The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended The King’s Cup

On August 8, 2019, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took part in the regatta The King’s Cup to raise awareness and funds for eight of their charity patronages. The event took place on waters around Cowes on the Isle of Wight. The Duke and Duchess each skippered their own yachts. The Duchess of Cambridge chose four of her patronages and competed on behalf of the Royal Foundation, in connection with her work on the early years development of children. The Duke of Cambridge competed on behalf of Child Bereavement UK. Eight yachts represented causes supported by The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. At the event, The Duke and Duchess competed with each other as skippers of individual sailing boats, in an eight boat regatta race.

  3. Great photos. I always think that D. Catherine looks happiest in casual, sporty attire. (V.M.)

  4. Wearing shorts when everyone is wearing trousers. I imagine the comments would this have been Meghan. The server would explode.

    2. 4 wearing shorts and 4 wearing trousers, perhaps her team was wearing shorts. And those legs are gorgeous, she should show them more often

    3. Why such a comment Ann08:29? This isn't any kind of competition between Kate and Meghan!!! Why do people keep comparing the too of them?

      Btw, she wasn't the only one wearing shorts!

    4. LOL, and William too! What on earth were they thinking? (irony)

      They all look gorgeous and at their best!

    6. Anon 8 29. I generally try not to respond to these posts but really? What mean comment. I think we may have seen Crown Princesses Victoria and Mary in shorts recently. And what on earth has it to do with Meghan?

      Delete
    7. Yes, I agree. If Meghan had been the one wearing shorts, the comments would have been numerous and mean-spirited. So unfair what Meghan has had to endure.

    8. I actually find her leg spreading pic not flattering at all. Very masculine legs. Kate laughed when her daughter stuck her tongue out, but I would be embarrassed if my daughter did that because kids are honest and they often reflect how their parents feel about people in general. Letizia's daughtes are the most well behaved royal kids. Bravo Letizia.

    9. This is a sportive event, and it happens that you spread your legs, especially on a boat to keep stable. I would be extremely happy to have her legs, they are just perfect. The photo of Charlotte sticking her tongue out is fun, she ois probably teasing her brother. Stop being so judgemental.

  5. Lovely day out for this super cute family. The duchess is such a good sport. The duke and their children are too adorable

  6. Charlotte really looks like Lady Chatto, the queen's niece. But why is she wearing a school uniform? schools are off for holidays

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Where do you see a school uniform? She wears a Ralph Lauren Summer dress white and blue with a navy touch. Perfect for the occasion and the weather. She looks super cute in it and has become a 'big' girl. The whole family looks so relaxed on this sports event. It's a joy to see them so happy.

    2. Beth - it is just a summer dress but it is very similar to many school uniform summer dresses worn here in the UK so I understand the observation.

      However, if it were really uniform it would almost all the time have sleeves, and is usually a fine check rather than stripes.

      Agree that there is a resemblance to Lady Sarah Chatto.

  7. In my humble opinion little Princess Charlotte looks very much like her great-grandmother, the Queen.(picture 12) - And I am sure, this is a very lovely, maritime summerdress, not a school-uniform.
    Duchess Kate looks stunning:sportive, slim but strong. Looks like they all had a fine day. Who would'nt!

    1. I see as well also resemblance mainly to the Queen. But this may still change over the years.

  8. Oh I love pic 13 and 14 of P. Charlotte, this cute little girl with a joke in it's neck and sticking out her tongue. A little girl like all the others, not at all princesslike for official dates but wonderfully refreshing at this event :)
    Duchess Kate has wonderful legs in very good shape, but IMO she can gain a little bit more weight, she is sooo slim.
    All in all beautiful relaxed and happy looking people

    1. Why do you want a slim, healthy, strong woman, who is obviously good in sports, loves to be outdoors and move the body want to gain weight? I will never get these comments. Look at her face, look at her healthy hair, she is glowing and shining, a woman in her late thirties can't look any better.

    2. I could not agree more with you, Beth..... And imagine someone saying the opposite about some other royal “she could lose a little weight ...... oh, oh, that would cause a storm...... Catherine is slim, very nicely and toned.... but we are all accustomed nowadays to seeing overweight women and girls and brainwashed into finding that normal....

    4. There is nothing wrong with being slim, Kate has always looked like this, she is very sporty, therefore muscular just like her mother and sister.

  10. Lovely pictures of a lovely family. Wonderful to see how happy and relaxed they look, enjoying each other's company and genuinely having fun. Very nice! Charlotte lively and outgoing as always, she is a beautiful girl. George cute and sweet, but in my opinion, he looks a bit tired.
    I think this is the first time we see Kate wearing shorts. I'm not very fond of them, but with her amazing figure and tanned legs, she can have it. I wish I had a figure like her! ;-)

  11. Lovely family photos, though I disagree that Charlotte sticking her tongue out is cute. Like her dress though I can see why someone thought it was a school dress, though it’s a much nicer cut than most school dresses. I generally don’t see family similarities in small children that others think are obvious but I too think that she looks very like the Queen as a young girl, except for the hair of course. And thanks to whoever mentioned Lady Sarah Chatto. She is indeed very like her photos at a similar age. I had not noticed before.

