Boris Johnson is welcomed in 10 Downing Street by staff after meeting Queen Elizabeth. He took over from Theresa May at one of the most perilous junctures in post-World War Two British history - the United Kingdom is divided over Brexit and weakened by the three-year political crisis that has gripped it since a 2016 referendum vote to leave the bloc.Stefan Rousseau/Pool via REUTERS

Just hours after arriving in Downing Street, the new Conservative Prime Minister began work with one of the biggest culls of senior government jobs in recent British history, changing all of the main ministers.

Boris Johnson's girlfriend, Carrie Symonds, is seen outside Downing Street. When Johnson entered the famous black door of No. 10 Downing Street, he was the first for nearly half a century to do so unaccompanied by a spouse. Instead of walking through the door with him, his girlfriend Symonds, former head of communications for his Conservative Party, stood nearby with his staff - a sign of a colorful private life that arguably represents modern Britain better than the traditional picture. But Symonds' presence before the cameras, on the sidelines if not by his side, suggests things may slowly be changing.REUTERS/Toby Melville

Boris Johnson's girlfriend, Carrie Symonds, is seen outside Downing Street. If Symonds joins Johnson in his official residence, at 31 she will be the youngest partner of a prime minister in 173 years. By moving in together unmarried, they would be doing something that the vast majority of committed couples do in Britain these days - even if they would be the first to do so openly at No.10.REUTERS/Peter Nicholls
