Kate Middleton is in New York City at the moment with her husband, William, who may someday inherit a British royal title that’s been passed from aristocrat to aristrocrat since someone seized it by force in 1688. Middleton visited a child development center in Harlem on Monday. And according to the Telegraph, the children there were not quite sure who she was:

Rose Ann Harris, director of early childhood services at the Northside Center for Child Development, said of the children: “They thought she was the Princess from Frozen.

“When they heard she was coming they thought it was Elsa - we said a Princess and they got a Princess.”

If you think about it, there’s not that much difference between a fictional princess and a “real” princess. Close enough!
