The Queen has come to terms with using video calls, with a little help from her daughter, Princess Anne! The pair took part in a video call to support the nation's carers during National Carers' Week, with a clip included in ITV's documentary, Anne: The Princess Royal at 70.

WATCH: The Queen video chats with Princess Anne

In the footage, Her Majesty's Assistant Private Secretary Tom Laing-Baker can be heard introducing her, as Anne smiles and says: "Good morning at Windsor." Appearing on the screen, the Queen said: "Good morning. I'm very glad to have been able to join you."

Anne then tries to give her royal mother a rundown of how to use the video call, asking her: "Can you see everybody? You should have six people on your screen," to which she replies: "Yes, well I can see four anyway!"
