Twenty Twenty (1.2) Horizontal menu - Submenu

Hi there!

I've tried adding a submenu in the horizontal menu but there is some issue regarding accessibility when I tested it.

It fails the Success Criterion 1.4.13 Content on Hover or Focus of WCAG : https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/#content-on-hover-or-focus

The submenu cannot be dismissed. If there are many links in the submenu, keyboard navigation is tedious since the person will have to tab all of the content of the submenu before reaching the next item of the menu.

Expected fix:

The submenu should be dismissable with the Esc key for example.

Here is a menu with a submenu that implements the SC 1.4.13 : https://www.eesc.europa.eu/

It's my first ticket, so I hope I'v done it properly.