    1. AnnieM, I also do not think Charlotte sticking her tongue out is cute. She is a child but in her family and milieu is old enough to know better.
      I do agree with posters who noted a resemblance to the Queen and Sarah Chatto. And I love Charlotte's blue and white striped dress.

      Delete
    2. I understand what you both mean, AnnieM and Pine, but lots of people found it so funny and cute when a little prince Harry was sticking out his tongue...
      I know they are Royals and that Charlotte lives in a certain milieu, but she is also a very lively and outgoing child; so I'm afraid you can't always prevent these spontaneous moments.

      Delete
    3. Re Charlotte's "tongue" incident: Perhaps the photographers stuck their tongues out at her (like they did when William & Harry were small) OR somebody told Charlotte to stick out her tongue OR Charlotte is sticking out her tongue to e.g. her dad. We don't know why Charlotte did that; but her mother's reaction seems to indicate that it was all in fun.

    4. AnnieM she is a child for goodness sake.
      Did you never stick your tongue out, or show me One child that has not.

    5. Lady Diana looked horrified when Harry did that..

  12. Nice to see royals using shorts, mini dress, cleavages or anything else that normally are banished just because men, and some women, can't see a little of skin without having indecorous thoughts.
    In this case its practical and comfortable why would she not wear shorts?
    Bad weather and so, if she feel more comfortable doing sports with shorts even with bad weather no one should cares even if she was the only one wearing it.
    But she is showing her legs, and what, everyone have legs even if someone, not me, think she or anyone else have ugly legs that it's just personal point of view... something that it's ugly for me could be beautiful for anyone else.
    I respect anyone that may not have the same opinion, but I prefer to see royals as any other person, they have their "job" so they should fit to that but it's completely impossible to be "OK" for everyone.

  13. New photos added. Catherine looks perfect in these flared cut trousers and fun top. I always love to see her in modern age fitting clothes. She looks much more herself.

  14. Catherine looks amazing in the Sandro top and L.K. Bennett pants (and imo few women could wear those pants successfully). An imaginative and inspired outfit for the occasion, well done!

  15. She looks fabulous, healthy, happy and fit. Love her in shorts, and also with the second outfit, what a cute top!!
    It's heartwarming to see this happy family.

  17. Do like the navy pant, but not so much the striped top, to me this top looks something teenagers would wear. Little Charlotte must not have liked what someone said, so she show'd her tongue, oh well she is a little more outgoing than her brother George.

    1. @7:35 - We do not know the full story of Charlotte's tongue incident. It looks like it was all in fun and not something naughty or stuck-up on Charlotte's part. Perhaps it was a response to someone jokingly doing it to her.

  18. It makes no difference if a child is 'royal' or Mrs. Everybody's child, sticking out the tongue is rude.

  19. I'm happy to see the new pictures posted. Kate looks so young and fresh in the Sandro top and L.K. Bennett pants. I don't think the top can be worn successfully by many, but Kate is one that can. She has the figure for it. She has paired it well with those yummy pants. The top doesn't hide the button detail, which is one of the things I love about them. The length and width are perfect for her.

    Charlotte's Ralph Lauren is adorable. It's a nice change from her typical smocked dress. Regarding the comments above, I don't think Charlotte sticking her tongue out is something to get so worked up about. I have watched the video, and if it wasn't for a photographer's zoom lense, it would be difficult to know what had happened. Is it possible that at age 4, little Charlotte has figured out that the other kids do not have people following them and taking their pictures everytime they leave their homes? She isn't doing anything that the children she goes to school with, or any other child her age (including her father, Uncle Harry, and her brother) haven't done as well. I am sure she is receiving the proper guidance at home, and will not grow up to be a menace to society.

    1. Let's put it this way, because Charlotte is who she is, it's cute, if the mailman's child did it, it was rude.

    2. Eeh, well...no. in my context if a child Charlotte's age -and that's the relevant point- sticks his tongue out it's seen as funny. Nobody would be concerned or offended.

  20. The combination of top and trousers looks odd. I like both pieces but together on Kate they unsuccessful outfit.

  21. Duchess Catherine is one of the most beautiful royal women and will be without any question. Most of her fashion choices are total save. Today she is experimenting a bit and did not met my personal taste with these two different peaces. I think they do not go together.

    I just saw some pics from a friend, who was involved with the interior fittings but that was plenty years ago.
