As the outgoing Prime Minister, Johnson has the right to ask King Charles III to bestow royal honors on whomever he deems fit. Burns is seen as a close ally of Johnson and previously served as Secretary of Commerce in his administration. Burns resigned from that position in 2020 after it was found that he had abused his position as an MP to intimidate someone. He returned to that position in September, after Liz Truss took over as the new prime minister.

Downing Street has not disclosed the serious misconduct that Burns may be guilty of. But the BBC reported that he was fired from his job as a driver and suspended from Parliament after witnesses saw him touch the thigh of a young man in a hotel bar on Monday night. The incident was said to have taken place at the Hyatt Regency Bar in Birmingham during a Conservative Party conference. Burns denies any allegations.
