Kate Middleton Wears Nautical Stripes As She Launches King’s Cup Sailing Regatta with Prince William

The royal family is having an extremely busy week following the birth of the royal baby.

And while they’re probably desperate to meet their new nephew, Kate Middleton and Prince William are carrying out an official engagement at the Cutty Sark, a British clipper ship presented as part of a museum in South London.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are launching The King’s Cup, a sailing regatta which will take place off the coast of the Isle of Wight in August 2019. The royals themselves will even take part, making this launch event even more important. For the launch, Kate wore nautical stripes.

Per @Gertsroyals, “Prince William & Duchess Kate will officially launch The King’s Cup regatta at an event at Cutty Sark. They will meet with people from their chosen charities & participate in a simulated sailing race, before unveiling the trophy.”

Royal commentator Emily Andrews noted on Twitter, “William & Kate will race each other on sailing simulators today, ahead of the regatta in the summer. When I last saw the couple race each other in NZ, Kate won, much to Wills’ chagrin.”

According to the royal family’s official website, “The Duke and Duchess go head to head as skippers of individual sailing boats, in an eight boat regatta race. The winning team will be awarded The King’s Cup, a historic trophy first presented by King George V at Cowes’ Royal Yacht Squadron in 1920.” Basically, Kate and William plan to compete in a sailing race this summer, which is more than a little exciting.
