Theresa May has become Britain's new prime minister Wednesday after meeting with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
May, the former home secretary, is Britain’s second female prime minister after Margaret Thatcher, who ran the country between 1979 and 1990. She is expected to announce members of her cabinet Wednesday evening.
In a speech read in front of No. 10 Downing Street, May pledged to battle 'social injustice' and create a 'country that works for everyone.'
In an appeal to those families struggling, Mrs May said: 'We will listen not to the mighty, but you.'
Earlier on in the day, David Cameron said his final goodbye as he flanked his wife and three children out of Downing Street for the last time as Prime Minister.
Paying tribute to his family, the outgone PM said: ‘I want to thank my children – Nancy, Elwen and Florence, for whom Downing Street has been a lovely home over this last six years. They sometimes kick the red boxes full of work. Florence – you once climbed into one before a foreign trip and said: “Take me with you.”
