    Australia's Prime Minister Met The Queen And It Looked A Tad Awkward

    "Although I am a republican, I am also an Elizabethan." Okeh.

    Australia's prime minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has ended his overseas trip to Europe with a visit to the Queen. And it looked like a real rager of a meeting.

    Speculation was rife on what the two could possibly have been discussing.

    The "heatwave" in England? How much milk to put in a cup of tea?

    Thankfully, I obtained an excerpt of the transcript*.


    *Note: This was not a real transcript.

    After the meet and greet, Turnbull was quick to point out though while he is a republican, he's also an "Elizabethan".


    "Even republicans like myself can be, and in my case are, very strong Elizabethans," he said.

    And just in case we didn't get it the first time, he also posted it on Twitter.

    Although I am a Republican, I am also an Elizabethan. It was an honour to meet Her Majesty today at Buckingham Pala…

    "Seriously guys. Trust me."

    However, there was no word on whether Turnbull performed his Donald Trump impersonation for the Queen.
