But sources in Northern Ireland have told Sky News that "negotiations haven't proceeded in a way that DUP would have expected".
While the party membership was described by the Prime Minister as "friends and allies", it appears their rumoured demands for more money for infrastructure projects and guarantee of a "frictionless" border after Brexit have not been met. We will work hard every day to gain the trust and confidence of the British people, making their priorities our priorities'.
Having called a snap election in the hope of securing an increased majority to deliver Brexit in a "strong and stable" way, Mrs May acknowledged that the outcome was "not the one I hoped for".
She made clear she was not offering a full coalition with ministerial jobs for DUP MPs, but was seeking a "confidence and supply" arrangement, under which the smaller party would remain outside Government but would ensure its survival by supporting it on financial measures and no-confidence votes. Outside Brexit, there is an expectation of counter-terrorism legislation, and a bill on workers' rights.
"This is the first time in decades that a Prime Minister will propose a Queen's Speech without a Commons majority".

Theresa May was left exposed last night as the Democratic Unionist Party warned that it could scupper her minority government on the eve of today's Queen's Speech.
After the negative response to plans in the Tory manifesto to make pensioners pay for social care by selling their homes after they died, the Speech promised only a consultation on proposals which will be brought forward to improve social care.
The last time the Queen's Speech was similarly pared down was in 1974, when Harold Wilson defeated Ted Heath in another snap election created to give the Conservatives a larger mandate in Westminster.
The queen told lawmakers from both the upper and lower houses of parliament that the government is committed to building "the widest possible consensus" on Brexit, working with parliament, devolved administrations, business and others.
