Rishi Sunak is now the 57th prime minister of England after being invited to form a government by King Charles.
He is the third prime minister this year and will enter Downing Street as the youngest Prime Minister in two centuries.
In his first speech as prime minister Sunak says he will always be grateful to Boris Johnson for his “remarkable achievements” as prime minister. He will appreciate Johnson’s generosity and adds.
Sunak says his government will have integrity, professionalism and responsibility at every level. “Loyalty is earned and I will earn yours,” he says.
The audience between King Charles and the new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, marks a symbolic handover of power, in a mixture of ceremony and political pragmatism.
It is a cult of continuity, against a background of great political chaos.
