Kate Middleton Rolls Her Eyes After Being Told to “Keep Wrapping” Presents at Charity Event

First, she  suffered the indignity of being hugged by a sweaty LeBron James during a charity  basketball match.

Now, a video has  emerged of the Duchess of Cambridge rolling her eyes after being exhorted to  ‘keep wrapping’ during a visit to a children’s centre in New York.

In the short clip,  the Duchess, who is busily wrapping a gift, is seen being tapped on the shoulder  by a well-wisher.

One is not amused! The Duchess delivers an eye roll following the intervention from the well wisher

As she looks round and smiles, Kate is told to  ‘keep wrapping’ by the anonymous passer-by and quickly turns back to the job at  hand – but not before rolling her eyes in irritation.

The incident  occurred during a visit to the Northside Center for Child Development in the  deprived Harlem district of New York

Joined by a group  of local grandmothers, the Duchess was helping to wrap presents destined for  some of the city’s poorest children.

Despite the rude  interruption, the Duchess appeared to enjoy the experience, with one local  telling MailOnline that she and Kate had spent the time ‘chatting like old  friends’.

Mary Dawkins, 71,  a grandmother of six from Harlem, also joined forces to hold down the paper  covering a doll, and stick the wrapping in place.

Afterwards, Mrs  Dawkins said: ‘We sat together wrapping gifts – she’s my girl. She said she has  to wrap gifts when she gets home.’

Kate’s display of  irritation was a rarity – the Duchess is not known for her temper or, indeed,  making any sort of fuss.

But while the  Duchess of Cambridge is rarely ruffled by the actions of well wishers or the  media, the same cannot be said for other members of the royal family.

In 2004, Prince  Harry became involved in a scuffle with photographers outside a nightclub after  they attempted to take pictures of him and his friends leaving the  venue.

The royal was  accused of similar behaviour three years later, this time in a bid to prevent  photos of him and then-girlfriend Chelsy Davy being taken.

Pro: The Duchess wasn't in the least put out by the second incident and allowed Mr James to hug her
