The Daily Express suggested that Princess Anne and the Queen had a silent argument during Tuesday's reception at Buckingham Palace after a video emerged online showing the monarch and her daughter exchanging some words after the arrival of the Trumps.
Was Queen Elizabeth really displeased with Princess Anne?
The video shows the monarch standing in the royal receiving line greeting heads of state together with Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, as well as NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. After shaking hands with US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania, the Queen can be seen looking at her daughter and apparently gesturing at her as if inviting her to greet the Trumps. But Princess Anne just widened her arms in response and remained standing aside.
