David Cameron left the United Kingdom’s Parliament as prime minister for the last time Wednesday, before he travels to Buckingham Palace to offer his resignation to Queen Elizabeth II.
Cameron’s weekly taking of questions from members of Parliament at the House of Commons ended in a standing ovation from lawmakers.
“I will miss the roar of the crowd. I will miss the barbs of the opposition,” Cameron said. He announced his resignation after Britain voted to leave the 28-member European Union in a June 23 referendum. He had campaigned to remain in the EU.
Theresa May, who will become the new prime minister later Wednesday, was greeted with a huge cheer as she entered the House of Commons for prime minister’s questions.
“This morning I had meetings with ministerial colleagues and others, other than one meeting this afternoon with Her Majesty, the queen, the diary for the rest of my day is remarkably light,” Cameron said, to laughter from lawmakers.
Cameron is expected to make a final speech in Downing Street before heading the short distance to the palace to resign after six years as prime minister.
May, who was elected the leader of the ruling Conservative Party on Monday, will then head to the palace for an audience with the queen. She will be asked to form a government before traveling to Downing Street as prime minister. May, 59, became the sole candidate for the role when her rival, Andrea Leadsom, pulled out of the leadership race Monday.
May, the current home secretary, will be Britain’s second female prime minister after Margaret Thatcher, who ran the country between 1979 and 1990. She is expected to announce members of her cabinetWednesday evening.
“I came into Downing Street to confront our problems as a country and lead people through difficult decisions so that together we could reach better times,” Cameron told the Telegraph in an article published Wednesday.
He added: “As I leave today, I hope that people will see a stronger country, a thriving economy and more chances to get on in life.”
Cameron, 49, will be the youngest prime minister to leave office since the Earl of Rosebery in 1895.
