However, speaking about her brush with royalty, Kellie said: “I did think what amazing sports that they are just willing to do it.

“I just thought wow, they’ve never done anything like this before.

“They didn’t really know what to expect, I mean it must have been nerve wracking for them and completely out of their norm. So I just hope they enjoyed it as much as we did!”
