The British Queen will appoint the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom in Scotland early next week. This is the first time that a nomination will not take place in London at Buckingham Palace. British media I write that the poor health of the 96-year-old queen is to blame. By staying at Balmoral Castle in Scotland, we hope the date will pass anyway.

Since the Queen was admitted to hospital in October, the palace has spoken of “frequent mobility issues”, making it difficult for her to stand and walk. In recent months she had to cancel several festive events, which is unusual for her.

For example, it was absent from the special church service on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of the founding of the government. She also skipped the throne speech for the first time since 1963 due to her health.

The British Conservative Party will announce on 5 September who will succeed Boris Johnson as Leader and therefore Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Queen Elizabeth is staying at her summer residence at Balmoral Castle. There she will receive Johnson and his successor next week.

Fourteen prime ministers

Johnson formally submitted his resignation to the Queen at Balmoral Castle on Tuesday. His successor, Rishi Sunak or Liz Truss, also traveled to Scotland that day.

Queen Elizabeth has so far appointed 14 new prime ministers during her reign. At the beginning of July, Johnson announced his resignation as party leader and therefore as prime minister.

There are now two candidates left: former Finance Minister Rishi Sunak and Secretary of State Liz Truss. They will face each other in the last round. At least 180,000 Conservative Party members received a ballot at the beginning of August and can vote until September 2.
