Who would dare to diss the duchess?

Jessica Ennis, if you believe the British tabloids. The heptathlon Olympic great was presented with an award by Kate Middleton at the BBC's Sports Personality of the Year Awards on Sunday, and she didn't accept the pregnant princess's extended hand.

In a clip from the show, Kate, 30, and Jessica, 26, are both seen smiling and chatting with each other on the stage. After Prince William's wife hands the athlete her heavy-looking trophy, she can be seen attempting a handshake.

Jessica, however, doesn't reciprocate Kate's kind gesture, and the ravishing royal plays it cool. The mum-to-be keeps smiling, then gracefully lowers her hand.

If you ask us, Jessica had her hands full and didn't even notice Kate's attempted congratulatory handshake.

Moral of the story? Don't leave anyone hanging, much less the future king's wife!

Kate Middleton, Jessica Ennis
