1. She has. No, no one needs to approve them.

David Davis was replaced by Dominic Raab; Boris Johnson by Jeremy Hunt, who had been Health Secretary; that's now Matt Hancock. Both were announced within a day of the resignations.

Raab has already had his first embarrassment; he stood up in the Commons to talk about the 'white paper' detailing the Brexit proposals, and it became clear the paper hadn't been given to MPs yet. People ran in with copies, and were literally throwing them to each other. The speaker had to suspend proceedings to give a chance for them to be distributed and for a cursory reading.
