Boris Johnson met the Queen at Buckingham Palace today as he formally took over as Prime Minister from Theresa May.
He arrived at the monarch's London home shortly after 3pm after swerving a Greenpeace protest that tried to cut off his journey down the Mall from Westminster.
His car swept into the palace minutes after Theresa May had herself met the Queen to formally step down after three years - immediately heading for her home in Berkshire to begin life as a backbencher.
She had emotionally wished her successor Johnson earlier as she delivered a thinly-veiled message that he must secure a Brexit deal.
