Britain's Queen Elizabeth leaves the Palace of Westminster during the State Opening of Parliament in London, on December 3, 2008. Queen Elizabeth unveiled the British government's legislative programme for the next year Wednesday, stressing its "overriding priority" was to bolster the economy against looming recession. The lavish ceremony surrounding the Queen's Speech -- when she speaks from a gold throne in the House of Lords, wearing an ermine robe and a crown studded with nearly 3,000 diamonds -- contrasted with her message of economic caution.
