Scott Morrison impresses the Queen with the PERFECT gift during a visit to Buckingham Palace – while wife Jenny offers a graceful curtsy and handshake

  • Prime Minister Scott Morrison won the Queen over with a book about Winx
  •  The Queen is known to love horse racing and is often spotted at the races
  • Jenny Morrison looked graceful as she managed to curtsy and shake hands
  • She wore a free-flowing grey and yellow calf-length dress for the occasion 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison won the Queen over with a book dedicated to one of Australia’s most acclaimed racehorses. 

Mr Morrison clutched the gift in a small red bag as he and his wife Jenny visited the 93-year-old monarch inside Buckingham Palace.

The Liberal Party leader looked nervous as he bowed, while Mrs Morrison appeared more comfortable.

The mother-of-two and registered nurse managed a graceful curtsy while shaking the Queen’s hand. 

She wore a free-flowing grey and yellow calf-length dress for the occasion, while Mr Morrison sported a navy suit.  

The newly elected Prime Minister presented the Queen with a book in honour of now retired racehorse Winx, written by by Andrew Rule and signed by her owners.

Queen Elizabeth II, 93, is known to have a love of horse racing, and is often spotted at Royal Ascot racecourse.

The gift comes after new research revealed the Queen earned a staggering $14,112,266 (£7,768,448) in winnings from her horses over the last 31 years.

Her Majesty has won 534 races from 3,205 runs over her career as a racehorse owner in races in the UK and Ireland.

The trio discussed the Morrison’s busy schedule during their trip.

Within hours of arriving in London after a 26-hour flight from the Solomon Islands, Mr Morrison had met with Prince Charles for tea, had lunch with members of the UK-Australia Chamber of Commerce and toured the Bank of England with governor Mark Carney.   

‘(The Solomon Islands) is not quite on the way but it was an important visit to meet the new prime minister, Manasseh Sogavare, ‘ Mr Morrison said.

‘It was a successful trip and they asked me to pass on their regards to you.’

Mr Morrison is expected to join the Queen later tonight to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
