This was after his first face-to-face meeting with the Queen in Windsor, following a few days as a guest on the sidelines of the G7 in Cornwall.

At the G7 meeting Australia’s position on China was warmly backed with significant supportive language from the group, which includes the United States and the UK.

At Downing Street with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Mr Morrison signed a free trade agreement with Britain.
