Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was just dubbed the ‘sexiest politician in the world‘, and it seems that even the Queen can’t help herself! The pair met at a dinner for the Commonwealth Heads of Government in Malta (sounds like the beginning of a beautiful love story…), during which Trudeau toasted to her majesty, fuelling a flirtatious rapport between himself and Queen Elizabeth.
Ok, ok, so it’s perhaps not flirting by our standards (?), but it’s pretty clear that good ol’ Liz has a bit of a soft spot for our handsome Canadian friend. After Trudeau pointed out that he was the 12th Canadian prime minister to serve during Queen Elizabeth II’s 63 year reign:
‘Some of these memories are of formal state occasions. Some are more personal.
‘One that I personally remember well from my childhood and indeed, treasure is this: it is 1982, Queen Elizabeth signs the Constitution Act, thus empowering Canada’s legal foundation, including our Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
‘On that cool day in April, seated next to you, was my father. Pierre Elliott Trudeau was your fourth Canadian prime minister. I am your twelfth.’
…she jokingly thanked him for ‘making [her] feel so old‘.
And she didn’t stop there. Elizabeth tried the gag again on twitter, solidifying everyone’s suspicions that she’s still ‘got’ it. Well…she is married to Prince Philip after all…
And THEN, Justin replied with this…
Cor, blimey you two…steady on!
