When Will We Next See The Duchess Of Cambridge?

The Duchess of Cambridge is set to return to official royal duties this autumn. Currently, she’s on a well-deserved break. But, Kate will make an exception and we’ll see her on August 9th.

On Sunday, Kate and her husband William will host The King’s Cup sailing regatta. The King’s Cup will take place on the Isle of Wight, with Kate and William each acting as skippers of competing boats and hoping to win the King’s Cup, a historic trophy first presented by King George V at Cowes’ Royal Yacht Squadron in 1920.

The royal family’s website explains: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will host the inaugural regatta The King’s Cup in summer 2019 to raise awareness and funds for eight of Their Royal Highnesses’ patronages.

“The event, which will take place on Friday 9th August on the Isle of Wight, will see 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.”

The Palace confirmed the exciting news in July. The tweet read: “In August, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will go head to head as skippers of individual sailing boats in an eight boat regatta race, in support of Their Royal Highnesses’ charitable causes.”

Kate will compete for the Royal Foundation, while William will lead his team on behalf of his patronage Child Bereavement UK.

They will be joined by Helen Glover, Olympic champion rower who will represent the Anna Freud Centre, BBC presenter Katie Thistleton for Place2Be, television presenter Dan Snow for London’s Air Ambulance Charity, stand-up comedian John Bishop for Action on Addiction, England women’s footballer Fara Williams for Centrepoint, and adventurer Bear Grylls for wildlife conservation organisation Tusk.
