An interesting comment about the purpose of the visit:

https://www.theguardian.com/politics...08c2d1f80da89c
In the past prime ministers who wanted to hold a general election had to ask the Queen to dissolve parliament, and so a trip to Buckingham Palace was always part of the election ritual.

The Fixed-term Parliaments Act means that the timing of an election is no longer in the gift of the Queen. This election is happening because, in order to get round the FTPA, parliament passed legislation, the Early Parliamentary General Election Act 2019.

But since the passing of the FTPA prime ministers have continued to insist on driving up the Mall to the palace at the start of an election, as if they believe that voters wonít believe itís a real election unless they have seen the Queen somehow sanction it.
I wonder if the now anachronistic tradition will dissipate over time.
