Members of staff working for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office at No. 10 Downing Street staged a party last year amid a full lobby and on the eve of Prince Philip's funeral, The Telegraph reported on Thursday.
Councilors and public officials met to celebrate the departure of two members of the prime minister's team, Communications Director James Slack and one of Boris Johnson's personal photographers, the conservative newspaper said.
The new revelations come as the British prime minister struggles to stay afloat after apologizing for attending another Downing Street party in the midst of 2020 again, saying he believed it was for a business meeting.
The revelation on Downing Street, which is now being revealed, took place, according to the Telegraph, on the eve of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth's husband, at a time when the country was in a period of national mourning.
The images of the queen sitting alone in the front row of the church at the funeral of Prince Philip due to restrictions associated with COVID-19 they then symbolized the strictness of the lockdown that applied in the United Kingdom.
