BBC and ITV Reporters Fumble as Keir Starmer Arrives at Buckingham Palace to Meet King Charles for Prime Minister Installation

In a comical twist today, BBC and ITV presenters found themselves in an embarrassing situation as they mistakenly announced that incoming Prime Minister Keir Starmer was headed “to meet the Queen.”

This slip-up occurred just as Starmer arrived at Buckingham Palace to be formally installed as Britain’s 58th PM by King Charles.

Viewers tuning in to witness this historic moment quickly caught wind of the blunder, taking to social media to poke fun at the sleep-deprived reporters.

Comments flooded in, teasing the broadcasters for their gaffe. One viewer quipped, “Big mistake on ITV there saying Starmer is about to meet the Queen.”

Another joked about BBC’s Laura Kuenssberg, stating, “‘BBC saying Starmer will visit the Queen – wow that’s morbid,’ a third joked.”

Following his audience with King Charles at Buckingham Palace, Sir Keir Starmer has been tasked with forming a new Government.

This marks a significant moment as he becomes only the second Prime Minister to be formally installed by the 75-year-old King since the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth, in 2022.

Remembering Queen Elizabeth II’s Legacy

During her remarkable 70-year reign, Queen Elizabeth II worked alongside 15 different Prime Ministers.

Her final appointment was Liz Truss, just days before her passing.

A poignant moment captured during Truss’ appointment shows the Queen, leaning on a walking stick, shaking hands with the incoming PM.

According to Press Association photographer Jane Burrow, the Queen appeared “very happy” during this final public photograph.

The New Era: King Charles’s Prime Ministers

Since assuming the throne, King Charles has swiftly appointed two Prime Ministers.

Following Liz Truss, Rishi Sunak became Britain’s youngest leader at 42 years old.

This transition in leadership highlights a new chapter in British governance under King Charles’s reign.
