The woman began by touching Beatrice's arm and asking, "Who are you?"

"My name is Beatrice," she told the woman. "And the Queen is my granny."

The woman responded, "You're one of the royalties?"

The princess held the woman's hand and explained, "Yes, she's my granny. I'm very, very lucky."

The video gained a lot of attention, amassing over 2.9 million views and thousands of comments from users commending Beatrice on how she handled the interaction.

One user wrote, "She is soo underrated [to be honest]! But I love how she is doing her duty even [though] she is not part of the senior royals she's still doing her duties."

Princess Beatrice has previously opened up about her admiration for her grandmother previous interviews.

"I have two role models, my mother and my grandmother," she told the publication. "They are both formidable women. I think having female role models is incredibly important and I am very lucky that I happen to be related to these two incredible women."

She continued, "I find my grandmother inspiring every day because her overwhelming sense of duty is linked with an overwhelming curiosity."

Beatrice and her sister, Princess Eugenie, took part in the celebrations for the Queen's 70 years on the throne earlier this week and were photographed watching the Platinum Jubilee pageant from the royal box.

"Every day she's curious to learn something new, to do something new, and I think that at 91 years old, she goes out into the community with a genuine curiosity as to how she can be a force for good in the world."
