Trudeau’s conversation during the Buckingham Palace reception with several leaders on Tuesday night is not the only moment to have gone viral. If you look on Twitter right now, you’ll see that the top trend on the popular social media platform is “Princess Anne.”

In a video from last night’s Buckingham Palace reception, Donald Trump and his wife Melania can be seen walking towards the royal line where Queen Elizabeth II — alongside Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall — is waiting to receive them.

As the British monarch offers her hand to the President, the Princess Royal can be seen in the background by the door covering her mouth. She watches on as the Queen engages in a warm exchange with Trump.

The Queen then looks over apparently to see which world leader is due to receive next and instead notices her daughter. The Queen says something inaudible in Anne’s direction before the Princess Royal shrugs and can be heard replying “It’s just me” as the group around the 93-year-old sovereign chuckles.

Some on Twitter have suggested the Queen was perhaps “scolding” Anne for missing the line-up. However, that seems unlikely as only Charles and Camilla were supposed to also be in the receiving line, according to Buckingham Palace.

CNN has reached out to Buckingham Palace for clarification on the events in the video but had not heard a response by time of publication.
