Princess Anne has gone viral.
Queen Elizabeth's only daughter made headlines when a video from Tuesday's NATO reception showed her shrugging after her mother appeared to motion her over to greet President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump. In the clip, the queen seemed to chastise Anne after her shrug.
The queen was greeting the U.S. politician and his wife alongside her son, Prince Charles, and his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, while Anne stood to the side in the doorway.
Many were quick to take to Twitter and point out Anne's apparent snub of the president, with one praising it as "the mood we all need to take into today" and another calling it "amazing."

However, reporters at the event told a different side of the story, with many of them pointing out that Anne was likely not in the receiving line to greet the president and first lady because she is not the heir to the throne like her brother, Charles.
In an article for Belfast Telegraph, Laura Elston wrote that the actual interaction between the queen and Anne began when the monarch turned to see which world leader she'd meet next and instead saw her daughter standing in the doorway.
According to the outlet, Anne raised both her hands in the air, laughed and remarked, "It's just me," before adding "and this lot" in reference to members of the household behind her.
At the reception itself, however, Anne was seen speaking with Canada's Justin Trudeau, France's Emmanuel Macron, Britain's Boris Johnson and others as they appeared to speak ill of Trump.
