June 9, 2017 - May visits Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, an early step in the process of forming a new coalition government.

July 6, 2018 - At the end of a cabinet meeting on Brexit, May announces a proposal that aims to preserve free trade with the European Union. In return for free access to its biggest export market, the UK would commit to following EU rules and regulations on goods and accept a limited role for its highest court. Two cabinet members - Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson - resign days later in protest to the plan.
