Scott Morrison meets the Queen during whirlwind tour of the UK after Australia trade agreement

Scott Morrison meets the Queen in the Oak Room at Windsor Castle during whirlwind tour of the UK – hours after thrashing out a major trade deal with post-Brexit Britain

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has had an audience with the Queen at Windsor Castle. 

The meeting, where Mr Morrison wore a crisp suit and blue tie and the monarch opted for a summery yellow dress, took place just hours after a UK-Australia trade deal was announced.

In a historic deal that was Briton’s first negotiated from scratch since leaving the European Union, Aussie producers will be able to export more of their world-leading beef, lamb and cheese to the UK and young people will be able to move more freely between the two countries. 

The agreement was thrashed out by Scott Morrison and Boris Johnson over a three-hour dinner in Number 10 Downing Street on Tuesday night where the friends feasted on Scottish salmon and Welsh lamb, washed down with Australian wine.
