UNITED KINGDOM: Ursula von der Leyen, European Commission President is meeting Rishi Sunak today in order to sign a historic post-Brexit deal. He would be joining King Charles at Windsor Castle after that.

The long-running row over the Northern Ireland Protocol would finally get resolved with the Windsor agreement, irrespective of DUP and Tory hardliners’ support.

Sunak will hold a joint press conference with the EU this afternoon before he goes to the Commons to deliver a statement if the text is agreed at protocol talks in Windsor.

The Tory Eurosceptics and Unionists in the DUP were irritated by Von der Leyen’s meeting with the King, which was originally scheduled for Saturday but was cancelled for various reasons.

Rees Mogg, a Sunak supporter and Conservative Party member, stated, “Out of resentment, Farage is assaulting the monarch. Some people would rather that we and the EU disagree.”

“According to Buckingham Palace, the government supported the King’s meeting. The government advises the King to meet any world leaders who are in Britain, and the King is happy to do so”, Mogg added.

John Major last night warned against the “neuralgic” partners of Boris Johnson endeavouring to wreck the accord. The DUP would accept the agreement. The supporters for this evening will be attending the London dinner, during which the rationale for accepting the deal will be explained.

Von der Leyen’s audience with the King was not part of the protocol talks as reinstated by the EU. This meeting happened exclusively between the EU boss and Sunak, during which the former mentioned that she was “looking forward to turning a page and opening a new chapter with our partner and friend.”
