Miss C asked: "These are the leaders of the G7, but there are nine of them. What?"

Pictured (left to right): Justin Trudeau, Canada's prime minister; Charles Michel, president of the European Council; US President Joe Biden; Yoshihide Suga, Japan's prime minister; Boris Johnson, Britain's prime minister; Mario Draghi, Italy's prime minister; Emmanuel Macron, France's president; Ursula von der Leyen, president of the European Commission; and Angela Merkel, Germany's chancellor.  So you have the leaders of the seven countries, and two outliers.

I'm surprised they didn't somehow make room to include someone – the mayor, for example – from the host community.

Thanks for the explanation, Bill! Suga was the only one in the back row I recognized, and I wondered why.

The G7 is made up of the world's largest developed economies: France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
Representatives of the European Union (2) were added after it was formed.

Russia got kicked out after invading Crimea and China is not considered a "developed" economy.
