After three years of failed proposals for a Brexit deal, Prime Minister of the U.K., Theresa May has resigned.

“It is and will always remain a matter of deep regret to me that I have not been able to deliver Brexit,” said May, standing at a podium in the sunlight outside No. 10 Downing St. in London.
Intentionally or otherwise, May was summing up her legacy as most here see it today. She is the prime minister who spent nearly three years trying to honor the result of the landmark 2016 Brexit referendum and, despite a relentless effort, failed.
In the summer of 2016, May thought she was the right person at the right moment. British voters had stunned the world and voted to take the U.K. out of the European Union. Then-Prime Minister David Cameron, who had called the vote for political reasons — never thinking it would actually pass — resigned.
