For the ceremonial event, the 93-year-old monarch opted for a patterned blue dress and accessorized with a few pieces of jewelry and a Launer bag which is her favorite. The image was released with a statement which read:

“The Queen, this afternoon, received the Right Honorable Boris Johnson MP in an Audience and requested him to form a new Administration.” Before going ahead to reveal that the former PM, Theresa May had visited earlier to tender her resignation as “Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury.”

The Queen is expected to proceed with her vacation, which was postponed due to the need to honor tradition and welcome the new prime minister into the palace.

By the end of the week, she would have retired to her leisure location, which is the Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
