BORIS Johnson is having to scrap his weekend with the Queen in Balmoral to handle the Brexit crisis instead.
The PM was due to arrive at Her Majesty’s Scottish castle retreat tomorrow for the Prime Minister’s traditional three day early Autumn stay.
Buckingham Palace officials were “very understanding” about the change of plans because of the ongoing Westminster turmoil, a No10 source revealed.
But Mr Johnson is now only expected to have dinner with the 93 year-old monarch on Friday night.
He will then rush back to Downing Street on Saturday morning after staying the night.
The Aberdeenshire trip was to be Mr Johnson’s first long stay with the Queen since taking office in July.
His girlfriend Carrie Symonds is accompanying him on the annual September commute made by all Prime Ministers to Her Majesty on her long holiday
Abandoning the full weekend is a big embarrassment for the PM.

“He will have an audience of Her Majesty on Friday followed by dinner, before returning to London on Saturday.”
A Government source added: “This is a very busy time for the Government”.
