UK: The Queen set to attend Cabinet at Number 10

THE Queen will become the first monarch for at least a century to attend Cabinet today when she takes a seat beside Prime Minister David Cameron at the famous Number 10 table.

Arranged to mark her Diamond Jubilee, she will be presented with a gift paid for through contributions by each Secretary of State.

But although she is expected only to observe the discussions and not contribute to the debate, the move has been criticised by a constitutional expert.
