Another detail earned notice for its absence: In a speech that traditionally notes important state visits - this time around, it was an upcoming visit from the king and queen of Spain - there was no mention of President Trump.
A senior Trump administration source denied that the subject came up when Trump and May spoke in the aftermath of the British general election.
Downing Street refused to comment, saying only that the invitation, which was given by Mrs May on behalf of the Queen when she met Mr Trump in Washington in January, remained unchanged.
Others quipped that the queen might be "trolling" May, pointing out that the 91-year-old British monarch might have been put out by having to attend the delayed formal opening of parliament instead of attending her beloved Royal Ascot horse races.
May offered up the state visit during a bilateral meeting with the US President shortly after his inauguration.
Remain campaigners - including some of her own ministers - could fight proposals to pull Britain out of the EU's customs union and set up its own regime, while curbs on immigration are likely to be another flash-point: May has prioritised bringing the numbers down, while remainers say the needs of businesses to attract worldwide talent and fill skills gaps should be prioritised.
MP's in the House of Commons erupted in laughter following the remark. The main non-Brexit bills include a domestic violence and abuse bill and a data protection bill.

Theresa May had her first Queen's speech this morning, and while policies and manifesto pledges were top of the agenda some viewers were more focussed on the Queen's colourful look.
In other respects, her speech - which is shaped by the governing party's priorities - was notable for what it left out entirely.
The NFU says it is looking forward to working with the new Parliament - across all parties - as the new Agriculture Bill is formally announced in the Queen's Speech.
The video footage from last year's State Opening of Parliament shows that neither nor Mr Corbyn nor then Tory Leader David Cameron bowing after the procession.
But we'll also need the support of the whole Parliament if British farming is to have a profitable future in a post-Brexit world.
