Liz Truss is the 56th UK Prime Minister

The Right Honourable Elizabeth Truss MP was received in audience by the Queen today, and she was asked to establish a new administration, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

Upon being appointed as Prime Minister and First Lord of the Treasury, Ms. Truss accepted Her Majesty’s invitation and kissed her hands.

The momentous occasion happened soon after Mr. Boris Johnson and his wife Carrie left Balmoral after their final 40-minute visit with the Queen. 

The monarch accepted, and Buckingham Palace said she was “gracefully pleased” to do so.

Ms. Truss won’t have much time to rejoice because she needs to return to London to work out strategies for reducing skyrocketing energy costs.

She is anticipated to place a limit on annual household spending of £2,500 while maintaining the £400 handout that had previously been pledged. 

According to Mail Online, this would leave the number just beyond the $1,900 present threshold and $1,000 below the amount it was expected to reach next month.

Around 4 o’clock, Ms. Truss will give a speech of her own on the Downing Street steps.

After garnering slightly more than 81,000 votes against Mr. Sunak’s slightly more 60,000, the foreign secretary becomes the third female in the country.
