European Union sure about that hat, your majesty?

Chastened by an election that left her Conservative Party short of a majority in parliament and reopened debate on the nature of Britain's European Union exit, May also dropped firm pledges on social care, education and corporate governance.

In remarks following the speech, May acknowledged government failings in helping victims of a massive fire in a west London tower block on June 14.

"My government's priority is to secure the best possible deal as the country leaves the European Union", the queen said.

Of the 27 proposed bills put forth in the speech, almost a third pertain to the U.K.'s departure from the European Union.

"That was a failure of the state, local, and national, to help people when they needed it most", she said, according The Guardian.

Russia 's defence ministry declined to comment on the encounter but politicians in Moscow described the action as a "provocation". It has said in the past that all Russian flights over the Baltic are conducted in strict accordance with global law.

"This is a broad program for government that we've put forward, we think it's a good program for government, we think it's a program. that the whole house can get behind", May's spokesman said.

Party sources insisted Mrs May was "confident" of getting the Speech through the Commons, even though the result of next Thursday's vote will be on a knife edge if no deal is reached with the DUP, who were reported to be holding out for £2 billion of investment in health and infrastructure in Northern Ireland. Minority governments are a rare occurrence in British parliamentary politics where the electoral system usually produces a governing majority. The Duke will miss the ceremony after being hospitalised due to an infection.

May on Wednesday slimmed down her legislative program, omitting several policies touted during the Conservative Party's election campaign, including plans to change funding for the care of older people, which opponents dubbed the "dementia tax".

"While this will be a government that consults and listens, we are clear that we are going to see Brexit through, working with parliament, business, the devolved administrations and others to ensure a smooth and orderly withdrawal", May said.

Of 27 Bills and draft bills unveiled in Mrs May's first Queen's Speech, eight are devoted to the complex process of leaving the EU, including a Repeal Bill to overturn the 1972 Act which took Britain into the European Economic Community, and separate Bills on customs, trade, immigration, fisheries, agriculture, nuclear safeguards and the worldwide sanctions regime.

Instead, May lost her majority as many voters shunned the government's approach to Brexit and rebelled against seven years of austerity.

It also outlined plans to allow sectors such as electric vehicles and satellite technology to maintain a competitive edge, as well as promising to deliver an industrial strategy that spread prosperity across the country.

Conservative sources said talks with the DUP were "ongoing" after the Northern Irish party warned its support can not be "taken for granted". The party should not be taken for granted, it said.
