E! Online reports that, while watching McKayla Maroney compete in the individual vault, the other four girls that make up the Fab Five were approached by Duchess Catherine herself.
Here are some tweets the team sent out after Kate stood up from her seat to personally congratulate them:

Can’t believe I just met Princess Kate Middleton! She was in the crowd at the competition and she stood up to talk to us!

How very gracious of Kate to compliment them! But who could resist? Those Swarovski-encrusted numbers are fabulous. Needless to say, we’re jealous.
