Boris Johnson’s proposed date for the Queen’s Speech would fall on the day the monarch usually departs for her festive break at Sandringham.

The Queen, 93, often travels to her Norfolk estate on the Thursday before Christmas, having hosted a family lunch for the royals at Buckingham Palace that week.

Downing Street said Mr Johnson would call for a Queen’s Speech to take place on Thursday December 19 with “reduced ceremonial elements” if he remains Prime Minister after the General Election.

“This is due both to the early General Election and the proximity of the state opening to Christmas.

“If there is a change of Government following the election it is anticipated that the Queen’s Speech would be in January on a more usual timetable, but this would be a matter for the incoming administration.”

The illness forced the Queen to miss the Christmas Day service at St Mary Magdalene church in Sandringham for the first time in 28 years. If the Queen does attend church, it is possible she will be joined by Prince William and wife Kate who spent Christmas with the Middleton family in Berkshire.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said of the plans for a December 19 state opening: “It might impact minorly.”

It is thought that if the ceremony were to take place on December 19, it would be held in the morning, meaning the monarch, who would attend with the Prince of Wales, could leave for Sandringham in the afternoon if she chose to.

Reduced ceremonial elements would mean no crown, no robes and no carriages.

In 2017, the monarch wore a day dress and blue hat with yellow flowers, which sparked comparisons to the European flag, and arrived by car.

The PM says there will still be time to debate Brexit before October' s deadline, but the move sparks anger and a new legal challenge. Parliament will be suspended just days after MPs return to work in September - and only a few weeks before the Brexit deadline.

The pomp and ceremony of the event was scaled back because the date fell too close to Trooping the Colour.

The next Queen’s Speech will be the monarch’s 66th – and if it does happen to take place on December 19, will be just 66 days, or nine weeks and three days, after her last.

Margaret Thatcher, Edward Heath, Winston Churchill, Boris Johnson posing for a photo in a suit and tie: Some are seen as strong and capable leaders of a great nation, others are widely regarded as self-serving buffoons. The past hundred or so years has seen plenty of British Prime Ministers. As the 2019 General Election looms large, let's take a look at the past hundred or so years of PMs that have come from the Conservative party. Who were they? When did they serve? And what was their legacy? Let's find out.

The state opening on October 14 was criticised for its timing, and came only 10 days before Mr Johnson made his successful call for the General Election to take place.

Former foreign secretary Dame Margaret Beckett branded it a sham, while Sir Ed Davey, deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats, accused Mr Johnson of being discourteous to the monarch.

Dame Margaret said at the time: “Everybody knows this is a sort of sham Queen’s Speech…We all know that what the Government wants is an election tomorrow.”
