Queen Elizabeth II opened U.K. parliament in a ceremony full of pomp, setting out the government's ambitions for the next two years.

The Queen made no mention of President Donald Trump's state visit to the U.K. with speculation that the visit has been dropped or postponed.

Government officials said that the omission of any mention of Trump's visit did not necessarily confirm he was not coming to the U.K. this year, but said it was "inevitable" that people would speculate that the visit had been delayed.

The Queen did, however, make mention of the King and Queen of Spain's state visit.
