A reporter has revealed what really happened between the Queen and Princess Anne at Buckingham Palace during a dinner for NATO leaders - after a video emerged of the interaction left royal watchers guessing.

The Queen, in the process of greeting Donald and Melania Trump, was captured on camera making a subtle gesture to Princess Anne, standing in a nearby doorway.

Footage shows the Queen uttering something to the princess who looks bewildered and shrugs in response.

The interaction has sent royal experts into a frenzy and brought about numerous theories as to what happened.

While some suggested Anne was snubbing the US President and first lady, a reporter at the event has revealed Princess Anne was telling her mother "it's only me", responding to the Queen looking for the next leader to greet with a royal welcome.

The details came via a Twitter thread by The Times journalist, Valentine Low.

Mr Low explained: "OK, here goes... Princess Anne: the truth. 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."
