By September 2022, Liz Truss had beaten Rishi Sunak in the Tory leadership race, and by October, a lettuce had beaten Liz Truss.
She became the UK’s shortest-serving Prime Minister - lasting just 45 days in office.
Two days after Truss asked the Queen’s permission to form a government, Britain’s longest-reigning monarch died.
