Britain’s Queen Elizabeth has granted royal assent to Prime Minister Theresa May’s flagship Brexit legislation today.

The step has ended the months of debate over the legislation that will formally end the country’s European Union membership.

The House of Commons speaker John Bercow said the EU withdrawal bill, passed by both houses of parliament last week, had been signed into law by the monarch.

Meanwhile, the European Union official has said that EU’s default market access for foreign financial firms will not be eased for Britain after Brexit.
