Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II formally opens parliament Wednesday with a speech outlining the legislative goals of Prime Minister Theresa May’s government.

The package includes a number of items related to Britain’s exit from the European Union, a process set off by a referendum last year and the terms of which are currently under negotiation with the EU. Members of parliament will vote next week on whether to approve the items laid out in the speech.


WATCH: Queen’s message to lawmakers

May’s party lost its majority in parliament during a snap election she called for earlier this month hoping to strengthen the government’s position for the Brexit talks. The result has left her seeking partners for a minority government.

“The election result was not the one I hoped for, but this government will respond with humility and resolve to the message the governate sent,” May said in a statement ahead of the queen’s speech.

The Brexit process is due to be completed by the end of March 2019, and due to the complex talks about what to do with issues such as trade agreements and freedom of movement Britain’s session of parliament is due to last for two years.
