British Prime Minister David Cameron made one little boys dream come true. So, what was this special wish? Well of course, none other than to become the prime minister for a day!

Cameron joined forces with the United Kingdom’s Make-A-Wish Foundation and granted seven-year-old Joseph a once in a lifetime opportunity, to spend the day with the prime minister and take over his duties.

When arriving at the Prime Minister’s establishment on Downing Street, Joe received a grand tour and had the opportunity to sit in Cameron’s chair in the Cabinet Room all while enjoying chocolate cake.

As interim Prime Minister, Joe and Cameron discussed the Royal Wedding, football and Joe’s input on policies including chocolate cake as breakfast for every child in school and no littering. Larry, the Downing Street cat known for his detest towards reporters, even graced Joe with his presence.

Joe has been sick most of his life and recently became diagnosed with a brain stem tumor. He dreams to become the actual prime minister and revealed he will at the age of 27.

“I’m honored to have been able to help grant Joe’s wish, it was an absolute pleasure to meet him – and he did a great job as PM,” David Cameron said.
