  • More breaking news can be found hereThe official residence of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has apologized to Buckingham Palace for two lockdown parties on the eve of Queen consort Prince Philip’s funeral. “It is deeply regrettable that this has taken place at a time of national mourning,” Johnson’s spokesman said in London on Friday. Johnson had already emphasized this week that behavior at the seat of government must meet the highest standards. Downing Street also takes responsibility “for things we didn’t do right”. As the “Telegraph” reported, around 30 employees had been drinking and dancing at the office until late on April 16, 2021. At that time, strict distance rules applied because of the corona pandemic. Regulations forced the Queen to sit alone in the chapel at her Windsor residence the next day as her husband of 73 years was buried there. Johnson did not attend the celebrations, nor was he present at Downing Street. Prince Philip died on April 9, 2021, aged 99. A national mourning was held nationwide until his funeral on April 17.
