A number of thoughts crossed the mind when Kate appeared onstage to hand over the gongs for BBC Sports Personality of The Year last night. The first was, "Oooh, green." Followed "Don't puke, don't puke, don't puke". Followed by "Christ, she's taller than David Beckham." Which was in turn followed by "She's effectively been banned from hugging or kissing anyone in public ever again, that's a bit rubbish."

When Bradley Wiggins took to the stage to pick up Sports Personality of the Year, he whirl-winded round the stage in his velvet suit and modfather hair, hugging, kissing everything in his path, apart from the Duchess, who had to make do with a handshake. Still, it was more physical action than what third place recipient Andy Murray got off Lennox Lewis... Hilarious.
