Firstly, it meant a great expansion of British territorial claims in the New World.

France also lost all of its territory to Great Britain in the raw material rich Asian country of India. Britain’s ally in the war, Prussia, ruled by Fredrick the Great came out of the war as a European power. But the cost of the war had greatly enlarged Britain’s debt. Moreover, the war generated substantial resentment towards the colonists among English leaders, who were not satisfied with the financial and military help they had received from the colonists during the war. All these factors combined to persuade many English leaders that the colonies needed a major reorganization and that the central authority should be in London. The English leaders set in motion plans to give London more control over the government of the colonies and these plans were eventually a big part of the colonial resentment towards British imperial policies that led to the American Revolution.
