People Think Prince Charles Was Subtly Flipping Off Donald Trump
| Last updated
Trump and First Lady Melania arrived at Buckingham Palace for the NATO reception on Tuesday, where they were greeted by the Queen, her son and Camilla Parker-Bowles.
As they meet, you can see ol' Liz looking up at Trump as he chats away, waggling his hands around as he converses.
Camilla does a good job of looking entertained, but Charles tilts his head down and slowly begins to scratch his nose - using, of all things, his middle finger.
Of course, he may have just been scratching his nose, but a large portion of the internet would like to believe otherwise.
One person tweeted: "I swear Prince Charles just gave Drump the universal sign for EFF-U!"
Another said: "My favorite video of the week... #PrinceCharles giving @realDonaldTrumpthe middle finger."
A third added: "He had four other fingers on that hand to choose from and he chose that one. That was not a mistake. Nice."
And there was another amusing moment, too.
Princess Anne shrugs in response to scolding from Queen Elizabeth for not being in the reception line for Trump as a senior royal. Amazing. :joy::joy::joy: pic.twitter.com/0TBK76leap

The Queen spots Princess Anne to her right, and appears to give her a signal that screams 'Why are you over there when Trump's over here? WTF Anne?!'
Princess Anne's response? A rather brilliant shrug - which many are taking for Anne 'snubbing' the Trumps.
But while we'll never really know what went down with all that, journalist Valentine Low believes the truth is slightly less exciting.
In a series of tweets, he wrote: "No, she didn't snub the Trumps. And she wasn't told off by the Queen.
"Instead the Queen, after greeting the Donald (and the Melania), turned to Anne to see who was next. But there wasn't anyone waiting: Trump was the last leader to be received by the Queen.
"Anne raised her hands in the air, laughed and said: 'It's just me,' adding a moment later 'and this lot' as she pointed to the members of the household behind her."
The Royals, eh? What a laff!
