"This is a valid ruling today by the court", Paul Sweeney, one of the politicians who had put their name to the legal challenge, told Al Jazeera.

However, the government source said there would be no order issued ahead of next week's appeal.

A British government spokesman said: "We are disappointed by today's decision, and will appeal to the UK Supreme Court".

While the Court of Session judges seemed to stop short of affirming that power, they said they can still rule on the advice's effect.

Before it was suspended on Tuesday, the house of commons rushed through legislation to force Johnson to delay Brexit if there is no deal by an European Union summit on October 17. Corbyn says Labour would offer the people a second referendum on a credible option to leave against remaining in the European Union after an election.

Three judges accused the Prime Minister of suspending the Commons for the "improper goal of stymying Parliament" over his Brexit plans and said last Monday's prorogation was "null and of no effect".

The successful legal challenge had been brought by a group of 78 parliamentarians led by the SNP MP Joanna Cherry.

Away from the political arena, Catherine Haddon, a senior fellow at the Institute for Government, said that while the ruling found that Johnson's advice to the Queen on prorogation was unlawful, it does not now change the prorogation itself.

The judges will release their full findings on Friday.

There have been a variety of reactions after three appeal court judges in Scotland ruled that advice given by the British government to Queen Elizabeth II was illegal.

He added: "The UK government needs to bring forward a strong domestic legislative agenda".

"The immediate political implications are clear. parliament must be recalled immediately to allow the essential work of scrutiny to continue", she tweeted.

"The prime minister was not telling the truth about why he was doing it".

Opponents said the real reason was to shut down debate and challenges to his Brexit plans.

However, it is a highly visible sign of the constitutional crisis that the United Kingdom has slid into, and the ruling also has the potential to be hugely politically damaging for Boris Johnson, a Prime Minister who has had his honesty and integrity questioned more than any other premier a few weeks into the job.

"I call on him to recall Parliament".

He told Euronews: "Johnson should obey the law and get back to Parliament".

Dominic Grieve, one of 21 Brexit rebels thrown out of Johnson's Conservative Party last week, said that if Johnson had misled the queen, he should resign.

If Boris Johnson refused to do so, the Queen would be plunged into an incredibly awkward position.

"And I hope it would be untenable, not just because of the opposition, but because every member of the Conservative party that believes in our constitution would simply say "it's over", said Mr. "I have never been able to contemplate the possibility that the law could be that our sovereign parliament might be treated as an inconvenience by the prime minister".
