Prime Minister David Cameron announced Monday he will tender his resignation as leader of the Conservative party, and was caught singing joyfully after the announcement while returning to the prime minister’s residence at Number 10 Downing Street.
Home Secretary Theresa May will succeed him as prime minister, and will be the first female U.K. leader since Margaret Thatcher.
Cameron announced he would step down in the days following the U.K. vote to leave the EU, citing the need for fresh leadership in the complex negotiations required after the formal process is initiated. Cameron, along with several allies in the Conservative party, supported May’s bid for leadership.
