A source on Downing Street said Johnson & # 39; contacted the Queen as soon as possible to say how sorry he was & # 39; after the ruling on Tuesday, the Sunday Times.

Earlier this week, 11 the Supreme Court called the prorogation of parliament by the prime minister a & # 39; serious & # 39; threat to democracy.

In a clear verdict, President Lady Hale said the decision to ask the Queen to close the Commons for five weeks & # 39; illegal, void and ineffective & # 39; used to be.

The ruling allegedly led to a disruption of the relationship between the palace, which & # 39; are unimpressed & # 39 ;, and Downing Street.

A Whitehall source said: & [39] They [the royal family] are not impressed with what is going on – at the very highest levels of the family. & # 39;

The prime minister would now be just as suspicious as David Cameron, whose memoirs released this week allegedly led to & # 39; dissatisfaction & # 39; in Buckingham Palace.

His autobiography revealed that Mr. Cameron contacted palace officials in 2014, suggesting that Her Majesty & # 39; could raise an eyebrow & # 39; in the short-fought referendum campaign, after a poll predicting a yes win & # 39; in a panic & # 39 ;.

Palace sources criticized the revelation and claimed breaches of confidentiality that could harm the relationship between both parties.

A source revealed to BBC News & it serves the interests of nobody & # 39; for the Prime Minister and Queen's conversations to be public because it & # 39; makes it very difficult for the relationship to thrive & # 39 ;.

A palace source also said to the Sunday Times: & # 39; It is hard to say who they are most involved with, Cameron or Boris. & # 39;

It was also claimed that Mr. Johnson, along with Mr. Cameron, will not be in the race for the Order of the Garter, the oldest order of knighthood in the honors system, because of the prorogation.

A spokesperson for number 10 had already confirmed that the prime minister had spoken with the prince after Tuesday's verdict, but it was not known if he had said sorry.

Johnson not only spoke to the queen, but also held a telephone meeting with his cabinet, which lasted about 30 minutes.

He told colleagues that he did not agree with the ruling but respected the independence of the judiciary.

The court decision came while Johnson was in New York for a UN climate summit where he met US President Trump and Iranian leader Hassan Rouhani.

Downing Street insisted that there was no question of Johnson stepping aside, with a source saying: & # 39; The Prime Minister will not resign after the verdict. & # 39;

Johnson told reporters on Tuesday: “I have the utmost respect for our judiciary, I don't think this was the right decision, I think the prorogation has been used for centuries without these kinds of challenges.

& # 39; I think the most important thing is to start and deliver Brexit on October 31, and the plaintiffs in this case are clearly determined to frustrate and stop that.

& # 39; I think it would be very unfortunate if Parliament would make that objective that people want harder, but we will continue. & # 39;

Former Prime Minister John Major later demanded an & # 39; unconditional apology & # 39; by Mr Johnson after the Supreme Court had condemned his illegal prorogation.

The Tory, which was part of the successful legal challenge, launched an extraordinary attack on its successor in the aftermath of the ruling.

Sir Major warned that he did not have & # 39; pleasure & # 39; experienced the victory of the court and warned: & # 39; no prime minister may ever treat the monarch or parliament again in this way. & # 39;

Mr. Major, who has received the Order of the Queen's Garter, would be close to Her Majesty.

A source told the Sunday Times that the politician, 76, would not have been involved in the case if the royal family had not approved it.
