Liz Truss becomes Britain’s next prime minister after meeting with Queen Elizabeth II, who asked her to form a new government as the country faces an acute cost-of-living crisis.

Truss, 47, takes office in the carefully choreographed ceremony with the monarch a day after the ruling Conservative Party announced that Truss was elected as its leader.

Her predecessor, Boris Johnson, formally stepped down during his own audience with the queen at her Balmoral estate in Scotland.
