David Cameron will take to the dispatch box for Prime Minister's Questions for the final time as leader of the United Kingdom today (13 July) before telling the Queen he has resigned.

Cameron will go head-to-head with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – fresh from securing his place on the party's leadership ballot – for the last time as the curtain falls on his six-year premiership.

In total Cameron would have spent 11 years on either side of the lectern in the House of Commons as leader of the opposition, which he became in 2005, and prime minister, the post he has held since 2010.

Home secretary Theresa May has already been declared the new leader of the Conservatives after energy and former City minister Andrea Leadsom withdrew from the contest to succeed Cameron.

May's accession came after one of the most tumultuous periods in British political history, the catalyst of which was when the country voted to leave the European Union on 23 June, a result Cameron decided brought an end to his time in Number 10.

The prime minister, who will move out of Downing Street today, chaired his final Cabinet meeting yesterday where Conservative MPs paid tribute to Cameron.

Following PMQs, Cameron will make the short journey from Downing Street to Buckingham Palace where he will formally tender his resignation to the Queen.

In contrast to Tony Blair's final PMQs in 2007, Cameron will receive a warm send-off from his party but will likely draw a less than luke-warm reception from the Labour benches.

As for Labour, today's session gives Corbyn the chance to send Cameron packing with a knife in his chest as well as drum up his own support ahead of the party's leadership contest.

Former shadow business secretary Angela Eagle announced she would challenge Corbyn to "save the party" while ex-shadow cabinet minister Owen Smith said he would stand in the contest to give Labour a "credible" leader.

As for Cameron himself, he can look forward to life as a backbencher, no more being seen to fly with easyJet and all the chillaxing his Witney constituents will allow him.
