Prime Minister David Cameron and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn had to walk side by side as they made their way from the House of Commons to the Lords for the Queen's Speech.
And there was one term on everyone's lips - or rather being typed out on Twitter - AWKWARD.
So just how terrible was it?

Cameron did seem to initiate some sort of polite conversation with his Labour counterpart, a noted republican, but it didn't go down well.
That Corbyn and Cameron shuffle from the Commons to the Lords was awkward. Cameron tried to be friendly, Corbyn didn't even look at him!

Of all the awkward walks from Commons to Lords, Cameron-Corbyn wins by quite some distance. #QueensSpeech

In seriousness, what could the two men discuss pleasantly while shuffling in front of cameras to an event with the Queen?
Watching Corbyn and Cameron walk towards parliament together is the most awkward thing??

The awkward Cameron/Corbyn walk is my favourite moment of 2016 so far#QueensSpeech

And it seems that some of Jeremy's supporters are quite pleased he didn't partake in some humdrum banter about weather.
