Duchess of Cambridge pool-playing skills deemed 'dreadful'

LONDON — The Duchess of Cambridge has shown off her pool-playing skills — though one teenager was not impressed.

Visiting a mental health center for children in South Wales on Wednesday, the former Kate Middleton spent time talking to children and teens with mental health issues before picking up a pool cue.

Kate, who wore a burgundy suit paired with knee-high boots, impressed in the style stakes — but her pool skills left much to be desired.

Craig Davies, a 15-year-old teenager at the center, described her pool playing as "dreadful."

The duchess became royal patron of children's charity Action for Children in December when Queen Elizabeth II passed on some of her responsibilities due to her advancing age.
