Theresa May leaves House of Commons in stitches with touching speech about time spent with Queen

Theresa May leaves House of Commons in stitches with touching speech about time spent with Queen

The former Prime Minister of Britain gave a heartfelt speech about her memories shared with The Queen

The former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party has left the House of Commons howling after a heartfelt speech about the late Queen Elizabeth. Watch below:

Her Royal Highness passed away yesterday (8 September) at her country estate in Balmoral, Scotland, surrounded by family members.

Theresa May began introducing the late monarch to the House of Commons, stating: "She knew many of the world leaders."

"In some cases," the former Prime Minister continued, "she knew their fathers."

The hall erupted in a buzz of laughter as May proceeded with her speech.

"She was a wise and a great judge of people," was just one of the many accolades May attributed to The Queen.


"She didn't always expect to be the centre of attention. She was quite happy, sometimes, to sit playing her form of patience while others were mingling around her chatting to each other."

May then began to relay an anecdote about one of her husband's dreams.

"He dreamt that he was sitting in the back of a Range Rover being driven around Balmoral estate," she began.

"And his driver was Her Majesty The Queen and the passenger seat was occupied by his wife, the Prime Minister," May continued as more politicians broke out into laughter.

She concluded: "And then he woke up and realised it was reality."

Recounting another anecdote from the time the pair spent together, May began giving the House details about a picnic at Balmoral.

“I picked up some cheese, put it on a plate and was transferring it to a table.

“The cheese then fell on the floor,” she said.

“I had a split-second decision to make,” May revealed as the crowd began to sense where the story was going.

“I picked up the cheese, put it on the plate and put it on the table,” she added, “and I turned round to see my every move had been watched very carefully by Her Majesty The Queen.

“I looked at her, she looked at me and she just smiled."

“And the cheese,” May concluded, “remained on the table.”

"This is indeed a sad day, but it is also a day of celebration of a life well spent in the service of others."
