NEW DELHI: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reportedly apologised to Queen Elizabeth II, following the Supreme Court verdict against his decision to discontinue the Parliament.
The reports suggest that Johnson spoke to the Queen after the UK Supreme Court ruled that he had unlawfully suspended the Parliament for five weeks.
A No 10 Downing Street source told the Sunday Times reported that Johnson got on to the Queen to say how sorry he was, soon after the court’s ruling.
The development has, however, led to a trust deficit between Buckingham Palace and Downing Street.
Meanwhile, the Opposition Parliamentarians, as well as the members of his own Conservative Party, had accused him of trying to escape scrutiny ahead of the October 31 Brexit deadline.
Earlier, the British Queen had approved the suspension of the Parliament till October 14, since the British Prime Minister Boris Johnson intended to facilitate the Brexit plan.
Johnson wanted the UK to leave the EU on October 31, even if there would be no deal.
In June 2016, 52% voted the United Kingdom (UK) to quit the European Union (EU). The UK and the EU agreed to a deal in November 2018 but Parliamentarians rejected it.
