Earlier on Wednesday, outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May issued a parting shot to opposition Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, using her final weekly parliamentary question session to suggest he follow her lead and quit his job.
May, who officially handed over to her successor Johnson on Wednesday, stepped down after just over three years in the job having failed to deliver Britain's exit from the European Union.
In her final speech outside No.10 Downing, May congratulated Johnson wishing him and the government every good fortune in the months and years ahead. May then met with Queen Elizabeth to tender her resignation.
Following his audience with Queen Elizabeth and his formal appointment, Johnson made his first speech outside No.10 Downing Street as prime minister.
Johnson promised to lead Britain out of the European Union on Oct.31 with "no ifs or buts" and warned that if the European Union refused to negotiate then there would be a no-deal Brexit.
