Pageboy faints during Queen's Speech

One of the Queen's pageboys fainted in the House of Lords as the monarch delivered her speech to Parliament.

A loud thud could be heard as the boy fell to the ground. He was helped out of the chamber while the Queen continued reading the speech without appearing to break her delivery.

A House of Lords spokesman confirmed that the boy was fine.
