Boris Johnson asumió oficialmente el papel de primer ministro el 24 de julio después de ganar el concurso de liderazgo del Partido Conservador. Su término comenzó con una audiencia privada con la reina Isabel. Aunque no se le permitió revelar lo que él y el monarca habían discutido, se dice que Johnson todavía derramó un detalle jugoso.

El nuevo primer ministro del Reino Unido, Boris Johnson, ha dicho a los empleados de Downing Street que la reina Elizabeth señaló durante su primera reunión privada «No sé por qué alguien querría el puesto». Según un corresponsal de Euronews, que informó sobre el supuesto incidente, el nuevo primer ministro británico lo reveló durante una gira en el Número 10 «antes de que el personal le dijera que no repitiera esas cosas tan fuerte».

​Sharing details of such meetings is a “major breach” of royal protocol. However, Boris Jonson is not the first prime minister who’s had problems with this social construct due to his loose lips. In 2014, David Cameron had to apologise and acknowledge that he was embarrassed after he was caught on camera chatting about the Scottish referendum with US billionaire and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The microphone of the camera, filming them, picked up Cameron saying that the Queen told him she “had purred down the line” when he called to inform her about the crucial vote results.

Johnson, known as a Brexit supporter, assumed office on 24 July after defeating UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt in the race to succeed Theresa May as the leader of the Conservative Party and PM. While his predecessor stumbled, trying to deliver Brexit and get the UK Parliament to vote for her agreement with the EU, Johnson has promised to withdraw the UK from the European Union by 31 October with or without a deal.
