They dined on duck a l’orange while continuing their negotiations over the Brexit delay.
The latest murmurings from the Brussels summit is that EU27 leaders seem to be focusing on a flexible approach to May’s Article 50 extension request.
The bloc is expected to respond with a suggestion of two different Brexit dates, depending on whether Theresa May can finally get her Brexit deal through Parliament in a third meaningful vote next week.
If the Withdrawal Agreement passes, the UK will leave on May 22 with a deal in place.
However if it fails, Theresa May has until April 11 to notify the EU of whether it will participate in EU elections and request a long extension or leave the EU without a deal.
Mrs May spent 90 minutes with her European counterparts before being ejected for the EU27 discussions.
The Prime Minister was said to present “no plan B”, was “unconvincing” and didn’t “say anything different to her previous addresses to the EU27”, according to a number of accounts from the meeting.
