The party took place on April 16, 2021 in the garden of Downing Street: “reprehensible behavior” s
These are days in which he does nothing but apologize Boris Johnson . The British premier, in fact, through his spokesperson, officially apologized to Buckingham Palace for the two parties in Downing Street the evening before Funeral of Prince Philip , on April 16, 2021, or during a period of national mourning. Three days ago, however, on Tuesday 12, the premier also apologized in front of the parliament for the party organized in Downing Street Garden in full lockdown, this occurred in May 2020: “I implicitly believed that it was a business event,” he said in his speech in Westminster, arousing laughter among the deputies. The partygate that is overwhelming the head of the British government and his credibility seems endless.
In this last note of apology presented to the queen, it is not specified whether the premier was present or not at the parties on April 16 (one was the farewell of his head of communication, James Slack), but it still speaks of “deplorable behavior »: The following day, the whole world would see Elisabetta sitting alone in the chapel of San Giorgio, in front of her husband’s coffin. It was not in lockdown this time, but it was still days of mourning for the country. And the little parties in the garden, according to the many rumors circulated, were anything but informal business meetings: alcohol and happiness circulated in abundance, so much so that one of the “guests” would have broken the swing of the prime minister’s son in the garden.
Surely the queen and her close family members will have found nothing to laugh about, unlike the deputies of Westminster: these days Elizabeth, Prince Charles and his nephew William have to manage a bigger internal grain than the awkward apologies of a declining premier of popularity: the American investigation concerning Prince Andrew and the allegations of rape of minors.
