Theresa May officially becomes Britianâ€™s Prime Minister and immediately made a bold statement by appointing Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary.
Mrs May set to work on Wednesday evening by making several Cabinet appointments, including replacing George Osborne with Philip Hammond as Chancellor.
Amber Rudd took Mrs Mayâ€™s old position as Home Secretary, while Michael Fallon was kept on as Defence Secretary.
David Davis took on the new brief of Minister for Brexit.Â After her formal appointment by the Queen, Mrs May promised to lead a â€œone-nationâ€ government dedicated to social justice and making â€œBritain a country that works for everyoneâ€.
Alluding to the tough negotiations that lie ahead over Britainâ€™s exit from the European Union, she said, â€œwe face a time of great national changeâ€.
But she said Britain would â€œrise to the challengeâ€ and forge â€œa bold new positive roleâ€ in the world.
