Princess Anne attended the NATO reception at Buckingham Palace alongside other members of the royal family, but a video of her interaction with her mother, the Queen, is causing quite the stir.
- The royal is seen standing in the corner while the Queen, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla greet President Trump and his wife Melania.
- In the video, the Queen seems to be making a gesture for her to join the royal receiving line.
- This follows royal news that Prince Edward was forced to pull out of the dinner.
The Queen hosted leaders of the nations that belong to NATO at Buckingham Palace last night, to mark 70 years of Nato cooperation and collective spirit.
Joining her in hosting duties was her son Prince Charles alongside his wife, and daughter Princess Anne.
It seems like Princess Anne decided not to join the royal receiving line, but the Queen was definitely not impressed.
In a short clip that has now gone viral on social media, Queen Elizabeth II is seen giving a nod to Princess Anne for her to join her, Charles and Camilla as they greet President Trump and his wife Melania.
The American leader was 40 minutes late for the event, so perhaps Princess Anne was not impressed by his tardiness – we’ll never know!
One of of the tweets sharing the video on Twitter said, ‘Juuust want to point out in this clip…The Queen is ‘scolding’ Princess Anne who is noticeably absent from the royal receiving line. Watch her shrug:’
Many royal fans are supporting the Princess, with one writing, ‘LOVE that Princess Anne flat out refuses to get in receiving line to shake hands w Trump & Melania! She is having none of the proper Royal Family line where they smile & act like Trump is a normal POTUS! Anne is taking a stand & I respect her for it!’
A second said, ‘She doesn’t want to shake hands with him. Hahahaha. Good for her.’
Another wrote, ‘We are all #PrincessAnne when we’re at a Family Holiday Gathering and the relatives you hate the most arrive.’
Others are laughing at the fact that no matter your age, you’re never too old to be told off by your mother. One wrote, ‘You’re never too old to get a side eye from your mom.‘
