The Tory leadership race will come to an end today as the new Conservative party leader and the UK's new Prime Minister is announced.

Either the former Chancellor or Foreign Secretary will replace the outgoing Boris Johnson who resigned in July following a wave of mass resignations of his cabinet and party.

Following the PM's resignation, the chairman of the 1922 committee Sir Graham Brady outlined a schedule for the leadership race from nominations to the final announcement.

Here is the schedule for the Tory leadership race, when a new PM will be appointed and what happens next.

What is the Tory leadership race schedule?

When nominations closed on July 12, eight candidates managed to secure enough votes to remain in the contest.

Over the following weeks, the hopefuls were whittled down over a first and second vote until two remained.

Between July and September, the Conservative party held 12 hustings across the UK with the final event taking place in London on August 31.

Voting closed at 5 pm on Friday, September 2 with any ballots received after that time not being counted.

Usually, the formal occasion is held at Buckingham Palace but in a break in tradition, both the incoming and outgoing leaders will take the trip to Her Majesty's summer home.

When meeting the monarch, the new prime minister will be invited to form a government and they will assume their duties shortly afterwards.

These duties include flying back to London to deliver their speech outside Downing Street, which is expected at around 4 pm.

The new leader will then announce their chosen Cabinet with a meeting of the new ministers expected ahead of the PM's first Prime Minister Questions on Wednesday.
