Last night, in a historic moment, the UK officially left the European Union at 11pm. Of course, not everyone voted for Brexit, including Queen’s Brian May. Nevertheless, the 72-year-old has called on fans to make the most of it in a positive message he posted on social media.
May wrote on Instagram: “Well, it’s ‘That Day’ back in the UK.
“Viewed from out here in the wide world, it’s even harder to understand how even 37 per cent of Britons could have thought this was a good idea.
“But it’s all water under the bridge now - and we now need to get on with making the best of it.
“Even if you get lemons you can make lemonade - right ? ! Onwards !!!”

The Queen guitarist made similar optimistic comments about Boris Johnson’s victory in the 2019 general election.
May wrote last year: “Yes - I see many of your comments - and it’s obvious there are hundreds of thousands of us who are sad that our close ties with Europe are now certain to be broken.
“Many of us will continue to see BREXIT as a tragic mistake.
“But I believe that this election result is a wake-up call for us.”
