UPDATE: Wednesday, December 4, at 1 p.m. — Here is an explanation for Anne’s reported “snub” (which, turns out, wasn’t a snub at all):
If you’re not an obsessive royals follower (like myself) but recently watched the latest season of The Crown, you may be a newfound fan of Princess Anne, the queen’s only daughter. Frankly, I would have loved an entire season just about Anne—we didn’t even get to see that she once foiled a plot to kidnap her!
Generally speaking, Anne is not the royal who makes the most headlines, quietly going about her royal duties without much scandal. But a new video from last night’s NATO reception hosted by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace has the internet all abuzz. In it Donald and Melania Trump are greeted in a receiving line by the queen, Prince Charles, and Duchess Camilla as Anne stands to the side. The queen appears to gesture to her daughter—perhaps asking her to join them—and Anne simply shrugs and laughs.
There’s no sound in the video, so we can’t be sure of what exactly is going on between the royals and don’t know definitively if Anne was even meant to be one of the initial greeters at all.
Watch for yourself below:
Of course, the internet had a lot of thoughts about this viral moment, wondering whether Anne was in trouble with her mom or whether she purposefully removed herself from the receiving line. “The Queen chastising Princess Anne for not greeting Trump and Anne not giving a single shit is the mood we all need to take into today,” one person tweeted.
That wasn’t even the only viral moment involving Anne at the reception. A video of Justin Trudeau chatting with France’s Emmanuel Macron, Britain’s Boris Johnson, and Princess Anne appears to show the Canadian prime minister talking about President Trump (though he is not mentioned by name) and his lateness thanks to an unprompted press conference.
Affection for Anne grew even deeper on Twitter. “People are surprised that Princess Anne can hang? That woman once was the victim of an attempted kidnapping and when she was told to get out of her car at gunpoint she said, ‘Not bloody likely.’ A true bad bitch,” one person wrote.
So do you think this will all be explained in a future season of The Crown? We hope so.
