Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn had a rather awkward conversation on Monday as they walked into the House of Lords to watch the Queen deliver her Queen's Speech.
The leaders of the two biggest political parties traditionally walk side-by-side into the chamber in order to watch the monarch set out the legislative programme of her government.
In footage of the moment, Labour party leader Corbyn can be seen looking straight ahead as the prime minister tries, and apparently fails, to engage him in small talk.
Today's Queen's Speech was mired in controversy following allegations that the timing of Johnson's speech had effectively turned it into a "party political broadcast" for his Conservative party.Read more: Boris Johnson's relationship with the Queen hits 'rock bottom' as he is accused of forcing her to deliver a 'party political broadcast' for the Conservative Party
The row has led to reports that relations between the prime minister and the Queen are now at "rock bottom."

Relations between Johnson and Corbyn have so far been noticeably worse than those between previous leaders, some of whom have gone on to develop relatively close relationships after leaving office.
Johnson has been particularly outspoken in his condemnation of Corbyn.
In his recent speech at Conservative party conference, Johnson referred to Corbyn as a "Marxist" and an "anti-Semite" who should be blasted into space.
"Figuratively, if not literally, let us send Jeremy Corbyn into orbit where he belongs," he told supporters.
