, the Queen officially opened the sixth session of the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood.
