Crowds gathered to celebrate the United Kingdom leaving the European Union in London’s Parliament Square on January 31, with some breaking into a rendition of the classic Queen song We Are the Champions.
Britain was due to leave the union at midnight in Brussels – 11 pm in London – marking an end to its 47 years of membership in what would become the European Union.
The exit began a transition period, scheduled to end on December 31, wherein Britain’s future relationship with the union is to be decided. Both pro- and anti-Brexit events were held across the UK to mark the occasion. Credit: Meghan Bobrowsky via Storyful
