Brexit block: Half a million sign petition demanding Boris Johnson not prorogue Parliament

THE QUEEN has approved the controversial request from the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend parliament from the middle of next month, essentially restricting MPs ability to block a no deal Brexit.

About Her Majesty The Queen

https://www.royal.uk/her-majesty-the-queen

The Queen has ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe. Her extraordinary reign has seen her travel more widely than any other monarch, undertaking many historic overseas visits. Known for her sense of duty and her devotion to a life of service, she has been an important figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during times of enormous social change.

Her Majesty continues to carry out a full programme of engagements, from visits to charities and schools, to hosting visiting Heads of State, to leading the nation in Remembrance and celebratory events - all supported by other members of the Royal Family.

The Queen sees public and voluntary service as one of the most important elements of her work. The Queen has links - as Royal Patron or President - with over 600 charities, military associations, professional bodies and public service organisations. These vary from well-established international charities to smaller bodies working in a specialist area or on a local basis only.

Her patronages and charities cover a wide range of issues, from opportunities for young people, to the preservation of wildlife and the environment. Having Her Majesty as Royal patron or president provides vital publicity for the work of these organisations, and allows their enormous achievements and contributions to society to be recognised.

Queen in CRISIS: How Boris Johnson’s decision leaves the Queen in major quandary

THE QUEEN has approved the controversial request from the Prime Minister Boris Johnson to suspend parliament from the middle of next month, essentially restricting MPs ability to block a no deal Brexit. But why has Mr Johnson’s decision potentially left the Queen in hot water?


Queen Elizabeth II has a number of important formal and ceremonial duties related to the government and parliament. One such duty is opening and closing each session of Parliament. Parliament is normally prorogued once a year for a short period of time, during which time all business essentially stops which means there are no debates, votes or laws made. After a two year Parliamentary session, Boris Johnson’s decision to prorogue Parliament next month has caused outrage from MPs across the country, but why has Mr Johnson’s decision left the Queen in a major quandary?
