New British Prime Minister: Queen Elizabeth stays in Scotland

The successor to Boris Johnson (58) as British Prime Minister will be announced early next week. However, Queen Elizabeth II (96) will appoint Johnson's successor in a break with tradition at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, and not at Buckingham Palace in London as before. This is reported by the British BBC.

The formal ceremony planned for Tuesday will therefore take place at the Queen's Scottish summer residence, as the 96-year-old suffers from "mobility problems". This is intended to provide planning security for the future prime minister in order to rule out any last-minute changes that may be necessary. Foreign Minister Liz Truss (47) and ex-Finance Minister Rishi Sunak (42) are fighting to succeed Johnson.

Queen Elizabeth II will appoint Johnson's successor, the 15th prime minister of her 70-year reign. The heads of government were traditionally appointed beforehand at Buckingham Palace in London. The monarch is currently spending her summer break at her Scottish estate in Balmoral.
