Many spotted a large £500 Dyson air conditioning fan sitting in front of the fireplace.

It’s hardly surprising the Queen has the fan considering the scorching heat the UK has been experiencing this week.

But fans were quick to share their thoughts on the very modern addition to the Palace.

One person said on Twitter: “Love how when they showed the picture of #BorisJohnson meeting the Queen, the first thing my mum noticed was that she’d got a dyson fan.”

Another wrote: “Love the fact that the Queen has a Dyson fan to attempt to keep her cool!”

A third added: “Oh my gosh the Queen got a Dyson fan I need to get one!!!!”

Others were also asking questions about the Queen’s handbag.

Despite Her Majesty carrying a bag with her wherever she goes, some people were baffled as to why she needed a bag on this occasion as the meeting took place at her home.

One person said: “Does the Queen walk around the house carrying a handbag?”

Another wrote: “Why does the Queen have her handbag in her own house where is she going?” while a third added: “Why has the Queen got her handbag on her arm in her own house?”

On Tuesday, Mr Johnson was voted the next Conservative Party leader and Britain’s next Prime Minister.

Mr Johnson was then officially appointed the role minutes after Theresa May gave her resignation to Her Majesty on Wednesday afternoon.

The Conservative MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip beat out current Foreign Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, in a two-man leadership battle voted for by around 160,000 Tory party members.

It was announced in the Queen Elizabeth II Centre in London that Mr Hunt got 46,656 votes, and Mr Johnson got 92,153 votes with a 87.4% turnout.
