Prince William is not impressed!

The Duke of Cambridge was photographed on Wednesday with an expression similar to what made Team USA gymnast McKayla Maroney an Internet sensation.

After losing the gold medal in the vault finals at the Summer Games in London, Maroney’s less-than-thrilled mug spoke volumes about settling for the silver.

Maroney told the Hollywood Reporter: “I’m just really focused and really serious, I guess, and I think it’s really funny, that Tumblr. It makes them and me laugh all the time.”

After hosting the Olympic Games, William and Kate, both 30, are currently attending events at the Paralympic Games. The young royals were spotted at Wednesday night’s Opening Ceremonies, then cheered on the athletes at some of the very first events of the Games on Thursday.
