    Brexit: What happens now that Article 50 has been triggered?

    We all knew that it was coming, but that didn’t make it any easier to watch British Prime Minister Theresa May’s letter invoking Article 50 be delivered. The letter starts a two-year process through which the UK’s exit from the EU will take place. One thing is certain: the next two years will be quite eventful!

    We have broken the Brexit timeline down into five stages: the triggering of Article 50, preparations for the negotiations, the negotiations taking place, voting on the final deal (in the UK Parliament, European Parliament and European Council) and the UK’s eventual exit, with or without a transitional deal in place.
