Queen Elizabeth Makes It Official For Boris Johnson

CBS News reports:

The outgoing PM said she looked forward to returning to Parliament as a lawmaker, to “play my part in making our United Kingdom a great country with a great future, a country that truly works for everyone.”

May then made the short trip to Buckingham Palace and formally tendered her resignation to Queen Elizabeth II, and recommend that the queen accept Johnson as her replacement. Not long after she left, Johnson showed up at the palace to meet the monarch himself.

His car ride to Buckingham Palace was very briefly delayed by a small group of Greenpeace protesters, who ran out into the road to block his vehicle convoy. The protesters were quickly pushed aside by police and Johnson’s Jaguar made it to the monarch’s official London residence.
