The Duchess of Cornwall has shown off her table tennis skills at the 2018 Gold Coast  Commonwealth Games.

On a recent trip to the Athlete’s Village, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla decided to flex their sporting side and put a table tennis table to use.

Lucy Turnbull, the Australian Prime Minister’s wife, was the Duchess’ partner for the spot of Gossamer. No word on who won the encounter.

The Prince of Wales was also recently spotted behind a table having a good old bash of wiff-waff. Prince Charles gave a young Tuvalu athlete a game amongst the press and paparazzi.

With Britain being the birthplace of table tennis, it’s no wonder the Royals have shown an interest in the sport on their Australian tour.
