The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge do know how to juggle and showed everyone just how good they are at doing it during their visit to Ireland. 


Anyone who thinks they are good at juggling should try the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for size. The Kensington Royals' display of their juggling abilities, especially that of William, was both amazing and surreal, to say the least. 

The Royal Couple recently joined the Galway Circus, which would be hosting the European Capital of Culture on behalf of Ireland, for a sport of juggling.

William and Kate shared a photograph on their official Instagram page, which showed the Duke of Cambridge juggling three white balls, while his wife, impressed with what she was witnessing, cheered him on. 

In the caption to their post, the couple said that the European Capital of Culture was a showcase of events highlighting the rich cultural diversity of Ireland, as well as its proud history of artistic endeavor. The caption also read:

"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a special event at Tribeton featuring several #Galway2020 acts, including Livefeed, Hoops and the Galway Community Circus, and met performers."


ABC News also shared a video of Prince William juggling the three balls, and if not for his suit, he could have been mistaken for a professional juggler. 

Fans of the Kensington Royals were impressed with their skillful display and simplicity and commented on their post. One fan said they loved the way William and Kate are always up for anything. 

This led to the balls flying in every direction, including one ball that went straight to Kate.


Another fan said the post was too funny, adding that William and Kate were great, and loved. Another fan noticed how relaxed the couple were, and said, "They look super relaxed and in love." 

Though William has impressive juggling skills, he flopped when he tried to do too much. The Prince was great with three balls, but when he added a fourth ball, he couldn't handle the pressure. 

This led to the balls flying in every direction, including one ball that went straight to Kate. That aside, Galway Circus can call on him to represent them when the 2020 Capital of Culture begins.

The visit to the Galway Circus came on the final day of William and Kate's trip to Ireland. It also marked their first official visit to the country. 

After the Galway circus visit, the Royals are also expected to stop at a pub owned by a traditional family named Tig Coili, where they would meet with local people who have volunteered to promote the city.

They would also engage in a walkabout, where they would meet and interact with people on the streets. William and Kate's last act of the visit was to a local Gaelic Athletic Association. 

There, the couple would learn about some of the traditional sports played all over Ireland, including Gaelic football and hurling.
