The opening of parliament is a key constitutional duty and cannot take place without the monarch. The Queen was to delegate this responsibility to Charles, Prince of Wales, and William, Duke of Cambridge, who are state advisers.

The Elizabeth Line, known as the Crossrail when it was under construction, was built on a much larger scale than the city’s existing “Pipes” line. The first stage opens to the public on May 24.

The 62-mile network is built around a core of 26 miles of brand new tunnels through central London, dug with incredible precision under one of the most densely developed cities in the world.

At the peak of construction Crossrail was the largest engineering project in Europe.

Double tunnels 20 feet in diameter and up to 130 feet deep are entwined around the foundations of buildings, London Underground tunnels and countless other structures and utilities.

Between 2012 and 2015, digging took three years using eight 1,000-ton tunnel boring machines.

It is estimated that before the pandemic, about 200 million passengers a year will use the Elizabeth Line if it is fully open, but this figure has been questioned due to the rapid change in work schedules.
