Queen to stay in Scotland for audience with Boris Johnson and new PM

The Queen is to remain in Scotland to receive Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his replacement, Buckingham Palace has said. The 96-year-old monarch, who has faced ongoing mobility issues, traditionally holds audiences with outgoing and incoming premiers at Buckingham Palace. But Mr Johnson, who will tender his resignation, and the new Conservative Party leader who will be asked to form a government – either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak – will travel to Balmoral for the key audiences on Tuesday September 6 instead. The Queen is on her traditional summer break in the Scottish Highlands.
