It's 2019 and everyone has stopped caring, even the British royal family. The famously tight-lipped monarchs had the, uh, pleasure of greeting President Donald Trump at the 70th Anniversary of NATO reception in London, and Princess Anne had the most major reaction: NOPE. And yes, it was caught on camera. And yes, the internet reacted exactly as you would expect. This is truly the content we all need.
As you can see from the video, Princess Anne declines to join the royal line to shake President Trump and the first lady's hand.
The royal receiving line included Queen Elizabeth II, Earl of Wessex Prince Edward, and Duke and Duchess of Cornwall Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. As you can see, Princess Anne stayed back in the doorway until she's admonished by the Queen for not joining the line.
Princess Anne, in the most powerful display of aloofness, shrugs like she can't be bothered. IT IS A MOOD. AN ENTIRE INTERNATIONAL MOOD.
In case you didn't know, Princess Anne is a bad b.
Don't be shocked that Princess Anne flouted international protocol. The 69-year-old princess is one of the more indefatigable members of the royal fam. She divorced her first husband, Mark Phillips (which is very looked down upon among royals), declined to give her children royal titles, and famously survived a kidnapping attempt. As she was being held at gunpoint, the would-be kidnapper told her to get out of her car — she replied "not bloody likely" and escaped unharmed.
It gets better: The princess also joined in on gossiping about Trump.
Princess Anne was part of a gossip gaggle with other world leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron.
On a hot mic, Trudeau can be heard making fun of Trump's propensity to hold long, rambling press conferences during international summits. "He takes a 40-minute press conference off the top, yeah yeah!" says Trudeau. Trump held a surprise hour-long presser on Monday. "I watched his team's jaw drop on the floor," Trudeau continued. The princess appeared to giggle and she asked: "What did he say?"
Trump responded by calling Trudeau "two-faced," but has not responded to Princess Anne's total slight.
