Most families had to help an elderly relative navigate modern technology during the lockdown – and the Princess Royal is no exception. The 94-year-old Queen took part in her first public video call last month to support caregivers across the country. It has since been revealed that it was Princess Anne who helped her mother on Zoom guide her through the new technology.

The video call took place during National Caregiver Week in June, where Her Majesty called caregivers from Windsor Castle.The Queen joined the Princess Royal on the conference call with four caregivers living across the UK tasked with caring for the family during the coronavirus crisis.

Speaking from a chateau lounge, the monarch spent 20 minutes listening to the women about their experiences and asking questions about the pressures they face.

In a preview of an upcoming ITV documentary to mark the royal’s 70th birthday, Anne is seen educating Her Majesty.

The new documentary, titled Princess Royal: Anne to 70 airs ahead of her milestone birthday in August.

At the start of the clip, Anne waits for her mother to come to Windsor Castle on roll call.

“It’s Tom here,” says the Queen’s Deputy Private Secretary Tom Laing-Baker, as the two connect.

“I’ll just introduce Her Majesty the Queen to you.” ”

One social media user wrote: “Love this! Made me smile “

Another added: “Put a smile on my face! ”

A third said: “Great. Princess Anne is awesome and it was lovely watching the Queen Zoom during the lockdown. I can’t wait to watch this. ”

The new documentary also sees Anne revealing her take on one of social media’s most popular platforms, Twitter.

She said, “I wouldn’t come close if you paid me frankly.” ”

Commenting on social media, Anne says: “With online technology… being in touch is one thing but it’s not quite the same.

“The ability to meet people is what makes the difference.

“I mean, I know what Twitter is but I wouldn’t go near it if you paid me frankly.” But it’s a slightly different problem. “
