A "gold triangle" of advisers is working to protect British Queen Elizabeth II in the midst of a constitutional crisis in Brexit.

Britain burst into screams of protests, lawsuits and "constitutional contempt" claims following Prime Minister Boris Johnson's decision to extend parliament and seek a new Queen's speech on October 14, just two weeks before the deadline for Brexit.

Labor MP Kate Osamor tweeted "The. Queen. Did. Do not save. We ". After the monarch's move to accept Mr. Johnson's request.

"The queen should see what happened to her cousin Tino, former king of Greece, when a right-wing coup is enabled!" He said on Twitter. "The monarchy has been abolished!"

Following is a "golden triangle" of advisors including the Queen's private secretary, Edward Young, the British secretary of cabinet, Sir Mark Sedwill and the prime minister's chief private secretary, Peter Hill, who worked to ensure that the monarch 93enne remains above the political fray.

The constitutional role of the Queen means that she supervises the appointment of new prime ministers but never takes the political parties. However, the prospect of a no-confidence vote in Mr. Johnson and the plots of pro-remaining MPs to form a guardian government led to fears that the queen might be forced to intervene to appoint a leader.

"The royal family wants to manage it so as not to damage the current long-term position of the crown," a real source said recently The Sunday Times.

Earlier this month, a real source also reported to the newspaper that the Queen had shown "disappointment with the current political class and its inability to govern properly".

"He expressed his exasperation and frustration at the quality of our political leadership and that the frustration will only grow," said a source The Sunday Times

OPPOSITION SUPPORTS

On Thursday, Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson left her role following Johnson's decision, citing maternity pressures and the Brexit conflict.

A petition a stop the extension of parliament got over 1.4 million signatures and business woman Gina Miller presented a legal challenge to stop the "cynical and cowardly" plan. A separate legal challenge for Brexit is already making headway in the Scottish courts.

The protesters took to the streets around the parliament on Wednesday, shouting "close our parliament, we close the streets". Small gatherings took place in other cities of the United Kingdom while 25 bishops published a letter detailing their fears of the "economic shocks" Brexit deal would bring.

Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn said that Johnson's plan was a "break and grab" democracy and the British leader wanted to run "headlong into Donald Trump's arms".

DEADLINE FOR HALLOWEEN EXPIRATION

On Wednesday the Queen agreed to open a new session of parliament on October 14, apparently to reflect the legislative agenda of the new government.

Johnson stated that the decision to seek a new session is based on restoring the agenda to focus on health and crime and on concluding the current long session.

However, while this has had precedents, the five-week suspension has seen critics launch the move as a cynical ploy to run down time against pro-remaining MPs who want to stop a Brexit without any problems.

The Financial Times nicknamed "Constitutional Chicanery"To" oppose a parliament that knows how to have the majority against its chosen policy ".

Even the members of Johnson's party blew the decision, including parliamentarian Ken Clarke who said it was "scandalous", "unconstitutional" and "designed to frustrate Brexit".

Former Chancellor Philip Hammond stated that it was a "constitutional outrage".

British House of Commons leader Jacob Rees-Mogg bothered critics on Thursday saying the protesters were "fake".

"The floss of indignation we have had in the last 24 hours, which I think is almost completely confusing, comes from people who never wanted to leave the European Union," he said BBC Radio 4 Today program.

There are only nine weeks left of Britain's exit from the European Union on 31 October, with an agreement that seems increasingly likely.

Johnson insisted that Irish support was removed from the withdrawal agreement previously negotiated with the EU by Theresa May's government. However, EU leaders have stated that it must remain.

The EU's chief negotiator Michael Barnier said it was the "duty and responsibility" of the EU to protect the interests of its citizens and companies, in what some tacitly considered to be the recognition of a non-existent Brexit.

Members will return from their summer holidays on September 3, when Mr. Johnson could face a no-confidence motion. The queen has decided to suspend parliament from 9 to 12 September and from September 14 will be the party conference season, ensuring that the deputies will have limited time to formulate legislation to block the exit without agreements.

Parliament will now meet on October 14th for the Queen's speech. On 17-18 October Mr Johnson will visit the European Council for final negotiations before the October 31 deadline.
