The presidents of the European Commission and the European Council are present, in addition to the seven national leaders. Mr Redwood argued that this means that the EU does indeed have five representatives at the top.

He tweeted: “The EU at the G7 can be represented by Germany, France and Italy, with three votes.
“So why can the EU also send two EU presidents to give them a majority? “

The post was widely shared, receiving over 600 retweets and 2,800 likes.

The United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Japan, Italy and Canada constitute the seven members of the G7.

They were joined in Cornwall by Ursula von der Leyen and Charles Michel, respectively Presidents of the European Commission and of the Council.
Boris Johnson, who is hosting the event, also invited leaders from India, Australia and South Korea to attend some of the talks.

The President of the European Commission has attended meetings of the G7, or its precursor, since 1981.

Since 2010, the President of the European Council has been invited as well as the co-representative of the EU.

Russia was a member of the G8 until 2014, when it was expelled following its annexation of Crimea producing the G7.

The conference focuses on climate change, the fight against the coronavirus and threats to global security.

In his opening remarks, Mr Johnson said G7 countries need to ‘improve in our societies’ as they recover from the coronavirus.

He urged the developed world not to “repeat the mistakes of the last great crisis, the last great economic recession of 2008, when the recovery was not uniform in all parts of society”.

G7 leaders were pictured with the Queen outside Project Eden on Friday.

The monarch got a laugh by jokingly asking, “Are you supposed to sound like you’re having fun?” “

Mr Johnson replied: ‘We had fun – despite appearances. “

However, there are tensions within the group due to the controversy over the Northern Ireland Protocol.

As part of Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal, customs checks take place on some goods traveling between Northern Ireland and Britain.

This has outraged trade unionists, who claim it undermines their position within the UK.

Loyalists staged protests in towns across the province, demanding the protocol be abolished.

Mr Johnson urged the EU to show more flexibility in making the deal work.

However, French President Emmanuel Macron insists the protocols are fully implemented.
