Theresa May Becomes The U.K.’s Prime Minister

Hosted by

The United Kingdom was without a Prime Minister today when David Cameron delivered his final speech from No. 10 Downing Street in London.

But the vacancy didn’t last long. Soon after Cameron notified Queen Elizabeth he was stepping down, the Queen asked Theresa May, another Conservative Party Member, to form a government.
