The princess was also filmed alongside British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte laughing as Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau candidly mocked Trump’s behavior at the NATO conference, joking about his need to hold an unscheduled press conference.
Princess Anne made headlines this morning when she was caught on camera shrugging at her mother, Queen Elizabeth II, after she appeared to ignore Donald and Melania Trump.
While the public seems to be interpreting Anne’s actions as a political statement, it may not be the case: as CNN reports, only Charles and Camilla were supposed to be a part of the official royal welcoming party, so Anne might not have been snubbing anybody at all.
On social media, this event has been widely interpreted as Anne purposefully ignoring Trump and getting a subsequent scolding from her mother, which she quite literally shrugs off.
In a the video filmed at the event, the president and First Lady are seen shaking hands with the Queen, Prince Charles, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
