A page boy standing less than 8 feet from the Queen fainted as she read out her speech in the Lords.
The boy, who was standing to the right of the Queen, fell to the ground with a ‘thud’ eight minutes and 53 seconds into the speech as the Duchess of Cornwall looked on with concern.
He was carried out of the chamber, while the three remaining boys assisted the Queen as she left the Lords after she completed the speech.
The Queen, however, carried on reading without interruption. Mark Pritchard, the Conservative MP, told Politicshome: “As ever, Her Majesty was the consummate professional”.
