Many of us had to get to grips with video calling and Zoom meetings during lockdown, and as we know, the royal family were no exception (remember when Prince William and Kate Middleton played virtual bingo with Welsh pensioners? And when we saw inside Meghan and Harry's LA home?). However, it seems as though, much like us, The Queen also experienced the odd technical difficulty along the way.
A delightful new clip shared by ITV's royal correspondent Chris Ship, ahead of a new documentary, Anne: The Princess Royal at 70, shows Her Majesty being schooled by her only daughter, Anne on how to use Webex (an online chat platform).
During a call with a group of carers, The Queen appears on screen and says, "Good morning, I'm very glad to have been able to join you." To which Anne replies, "Can you see everybody? You should have six people on your screen."
Her Majesty, who looks very smart in a floral ensemble teamed with a pearl necklace, then says, "Yes... well I can see four anyway!" Oh Queenie! Anne, who is the mother of Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips, then joked in response, "Actually, you don't need [to see] me. You know what I look like!"
Captioning the behind-the-scenes footage, Ship wrote: "Watch the moment Princess Anne tried to teach her elderly mother about a video call on @webex . But her elderly mother is, err, the Queen. The Princess Royal also talks about how her ‘outdoor learning’ ideas for home-schooling were not eagerly taken up by her grandchildren."
The documentary all about Anne airs tonight at 9pm on ITV and is set to offer a real insight into the life and work of Prince Charles' younger sister (she is two years his junior). There looks to be some really sweet personal interviews with the Princess Royal, where she reminisces on her childhood and the relationship she has with her grandchildren, as well as Zara.
So if you're a royal fan, don't forget to tune in!
