    – Winston Churchill: The Queen had a good relationship with Churchill, who was the first prime minister to retire during her reign.

    – Anthony Eden: The Queen had a good relationship with Eden, but his handling of the Suez Crisis concerned her.

    – Alec Douglas-Home: Douglas-Home had a close relationship with the Queen and helped her name royal horses.

    – Harold Wilson: Wilson was the first Labour Party prime minister to serve the Queen. They had a strong relationship despite fears that it would be problematic due to Wilson’s socialist leanings.

    – Edward Heath: The Queen and Heath did not have a close relationship due to his pro-Europe stance.

    – James Callaghan: Callaghan was a devoted monarchist and had a strong relationship with the Queen.

    – Margaret Thatcher: Thatcher and the Queen respected each other but were not close. They clashed over Thatcher’s handling of certain issues.

    – Theresa May: May remarked on how well-versed the Queen was with current issues.

    – Boris Johnson: Johnson broke the cardinal rule of revealing details of his conversation with the Queen, causing controversy.

    – Liz Truss: Truss was appointed as the UK’s prime minister two days before the Queen’s death.
