As part of her first in person engagement since recovering from a bout of COVID-19, Queen Elizabeth II held an audience with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday.
In Windsor Castle, where Queen Elizabeth II has been staying since the outbreak of the pandemic, Trudeau met with Queen Elizabeth, who is also the Queen of Canada.
Canada has a special place in the queen’s heart. The queen has visited Canada more than 20 times, which makes her a strong attachment to the nation.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in UK with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte for talks on the Ukraine war.
It has been some time since they have known each other. Since his father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, was one of Canada’s longest-serving prime ministers, Trudeau met the monarch on several occasions as a child.
Concern over the 95-year-old monarch was raised after the palace announced on Feb. 20 that queen Elizabeth had tested positive.
As part of her right to privacy, the palace has declined to comment on the monarch’s health on a daily basis, but officials have said that Elizabeth has received all her vaccines including a booster shot
