Kate Middleton is the most athletic royal — this can be easily proved. Anyone who plays sports in heels and gracefully reject athleisure should get a royal title for athleticism. And apparently Queen Liz agrees; she has officially passed on the title of patron of Wimbledon to Kate, reports the International Business Times.

What does the patron of Wimbledon do exactly? And can she do it in heels? Well, obviously, this is not a real question when it comes to the Duchess of Cambridge, because if it can be classified as a sport (e.g., darts), the woman will do it in formal wear.

Mainly, this title means that Kate will be charged with presenting the tournament stars with winners trophies.

Apparently, 80-year-old Duke of Kent (the queen's cousin) has been doing this for the past 40 years. Before the sportiest royal takes over in her heels, the Duke will get to bestow the honors one more time.

But after that, Sporty Kate will do her thing. After all, it's her job now.
