208 women MPs, a proud record for UK Parliament

Downing Street said Chancellor Philip Hammond, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon would remain in post.

"I am backing Theresa May".

And 57 per cent of those who backed Jeremy Corbyn's party said they made their decision in the last month - indicating the poorly regarded Conservative campaign was a factor in their decision.

Stressing that her party had won the maximum votes and emerged as the single largest party, she claimed that only the Tories can provide the "certainty" needed to guide the country through crucial Brexit talks that begins with the European Union on June 19.

And the Brexit talks are due to start in 10 days time.

May now risks more opposition to her Brexit plans from inside and outside her party, though a party source said leading the Conservatives was seen as too much of a poisoned chalice for her to face an immediate challenge. "If she has an ounce of self-respect, she will resign", said Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron, while Conservative M.P. and former minister Anna Soubry said May "is in a very hard place... she now has to obviously consider her position". But the ballot-box humiliation has seriously - and possibly mortally - wounded her leadership just as Britain is about to begin complex exit talks with the European Union. Some say her failure means the government must now take a more flexible approach to the divorce. "As I reflect on the results, I will reflect on what we need to do in the future to take the party forward".

Mrs May has reached a "confidence and supply" agreement with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP).

Ruth Davidson, leader of Conservatives in Scotland, where the party did well, said the results showed the Conservatives should prioritise good trade relations with the EU.

Anand Menon, professor of politics at King's College London, said her lack of a parliamentary majority made it far more likely that Britain would leave the European Union without a deal.

The Tories have said they will form a government with the support of the DUP.

"The Conservatives have not yet broken the British system of democracy, but through their hubris and incompetence they have managed to make a mockery of it", it said in an editorial. It aligns London more closely with the pro-British side in the divided province, where a power-sharing government with Irish nationalists is suspended. By Saturday, there were reports that she might even be ousted as prime minister by her party.

Typically the British government tries to act as an honest broker between Republicans and Unionists.

The Queen's Speech is the address that the Queen reads out on the occasion of the State Opening of Parliament in front of MPs and peers.

He plans to use the Queen's Speech as his first opportunity to topple the floundering PM. It is also not known if the other parties will be determined to obstruct her path, and come together to let Mr Corbyn - known to be on the left wing of Labour - lead a new government.

"I'm never going to give in arguing for what I believe is a pathway to a majority Labour government", he added. "This is still on".

With the DUP providing the Conservatives a narrow, but crucial, majority in Parliament, it could have an outsized influence.

Stormy clouds surround Big Ben in Westminster, central London, Britain, June 9, 2017. However, no party received the absolute majority of seats in parliament and the election has resulted in a hung parliament.

Instead, her election gamble has failed and she and her Conservative party have been weakened, with many on Friday questioning May's future as prime minister.

Foster, who led her party to 10 seats, was loathe to say her party would enter into a formal coalition - suggesting uncertainty in the weeks ahead.
