What a great sport Duchess Kate is! Although the Duchess of Cambridge is showing her support for the 2012 Summer Games by cheering on Great Britain's athletes, she recognizes talent when she's it and doesn't mind giving credit where credit is due.
Kate, 30, was so impressed with the U.S. women's Olympic gymnastics team that she met with the gold-winning Fab Five on Sunday to offer her congratulations.
Gabby Douglas, Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman and Kyla Ross were watching their teammate McKayla Maroney win the silver medal at the vault finals and the duchess, who was also taking in the event, unexpectedly walked over to the girls and chatted with them.
They were beyond excited, and Aly Tweeted, "Just met princess Kate with @jordyn_wieber @kyla_ross96 & @gabrielledoug she is so beautiful & so nice! I told her I loved her style lol :)."
"Can't believe I just met Princess Kate Middleton! She was in the crowd at the competition and she stood up to talk to us! #honored," Jordyn told her Twitter followers.
The only person on the team who didn't meet England's most famous royal was McKayla, because she was busy kicking butt in her event.
