"Nice to meet you, but it would be better for us if you were in your own country," she told the mom-of-three who was shaking her hand. "Ireland belongs to the Irish." In video footage, the woman can be seen recording the interaction on her phone, but Kate maintained her composure and gave a laugh before moving on.

"Catherine just moved on without missing a beat. Lol," quipped another, with a third noting, "And the Princess of Wales handled it with Grace and Dignity. As always."

There's been tension between Northern Ireland and England for centuries, with Queen Elizabeth II once addressing the issue back in 2011.

"It is a sad and regrettable reality that through history our islands have experienced more than their fair share of heartache, turbulence and loss ... with the benefit of historical hindsight we can all see things which we wish had been done differently, or not at all," she stated. "To all those who have suffered as a consequence of our troubled past, I extend my sincere thoughts and deep sympathy."
