The Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge In Cowes For The King's Cup

The Duke and Duchess Of Cambridge In Cowes For The King's Cup

Prince George, six, and Princess Charlotte, four, wore nautical-inspired outfits as they watched their parents compete against each other from a separate boat with their grandparents, Michael and Carole Middleton.

Kate's reaction to her daughter's mischievous moment was priceless as she laughed, quickly ushering Charlotte away from the window.

The event was held off the Isle of Wight and was brought forward a day due to the weather forecast.

Members of the public watched the race which was won by explorer Bear Grylls.

Kate knelt down to point out the people to Charlotte and seemingly suggested she wave to them.

The royals were taken on by a host of celebrities at the star-studded sailing regatta, including comedian John Bishop (for ActionAddiction), BBC presenter Katie Thistleton (who was supporting Place2Be) and Olympic Champion rower Helen Glover (who was representing the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families).

Princess Charlotte had some fun with photographers and well-wishers on Tuesday at the King's Cup Regatta.


During the prize-giving ceremony, Kate graciously collected a giant wooden spoon - the prize designated for the captain whose team finished last.

William finished the race third, while Kate finished seventh, or second to last.

Duchess Catherine was disqualified from a boat race on Thursday (08.08.19).

The race started 30 minutes late - at 14:30 BST - after the boats were recalled to the starting line after an initial false start.

The yachts represented causes supported by William and Kate. However, William did place higher than Kate, giving him bragging rights around the palace!

The royals are hosting the inaugural regatta The King's Cup to raise awareness and funds for eight of Their Royal Highnesses' patronages.

The duchess was the skipper for the Royal Foundation, while the duke competed for Child Bereavement UK.
