ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau receives an honorary doctorate from the University of Edinburgh on Wednesday (July 5). The ceremony came on the second full day of his European trip for bilateral meetings before the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. Trudeau later met with Queen Elizabeth at her official Scottish residence. It was the pair's second meeting since Trudeau took office in 2015. Trudeau told the Queen about receiving the honorary degree, telling her it "probably dismays a number of my former professors." The Queen chuckled at that.
