Even though the meeting seemed to have a friendly air, Queen Elizabeth's daughter Princess Anne created quite a furor when she was scolded by her royal mother.
Queen and Princess Anne’s hilarious exchange
During the reception, Princess Anne, daughter of Queen Elizabeth, shared a funny moment with the monarch.
The Queen and her eldest son, Prince Charles, were greeting Donald and Melania Trump when Her Majesty suddenly realized that Anne was not there.
The monarch looked at her daughter, who was literally standing in the corner, and appeared to make some kind of gesture to make her join the receiving line. Anne’s reaction to her mother’s call was simply priceless – she just shrugged.
The hilarious exchange was caught on camera:

Also: look closely and you’ll both Trump and Melania simultaneously look in Anne’s direction while she shrugs. *chef’s kiss*— Charlotte Clymer🏳️🌈 (@cmclymer) 4 December 2019

The video proves that in some ways, the royal family members are just like us and seeing the Queen scolding Princess Anne who just shrugged in response, like a typical teenager, made us smile.
