The Duchess of Cambridge showed herself to be good sport as she took part in a speedy reaction game at Wimbledon - and it can't have been easy in heels.

In a clip on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's official Instagram, Kate could be seen playing a game which consisted of a device which flashed lights that needed to be hit as quickly as possible. The duchess gave it some welly, and broke away from royal protocol to add a fun and personal caption: "Hmmm how'd I do...?"

Royal fans were impressed by Kate's reaction speed, with many commenting that she did a great job, particularly as she was wearing heel.

The duchess was making an appearance at Wimbledon on the competition's fifth day, and was photographed sitting in the royal box next to retired tennis player Tim Henman and All England Lawn Tennis Club Chief Executive Sally Bolton.

She looked elegant in a navy and white Alessandra Rich polka-dot skirt, navy blazer and Jimmy Choo pumps.

The duchess is patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club, after taking over the role from the Queen in 2016.

The 39-year-old royal is a huge fan of tennis and usually attends the tournament each year, although last year it was postponed due to the pandemic. The duchess also missed it when she was expecting Prince George in 2013, and previously explained in a documentary celebrating the championships: "I was very heavily pregnant with George so I wasn't able to turn up.

"I know but even still, I sort of was there… 'maybe I could go' but the doctors were like 'definitely not.' I wrote to [Andy Murray] afterwards saying 'sorry for not being there, but huge congratulations.'"
