Kate Middleton may be a poised and elegant princess, but that doesn’t mean she can’t down a seriously strong shot of whiskey from time to time. The Duchess proved just how much of a boss she is at a bar in Cornwall on Sept 1. See these impressive pics!
What can we say? The princess knows how to hold her liquor! Princess Kate, 34, stepped out in Cornwall with Prince William, 34, on the first day of their two-day trip to Cornwall and Scilly Isles of England to tend to some royal business, and the day started out innocently enough.
After fulfilling their duties — which included meeting with the clergy at Truro Cathedral and visiting the Zebs Youth Centre — the couple strolled over to a local bar, Healey’s Cyder Warehouse, for a bite to eat and drink in honor of its 30-year anniversary.

Things started off pretty slow for the royal couple, with Kate pouring a pint of the bar’s famous alcoholic Rattler cider. “I’ve never mastered this,” she admitted while trying to pour the drinks, according to PEOPLE. Then Kate and the prince proceeded to taste-test their way through six different drinks. That’s when things got a little crazy!
As part of the royal treatment, owner Joe Healey pulled out his special stash of ciders that had matured into an assortment of whiskey, brandy, and rum. Prince William seemed to be a tad scared, saying, “Rum?! This is where the engagement really goes downhill!” In the end, he took a swig of the strong shot. But when it was Kate’s turn, she gulped the shot down in one swallow! OMG! “Delicious,” she exclaimed. Yep, you read it right. The Duchess of Cambridge took a shot of 60% ABV-proof, whiskey and didn’t even flinch. We should just put Kate Middleton under “boss” in the dictionary!
Following the taste testing, Kate and William unveiled the plaque, cut the cake, and signed visitor’s books all in celebration of the milestone anniversary. This had to be a pleasant change of pace from caring for her two children, Prince George, 3, and Princess Charlotte, 1, of Cambridge. But we don’t think she’ll be taking whiskey shots as part of her regular diet.
HollywoodLifers, could you down a shot of whiskey like Kate?
