After admitting that she splurged on an Egg McMuffin at McDonald's, Michelle chimed in, in accordance with her healthy eating initiative: "I'm sure it was on a whole-wheat muffin," adding, "You're setting me back, Gabby." 

As for meeting Kate, Gabby beamed, "It was definitely an exciting experience." She said the duchess approached the team and congratulated them. The 16-year-old pointed out, "My teammate [Aly Raisman] told her, 'I like your fashion,' and [Kate] said, "I like your leos.'"
