UK government apologizes to Queen for 'suitcase of wine' parties on eve of Prince Philip's funeral

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office has apologised to Queen Elizabeth II after it was revealed that Downing Street staff held lockdown-breaching parties on the eve of her husband's
funeral.

"It's deeply regrettable that this took place at a time of national mourning and Number 10 has apologised to the palace," a spokesman told reporters Friday after new claims Johnson's staff held parties the night before Prince Philip's funeral.
