World leaders appear to gossip about Trump Pic: Twitter
Princess Anne was caught on camera twice in Buckingham Palace yesterday, first appearing to disobey the Queen and later as part of a group of world leaders appearing to gossip about Donald Trump.
At a lavish reception hosted by the Queen in the palace state rooms on December 3, one video clip shows the Princess Royal standing near UK PM Boris Johnson, Canadian leader Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron as they laughed over why Mr Macron arrived late at the reception.
The group seem to snigger about an impromptu, lengthy conference given yesterday by Mr Trump which lasted 48 minutes.
No one mentions Mr Trump by name but Mr Johnson asks Mr Macron, “is that why you were late?” and Mr Trudeau interjects, “he’s late because he takes a 40 minute press conference off the top.”
Mr Macron can then be seen gesturing animatedly. Earlier the French and US leaders clashed after Mr Macron called Nato, which is celebrating its 70th anniversary, ‘brain dead.’
In photos and the video footage, Princess Anne is part of the group and can be seen speaking but nothing can be heard.
