The diplomatic trip after the death of the Queen by the new Prince and Princess of Wales was somewhat marred by a heckler in the crowd. While shaking hands with the princess, a woman said, “Nice to meet you, but it would be better if you were in your own country." The woman looked to be recording the interaction on a cell phone while donning an emerald green vest. Despite being in a state of shock, Kate kept her cool throughout the exchange, laughed, let go of the woman's hand, then smiled and greeted others in the group. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II conferred the titles of Baron and Baroness Carrickfergus on the Prince and Princess of Wales upon their 2011 nuptials that connects the royal couple to Northern Ireland by virtue of the title.
