THERESA May’s turbulent time as Prime Minister finally came to an end earlier this year after an emotional resignation.

She was forced to quit after her Brexit deal failed to win the backing of MPs – but what has she been up to since?

Where is Theresa May now?

Mrs May announced she was resigning as Prime Minister in a tearful statement outside 10 Downing Street on May 24.

She remained leader of the Conservative Party until June 7 and as a lame duck Prime Minister until July 23 when Boris Johnson took over.

Since then she has largely kept out of the public eye and kept silent about her successor’s handling of Brexit.

In her final days as PM, the cricket lover welcomed England’s victorious World Cup winning team to Downing Street.

She used her first day as a backbench MP to take a trip to Lord’s to see England play a Ireland in a one-off test match.

Mrs May was pictured looking happy and relaxed on her first day without the weight of Brexit on her shoulders.

The ex-Prime Minister seemed to be enjoying herself as a waiter handed her a cold drink.

Allies believe she will continue to campaign on areas she has championed during her time as PM – from modern slavery to domestic abuse and closing the gender pay gap.

Is she still a Conservative MP?

Mrs May has been the MP for Maidenhead in Berkshire for the last 22 years.

Despite the ignominy with which her time as Prime Minister ended, she remains popular with her constituents.

At the last general election, she polled 64.8 per cent of the vote.

Constituent Christine Harding, 68, told the BBC that Mrs May had supported schools, clubs and the elderly.

“She is fantastic, she involves herself in a lot of local things,” she said.

There had been speculation as to whether she would also be leaving the House of Commons but during a session of Prime Minister’s Questions in June, she confirmed that was not her intention.

“I will indeed be staying here as I will continue to be the Member of Parliament for my constituency,” she said.
