Boris Johnson has left his Downing Street residence to ask Queen Elizabeth for formal permission to form a new government.
Johnson's Conservative Party won an unexpectedly large majority in Thursday's national election, reports the BBC.
Five months ago Johnson came to be invited by the Queen to form his first government. He is the 14th prime minister of her reign, and back again.
The meeting is expected to be a short audience.
Boris Johnson will ask for the queen's permission formally to form a government; and explain to the queen how he plans overcome the divisions of this more than usually divisive election campaign.
