Kate Middleton Tests Her Reaction Speed in New IG Video (& She's Impressively Quick)

Kate Middleton has always been a big Wimbledon fan and just a few days ago, the royal made her triumphant return to the sporting event. After almost two years away from the tennis competition, she was all smiles as she showed up in a blue blazer and polka-dot skirt set from Alessandra Rich layered over a white tee.

Besides watching the matches, the Duchess of Cambridge was also assisting the All England Lawn Tennis Club in the kitchen, in a gesture of thanks for all the work they have done during the pandemic. But while Middleton may not have gotten to play any tennis, she still participated in a fun game while she was there.

In a video shared to Instagram, the royal is seen playing at a Reaction Station that asks: “How fast are you?” The purpose of the game is for the player to stand in front of a board of lights and tap whichever one lights up as quickly as possible. The duchess shared a video of herself playing and said, “Hmmm how’d I do...? #Wimbledon.”

We couldn't help but be impressed by the duchess's quick reflexes (especially while standing in that pair of white heels). While there were a few moments where it took her a second to find the light, it seems that followers were wowed by her skills as well.

One commenter said, “I think pretty good for someone in heels,” while another added, “Only you could look so graceful playing this.” A different user made a good point by commenting, “She’s a mum. Reaction times will be off the chart.”

We love to see that the duchess is always game for anything.
