That's all from BBC Scotland's Holyrood coverage of the Queen's address to the Scottish Parliament, as part of commemorations marking 20 years since its opening.
Addressing the chamber, the Queen said: "I am pleased to join you today in marking the 20th anniversary of the Scottish Parliament.
"We fondly remember that proud day when new members gathered in the Assembly Hall to celebrate Scotland's first parliament in 300 years.
"I have noted on previous occasions my great affection for Scotland, and the many happy and personal connections I enjoy with this wonderful country. "
In her response, Nicola Sturgeon recalled the "optimism" for the Scottish Parliament when it was created, but also spoke about the "scale of the challenge" MSPs faced then.
The first minister said: "There were times perhaps, especially in the first few years of the parliament, when the sense of challenge possibly outweighed the sense of optimism."
Ms Sturgeon added: "Although this parliament is only 20 years young, it has long come of age."
Presiding Officer Ken Macintosh got the biggest laugh of the day as he told the Queen and the Duke of Rothsay that he had once signed "chicken parliament" by accident in BSL .
