UK's Downing Street apologises to Buckingham Palace for lockdown parties

UK's Downing Street has apologised to Buckingham Palace for two staff parties in Number 10 the night before Prince Philip's funeral.
 
The gatherings, first reported by The Telegraph newspaper, took place on April 16, 2021 and went on until the early hours.
 
The Prime Minister's spokesman said it was deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning.
 
Boris Johnson was not at either party - but he faces questions over alleged COVID-19 rule-breaking at Number 10.
 
The latest party revelations led to a backlash from opposition parties, who contrasted the behaviour of Number 10 staff with pictures of the Queen sitting alone at the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral, due to COVID-19 restrictions.
