Britain’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, sat down to a three-course lunch at 10 Downing Street on Thursday afternoon.
They were meeting at the UK prime minister's official residence in central London to launch a Partnership for the Future, strengthening ties between the two countries.
For the first course, they were served a pea and broad bean salad, with goat cheese and honey.
The main course was halal chicken, complemented by tarragon cream sauce, pommes anna and a side of seasonal vegetables.
For dessert, chefs whipped up a glazed lemon tart with a blueberry compote and creme fraiche.
The visit also included a military guard of honour at nearby Horse Guards Parade.
