A Princess Pour: Kate Middleton Jumps Behind the Bar to Serve Beer in Belfast

Is it Friday yet? It sure seems that way for Kate Middleton and Prince William, who were serving up beers last night in Belfast.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge embarked on a two-day royal tour of Northern Ireland on Wednesday. After an athletic day of soccer, canoeing and archery, Kate and Will did a quick outfit change, then made their way to the Empire Music Hall in Belfast in their finest barback attire.

And, surprise surprise: This is way fancier than we've ever dressed for a bar. 

Middleton wore a mint-green sheer-sleeved Missoni dress with mini pleats and nude heels, while Prince William donned a navy suit and white button-down. The royal mom of three jumped behind the bar and poured a pint of Harp Lager.

The Cambridges were at Empire Music Hall to celebrate young people making a difference in Northern Ireland in the business, arts and sport sectors, and their evening was capped off with a performance by the band LARKS.

By the looks of it, William is impressed that he out-poured his wife (judging by the foam "head" of her beer versus his). But Kate's pour had a little more gusto, so it's hard to say who won this challenge.

As with everything royals-related We think Queen Elizabeth should have the final word.
