The United Kingdom has woken to a new Prime Minister this morning, with Theresa May officially taking over from David Cameron.
Speaking outside No. 10 Downing St, May praised the former Prime Minister before expressing her eagerness to forge a positive new future for Britain.
“David Cameron has led a one-nation government and it is in that spirit that I also plan to lead,” she said.

“We will rise to the challenge. As we leave the European Union we will forge a bold new positive role for ourselves in the world, and we will make Britain a country that works not for a privileged few, but for every one of us.”
Mr Cameron, who stood down from the top job after Britains voted out of the EU, spoke briefly alongside his family, stating that serving as Prime Minister was the greatest honor of his life.
“It has been the greatest honor of my life to serve our country as prime minister over these last six years, and to serve as leader of my party for almost 11 years,” he said.
“And as we leave for the last time, my only wish is continued success for this great country that I love so very much.”
