The Queen has held a rare face-to-face audience at Windsor Castle, meeting the Australian prime minister, who told her she was "quite the hit" at the G7 summit.

Wearing a vibrant yellow floral dress, the monarch was seen standing with her hands behind her back as she chatted to Scott Morrison in the Berkshire royal residence’s Oak Room on Tuesday.

It is the first time the head of state has been seen carrying out an audience in person, rather than virtually, since March 2020, just before England’s first lockdown.

Mr Morrison remarked of the Queen’s recent visit to Cornwall to meet G7 leaders: "You were quite the hit. Everyone was talking about you at dinner the next night."

The Queen replied: "Oh Lord. Were they really?"

Mr Morrison added: "They were. They were thrilled to see you."
