Steven Bough (chairman of Maidenhead Rugby Club) also commended the princess’s athleticism. “She’s obviously been practicing,” he said. “Her ball skills and passing skills are very good. She was there, blending in playing as one of the team. To be honest, I didn’t realize she was there half the time.”

Is there anything she can’t do?
