The beginning of the end for the EU.
Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger Article 50 on March 29, formally starting the process for Britain to leave the European Union.
May will write to the EU next Wednesday announcing the beginning of Brexit. It will start the clock on a two-year countdown to Brexit and allow negotiations between London and Brussels to begin.
Tim Barrow, the UK’s ambassador to the EU, formally notified the office of the EU Council President Donald Tusk on Monday morning, the Telegraph reports.
The PM’s official spokesman said: “We said it would be by the end of March and thought it would be helpful to say when it will happen.
“We want negotiations to start promptly. We expect it will be a two-year process and we are confident that is what we will achieve. So Britain will exit the EU on 29 March 2019.”
