"The pirouette happened in 1977 at a meeting of what was then the Group of Seven leaders at Buckingham Palace… Trudeau told them he’d lost out jockeying for a spot near the Queen in a group photo. As the world leaders milled around the gilded room, Trudeau went for a spin.
The instant was captured by CP’s Doug Ball, by “pure horsesh—t luck,” the photographer recalls in Trudeau. Photographers had to catch Trudeau in the moment; there were no staged repeats.”
