Latest reports just confirmed that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met Queen Elizabeth on Wednesday for a private audience at her Scottish residence. It was then reported that the Queen received the world leader at the Palace of Holyrood located in Edinburgh.
This was the second time Justin Trudeau met Queen Elizabeth during his term as prime minister of Canada. It can be recalled that last 2015, the two met when Trudeau visited Britain and his visit also include an audience with the former Britain's Prime Minster David Cameron.
According to ABC News, Queen Elizabeth did not meet Prime Minster Justin Trudeau in purpose as the Queen did not travel just to attend Canada's celebration of its 150th birthday last weekend. Reports were rife that instead of the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William were the ones who represented the Queen and attended the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Canada's Prime Minster Justin Trudeau was in Europe because of the G20 summit which will be held this weekend. Along with this purpose, he also visited the new prime minister of Ireland, Leo Vradakar last Tuesday.
But that second meeting was not actually their first encounter together as well as on their 2015 meeting. It can also be recalled that during the 1970s, Justin Trudeau was able to shake the Queen's hand when he was still a child. He was accompanying his father, Pierre that time for the latter's U.K. visit.
With this, National Post reported that Prime Minster Justin Trudeau had good words to say about Queen Elizabeth and their very first encounter when he was still a child. He said that the Queen was always gracious and lovely and that everything in the first meeting was nice moment since his father liked the Queen so much. Moreover, he even added that his father was proud to be introducing his son to Queen Elizabeth.
It was claimed that Justin Trudeau's father and Queen Elizabeth kept a good relationship and even met for several times. However, there was this one time during his 1977 visit to the Buckingham Palace which caused controversy. But despite that, Canada's current Prime Minster Trudeau is implying that he has good ties with the Queen.
