The Prime Minister is free to officially notify the EU that the UK intends to leave after the Queen granted the Brexit bill royal assent.
Following a turbulent passage through both houses and a drawn out court battle, Theresa May is expected to take the historic step of starting the process of leaving the 40-year union.
Speaking in the House of Commons at the beginning of the week, Mrs May said she would trigger Article 50 "before the end of the month" and it is expected she will do so in the last week of March.
The Prime Minister has described it as a "defining moment" for the country but the negotiations that will take place with the EU over the next two years promise to be bitter and bloody.
