On Friday night, the prime minister, having secured his majority and delivered a triumphant speech on the steps of Downing Street, celebrated his victory with his partner Carrie Symonds at a party attended by a string of A-list celebrities. We are talking about a formal ceremony where the victor of the election receives from the monarch for permission to lead the Cabinet of Ministers, reports "Interfax".

Mr Johnson was greeted at Buckingham Palace by the Queen's Equerry-in-Waiting Lieutenant Colonel Charles Richards and her private secretary Edward Young before meeting the Queen in her private apartments. This is an unusually long time for such cases, observers say. Already on Friday he is expected to make a statement in which will tell about the results of the conversation with the Queen.

He added: "In winning this election, we have won votes and the trust of people who have never voted Conservative before and people have always voted for other parties". However, Johnson's office said that her speech on Thursday will be a continuation of her previous speech, with more additions by the government which will include boosting the judicial system and also propose a law that will provide a multi-year funding settlement for Britain's state-funded National Health Service.

But despite nearly 14 million people voting in favour of Johnson's government, the comparatively tiny crowd, seemingly unable to get over the election result, became embroiled in violent clashes with the police.

Since the main agenda of the Conservative was to get Brexit done, therefore the main focus of the new government is to seek approval in the parliament for Britain's exit from the European Union.
