Rishi Sunak has resigned as Prime Minister at Buckingham Palace in a departure audience with King Charles following a crushing defeat in the general election.

Sunak succeeded Liz Truss as Prime Minister after her disastrous tenure of just 45 days.

He said in his resignation speech: “To the country, I would like to say first and foremost, I am sorry.

“I have given this job my all, but you have sent a clear signal that the Government of the United Kingdom must change. And yours is the only judgment that matters.

“I have heard your anger, your disappointment, and I take responsibility for this loss.”
