It was widely reported that Truss objected to the King’s plans during an audience last month. But speaking to Nick Ferrari, she refused to reveal the ‘contents of the discussion’.

She told Nick: “The discussion between the prime minister and the king are part of a constitution, they are part of the way we work, and they are entirely confidential.

So, however many times you ask me Nick I’m not going to tell you what we discussed.”
