10 Downing Street Apologises to Queen Over Lockdown Parties
Downing Street has apologised to Queen Elizabeth II for the lockdown parties on the eve of the funeral of her husband Prince Philip. Staff at the Prime Minister’s office held two separate events on 16 April, which included the former director of communications James Slack and a government photographer. The prime minister’s spokesperson said the incident was “deeply regrettable”. The events occurred amid rising coronavirus cases across the United Kingdom.
The prime minister has been under fire in recent weeks for attending a large gathering in Downing Street’s garden and wheeling in a case of wine.
According to the Telegraph, the raucous party saw a staff member going to the shops with a suitcase to buy alcohol, and a swing used by the PM’s toddler son was broken in the garden during the gathering. The Downing Street spokesman has apologised for the blunder and says mistakes have been made. However, the prime minister’s apology was a verbal one, and he has not apologized in writing.
The prime minister’s apology follows criticism from various political parties. Liberal Democrat leader Ed Davey said that the picture of the Queen alone in the garden of Downing Street is the image of a lockdown. Another Liberal Democrat, Emily Thornberry, argued that the photo shows how the Queen was feeling alone, despite the lockdown. The prime minister has said the events were “serious” and has “set high standards”.
The Prime Minister apologised to the Queen, the monarch and the country, and asked people not to make a fuss. It’s not the first time Downing Street has had to take responsibility. Last year, the government also apologised for the events and said it would take greater care in future. But the Queen is the one who is to blame, and he must make the right decisions.
Downing Street apologises to the Queen for the “inappropriate and inappropriate” parties held at No. 10 during the lockdown. The Prime Minister’s office has repeatedly apologised for the lockdown parties. The prime minister’s spokeswoman has urged the government to take responsibility. The PM’s office has denied the scandal and has apologised to the Queen and the public.
A spokesman for Boris Johnson has also apologised to the Queen for the “inappropriate” lockdown parties. The London-based Prime Minister’s office has apologised to the Queen for the disruption caused to the monarchy. The government’s apologies come after the death of Prince Philip and the scandal of the royal lockdown parties.
The Prime Minister’s office apologises to the Queen for the scandal over the alleged lockdown parties. The government also apologises for the scandal surrounding a former minister’s lockdown parties. The Prime Minister resigned from his post on Tuesday, but his office is still holding a staff party on the eve of the King’s funeral. Despite the apologies, the party remains illegal.
