UK and France will work together despite a diplomatic spat over Australian submarines, Downing Street says.

Of course Msr. Macron agreed to "continue working closely together around the world" because if they didn't agree they risk fading into insignificance which is precisely the reason they spat their dummy out in the first place - because they were left out.

Australia merely went with a better option, and as one Australian politician aptly put it "the French have never been the most reliable of allies", anyway.
