Kate Middleton, 40, looked gorgeous while taking the high seas on July 31! The Duchess of Cambridge wore a navy blue sweater with white stripes and white shorts with gold buttons as she attended the Great Britain Sail Grand Prix in Plymouth in Devon. She had her hair down and topped her look off with white sneakers as she accessorized with small hoop earrings.
The beauty smiled and waved to cameras as she took part in the event, which was a friendly “Commonwealth Race” between Team Great Britain and New Zealand around the south coast of England. Once she wowed with her appropriate outfit, she changed into a GBR wetsuit and gray cap before then joining Sir Ben Ainslie, the most successful sailor in Olympic history, and the rest of the Great Britain crew. She first met Ben at the 2012 London Olympics, where he won his fourth Olympic gold medal.
Before she boarded the watercraft, Kate also reportedly met with young people while taking part in the 1851 Trust’s activities to promote sustainability. It was then that the group learned about seagrass, which is one of the most important natural tools to counter damage to climates, and made seagrass mats to be planted off Plymouth South, which is supposed to help improve marine health and contribute to blue carbon capture, according to PEOPLE. Since Kate’s a royal patron of the 1851 trust, which aims at inspiring young people to explore science and technology, her visit and participation was a memorable one.
While Kate was having fun at the sailing event, her husband, Prince William, made an appearance at the 2022 Euro final. Before the competition, he took to Twitter to share an adorable video with his daughter Princess Charlotte, whom he shares with Kate. They both sent words of encouragement to the England women’s soccer team, in the clip.
“We both want to wish the Lionesses the best of luck tonight,” William said. “You’ve done amazingly well in the competition and we’re rooting for you all the way.” Charlotte followed up her dad’s message with her own words, which included, “Good luck, I hope you win! Bye.”
