According to The BBC’s royal correspondent the Queen “had no option” but to act upon the advice given by ministers.

Nicholas Witchell said, the monarch would have likely felt “concerned” over being “boxed in” by Boris Johnson’s decision to suspend parliament.

The Royal correspondent said, The Queen has never during her reign refused to accept the advice of her ministers.

“She is a monarch guided by precedent. Therefore, she will have felt pretty boxed in, that she had no option.

“She and her advisors, I have little doubt, will be frankly resentful of the way this has been done and will be concerned at the headlines which say, ‘Queen suspends Parliament’.”
