    Queen Elizabeth II resignation of ritish Prime Minister David Cameron, according to a Buckingham Palace spokesperson.

    LONDON (Sputnik) — Queen Elizabeth II accepted British Prime Minister David Cameron's resignation, a Buckingham Palace spokesperson confirmed Wednesday.

    Cameron's televised arrival at the palace to tender his resignation was broadcast live on television. He is expected to continue to his now-former residence at Downing Street, where he will address the public with a short speech.

    Newly installed Conservative Party leader Theresa May will follow Cameron to the Buckingham Palace, where the Queen will instruct her with forming a cabinet. May will then arrive at Downing Street, where a ceremonial handing of the keys and a nuclear suitcase will take place.

    May is expected to name her key cabinet members by late Wednesday.
