The deal has been finalized after months of intense negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union, shortly before the end of the transition period that the UK entered after it exited the EU on 31 January 2020.
The post-Brexit deal between the United Kingdom and the European Union that was agreed between the sides on Christmas Eve, received royal approval on Thursday.
The agreement will come into force on 31 December from 11 p.m. local time.
Becoming law only a day before the end of the transition period, the deal was earlier passed by both House of Commons and the House of Lords.
