Kate Middleton tries her hand at an Olympic sport.
Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.
In an Olympic season already notorious for tedium (a 10-minute segment on the construction of the beach vollyball court? Really, CTV?) this might count as a highlight, if only of democratic irony.
Her Royal Highness Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (the former Kate Middleton, the future Queen of England), was GIF’ed as she tried her hand at the revered sport of table tennis. Wearing a $55 mass-market dress and sensible wedges, she, her husband, and brother-in-law Prince Harry opened a sports center at Bacon’s College on Friday.
Something tells us the Chinese team has nothing to fear.
It’s a game more difficult than it looks, as the sporty princess failed to return ball after ball. When she finally did return a shot, she couldn’t refrain from giving herself an enthusiastic double up-Fonz. Her Royal Fans at the Kate Middleton FTW Tumblr would no doubt high-10 her, provided they could do so from a curtseying position.
