Boris Johnson's ex blasts 'petulant' Prince William-'Queen's heirs can't hold it together'

Following the resignation of 48 people in his Government, Prime Minister Boris

Johnson announced that he would be stepping down from his position as leader of

the Conservative Party. Speaking from outside Downing Street, he thanked those

who voted Conservative at the last election, and said the reason he fought so long to

remain in office was because "I thought it was my job, my duty and my obligation to

you". Having taken over following the resignation of Theresa May, Mr Johnson spent

three years in Number 10, overseeing the final steps of Brexit, the coronavirus

pandemic and beginning of the current cost of living crisis.

The resignation audience typically takes place at Buckingham Palace.
