Today the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took to the waters in the inaugural regatta The King’s Cup to raise awareness and funds for eight of Their Royal Highnesses’ patronages.
The Duke and Duchess arrived this afternoon at the Isle of Wright for a day of competition. The race, originally scheduled for Friday, was moved up a day due to the expected poor weather conditions.
The Duke and Duchess made a quick change before meeting with the charity ambassadors. They then hopped on their respective boats and were off for the races.
In the first of two races, the Duke’s boat took 3rd while the Duchess finished in 7th. The second races saw the Duchess disqualified for starting too early and the Duke finishing in 3rd again. It was Bear Grylls for Tusk who took the trophy.
The Duke and Duchess two eldest children were in attendance to watch their parents go head-to-head. Prince George and Princess Charlotte watched from another boat alongside their grandparents- Michael and Carole Middleton.
The Duchess arrived wearing a new top from Sandro which she paired with her LK Bennett trousers, Superga trainers and Kiki McDonough earrings. She later changed into a new pair of New Balance trainers to race in.
