Kate Middleton’s whirlwind trip to the United States has resulted in one of our all-time favorite GIFs, a fitting moment for a Duchess confronted with New York attitude.

Wrapping gifts at the Northside Center For Child Development in Harlem on Monday, Kate was talking with onlookers when a volunteer told her to cut the chit-chat.

Hilariously and bluntly told to “keep wrapping,” Kate responded in kind:

Following her awesome side eye glance for the ages, the 32-year-old snapped to it on the double, resuming packaging up Christmas presents with the kids.

New York does not tolerate slackers. Even if they’re royals.

Alas, Catherine’s memorable trip to America is already over. The royals are back in London as of this morning, leaving us wanting more until next year perhaps.

At least between this, Kate being asked if she’s from Frozen, getting sweated on by LeBron and maybe even drinking champagne while pregnant, she made the most of it!

Gotta love the fact that in three short days, she showed she can hold her own and dish a little sass – she’s still regal, after all – right back at the New York crowd.

Kate and Will attended an NYU fundraiser last night. As usual, they were both the picture of class.
