The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have arrived on the Isle of Wight to compete in the King’s Cup.
Because of the bad weather, The King’s Cup regatta sailing race, which was to be held Aug. 9, was moved forward one day.
For the event, Kate wore a stripy knitted t-shirt by Sandro and matched it with a pair of high-waisted navy tailored trousers from L.K Bennet.
She wore a stylish look, but it was her new hairstyle which caught attention as she showed she is going lighter for summer with new highlights. Kate also appeared to be sporting a deep tan following their holiday to Mustique.
Ahead of the race, Kate changed into navy shorts and a white polo T-shirt for a photo with William and The King’s Cup charity ambassadors.
William and Kate are set to go head-to-head as skippers of individual sailing boats in in the yachting regatta.
The event’s held with the goal of raising awareness and funds for eight of the Duke and Duchess’ charitable causes.
They will battle it out for the The King’s Cup trophy, a historical cup first presented by King George V at Cowes’ Royal Yacht Squadron in 1920.
Prince William will lead Child Bereavement UK team. His other choices are Centrepoint which will be represented by England football international Fara Williams, Tusk whose boat will be led by Bear Grylls and the London’s Air Ambulance Charity which will be led by historian and author, Dan Snow, to its crew.
Kate chose four of her patronages and will compete on behalf of the Royal Foundation.
The other patronages are the Anna Freud Centre represented by Helen Glover, comedian John Bishop will go for Action on Addiction and TV presenter, Kate Thistleton, will be part of the crew representing Place2Be.
Members of the public are invited to watch the race and prize giving ceremony from the SailGP Race Village, which includes a 500-seater grandstand.
