Princess Anne shared a sweet interaction with a little girl who presented her with flowers during a visit to Glasgow, where the Princess Royal met with people who had turned out to pay their respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. 

Princess Anne, the second eldest of the Queen's children, appeared in Scotland on Thursday to greet fans who gathered to lay flowers for Her Majesty the Queen, who died aged 96 at Balmoral Castle on September 8th 2022.

During the trip, cameras caught Princess Anne chatting to the crowd, describing the floral tributes left in honor of her late mother as "really and truly out of this world".

The Princess Royal also showed her sweet side as she chatted with a little girl who wanted to give her some flowers.

Princess Anne was heard saying, "They're not for me are they? They're for the Queen?" The little girl's mother responded, "The pink ones are for you, and the yellow ones are for the Queen."

Her Royal Highness then said, "Well that's very kind of you," as she accepted the pink flowers from the little girl's outstretched hand.

The moving encounter was caught on camera and royal fans took to social media to express their respect for Princess Anne, praising her for her lovely reaction. 

"I think Princess Anne has become my favorite royal. So humble, refined and committed tirelessly for the monarch, in a week when she must be crying inside. A dignified lady if ever I’ve seen one," said one fan.

Another compared the Princess to her late mother, writing, "Made of very stern stuff, the Princess Royal, to be out there again after the week she’s had. Dutiful to the core, just like the late Queen."

Travelling to Sandringham House, the Prince and Princess of Wales, also looked in awe at the flowers that had been left by the public. This was Prince William and Catherine's first trip to Sandringham since the Queen's death and their solemn royal walkabout showed the couple's grief.

However, while chatting to fans, Catherine said that support from the public is 'keeping her going,' as she and other members of the family continued to put on a brave face.
