Following Downing Street’s apology to the Queen, the Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has renewed his demand for Boris Johnson to resign.

Sir Keir said, “This shows just how seriously Boris Johnson has degraded the office of Prime Minister.

“The Conservatives have let Britain down.

“An apology isn’t the only thing the Prime Minister should be offering the Palace today.

“Boris Johnson should do the decent thing and resign.”

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Ed Davey called on Johnson to personally apologise to Her Majesty the Queen.

Sir Ed said, “Boris Johnson should apologise personally to the Queen for the offence he’s caused her and millions around the country mourning for loved ones.

“He should also use that opportunity to officially hand in his resignation.”

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said in response to the two parties, “It is deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning and No10 has apologised to the Palace.

“You heard from the PM this week, he’s recognised No 10 should be held to the highest standards, and take responsibility for things we did not get right.”
