Boris Johnson girlfriend: Will Carrie Symonds meet the Queen after Boris snub? | Politics | News

Prime Minister Boris Johnson was due to arrive at Balmoral tomorrow for a three day stay, as is traditional for a Prime Minister in early Autumn. However, after the shambles that have taken place in Westminster over the last few days, Mr Johnson has had to cancel his visit. Instead, the Prime Minister is expected to have dinner with the Queen on Friday night.


Mr Johnson’s girlfriend, Carrie Symmonds, is expected to be accompanying the Prime Minister on his visit on Friday night, although now she may not be getting as much time in the Queen’s company as she once thought.

According to reports from The Sun, Mr Johnson has cancelled his visit to make more time to deal with the current political crisis.

A source told the publication Buckingham Palace were “very understanding” about the change of plans.

The visit to Balmoral was set to be the Prime Minister’s first visit to the royal Aberdeenshire estate.

Ms Symonds was previously expected to meet the Queen for a barbecue this weekend.

A No10 spokesman told The Sun: “The PM has accepted Her Majesty Queen’s invitation to visit Balmoral.

“He will have an audience of Her Majesty on Friday followed by dinner, before returning to London on Saturday.”

Cancelling the weekend visit to the Queen’s Aberdeen retreat could be seen as a huge embarrassment for the Prime Minister.

The Queen traditionally invites the Prime Minister to join her on her holidays at the beginning of September.

In another embarassment for the Prime Minister today, his own brother, Jo Johnson, quit both his role as Business Minister and MP for Orpington. 

He cited an “unresolvable tension” in his role as his reason for quitting.

Jo Johnson tweeted: “It’s been an honour to represent Orpington for 9 years & to serve as a minister under three PMs. 

“In recent weeks I’ve been torn between family loyalty and the national interest – it’s an unresolvable tension & time for others to take on my roles as MP & Minister. #overandout” 

The Tory whip was also removed from 21 MPs this week who supported a bill to prevent a no-deal Brexit.
