A newly released poll suggests that 62% of people think Boris Johnson should apologise to The Queen after he unlawfully asked Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament.

In a poll conducted by Survation for the Daily Mail, 62% of people surveyed said the Prime Minister should say sorry to the monarch following the Supreme Court judgment on Wednesday.

27% of respondents said the PM does not need to apologise to The Queen, with another 10% saying they didn’t know.

1,011 people were surveyed by Survation, with younger people being more likely to demand the PM apologises.

The Prime Minister has repeatedly refused to say if he has apologised to The Queen over the unlawful prorogation of Parliament.

However, it is known that Mr Johnson spoke to Her Majesty over the telephone on Wednesday afternoon after the Supreme Court judgment was revealed.

What The Queen said to her 14th Prime Minister us unknown.

The Queen is currently residing at Balmoral Castle. She is expected to return to London within the next few weeks.

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court unanimously found that the government had acted unlawfully in the suspension of Parliament, with The Queen being misled.

Delivering her verdict, President of the Supreme Court, Lady Hale. said: “The decision to advise Her Majesty to prorogue Parliament was unlawful because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without reasonable justification.”

Senior politicians have now called for the Prime Minister to resign, including Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson.
