Greeting President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump during their state visit to the UK, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles offered a wink to the cameras, which immediately went viral on Monday.
Brief footage showed Camilla winking at her protection officers as she and her husband Charles, Prince of Wales, met the Trumps who earlier visited the Queen at Buckingham Palace and toured Westminster Abbey.
The Duchess of Cornwall’s wink came as the foursome were going to jointly have tea at Clarence House, a British royal residence in London’s Westminster.
Netizens have, meanwhile, been quick to describe all this as a “royal wink”, with others describing it “more likely just an eye twitch” and a “pantomime wink”.

Another netizen jokingly claimed that “Camilla knows what’s in the tea that Donald will be drinking”, while one more Twitter user wrote “the nation falls in love with Camilla”.
The US President arrived in Britain on 3 June, in what became his first state visit to the country. The second day of the three-day visit will see Trump holding a joint news conference with outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May.
