The Queen met Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his first visit to Britain today but their historic meeting was somewhat overshadowed by a surprising item in Her Majesty's fireplace.

The down-to-earth implement threatened to distract entirely from the moment that Queen warms up the room with a two-bar electric fire.Canada's new leader, 43 - who has gained female fans from around thanks to his Hollywood looks  - greeted the monarch for the first time since his election.

Justin Trudeau seemed charmed by the monarch as he warmly shook her hand, placed his left hand on top and bowed his head as they greeted each other in the royal residence in London The Queen, dressed in a pastel-pink ensemble with patent black accessories, appeared oblivious to the electric fire placed in the fireplace behind her.
