Queen Elizabeth Personally Welcomes the New Prime Minister Boris Johnson

Today marks the start of a new era as Britain welcomes her new prime minister, Boris Johnson. A traditional part of the inauguration includes an official visit to the Head of State, and so, he was welcomed into the Buckingham Palace by The Queen.

In an Instagram post from the royal family’s page, an official image detailing the visit was shared to the public. The Queen could be seen having a handshake with the new prime minister while he wore a bright smile and a subtle bow.

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.
