CNN – Princess Anne shrugs as Queen gestures for her to greet Donald Trump in a viral video.
In a video filmed at Buckingham Palace’s NATO reception on Tuesday evening, the Queen – along with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall – is seen shaking hands with Trump and his wife, Melania. The 93-year-old monarch then looks over, apparently to check which world leader she is due to receive next, before noticing her daughter standing in the background by the door.
Queen Elizabeth says something inaudible towards Anne in the distance before the Princess Royal shrugs and can be heard replying: “It’s just me.” Princess Anne apparently refused to greet Trump. It wasn’t long before “Princess Anne” was the top trend on Twitter. See quick video clip here:

Princess Anne was also caught on camera alongside world leaders who were appearing to joke about Trump at the event in London. The video appeared to show British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, French President Emmanuel Macron, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and the princess laughing about the US President’s behavior during the summit.
Microphones could only pick up snippets of the conversation at the reception, which the press was given limited access to; none of the leaders seemed to be aware that the conversation was being recorded. They were, however, talking openly and loudly enough to be heard by others. Roll the tape:
Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, admitted Wednesday that he and other world leaders were talking about the US President. “Last night, I made reference to the fact that there was an unscheduled press conference before my meeting with President Trump. I was happy to be part of it, but it was certainly notable,” Trudeau said during a Wednesday press conference. Trudeau indicated that he wasn’t concerned about his comments affecting the US-Canadian relationship, but Trump reacted angrily earlier, calling Trudeau “two-faced,” before adding, “honestly with Trudeau, he’s a nice guy.”
So let’s get this straight. Trump has an unscheduled press conference to speak and inform the people (late 40 minutes), and Trudeau, Macron, and Prince Anne have a childish hissy fit? Mocking and joking about Trump. For once, the BBC front page (at the time of this post – see inset graphic) had it correct, “Trump on his best behavior, but is everyone else?”
And what about those NATO payments Prime Minister Trudeau? President Macron, better hurry back to France, before your country burns down via the Yellow Vests protests. Oh, yes, the woman born with a silver spoon that has done nothing all her life, other than prancing around from one charity event to another?
Here is the thing. These mockers are not just mocking Trump. They are mocking the “little” people. How dare Trump spend time and talk to them through what media there is left. All the while, they sip on their fine drinks and laugh and mock while their countries are in pain. They simply are enjoying the riches of their personal successes a bit too much.
Frankly, who could blame Trump leaving the NATO conference early than to stay and listen to these dingbats that can’t manage their own countries. The behavior of these mockers is unacceptable and owe Trump a big apology. And not just Trump but the American people as well, you know those people that defend their countries.
