GREAT PICS William and Kate in sailing regatta as kids watch on

The siblings were spotted earlier in the day out on a boat cheering on their parents as they were skippers on competing boats in the King's Cup Regatta on the Isle of Wight in England.

The royals were taken on by a host of celebrities at the star-studded sailing regatta, including comedian John Bishop (for ActionAddiction), BBC presenter Katie Thistleton (who was supporting Place2Be) and Olympic Champion rower Helen Glover (who was representing the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families).

Emily also noted that Prince William and Kate's youngest child Prince Louis was also on the Isle of Wight for the event. She peered out from the window and stuck her tongue out at the crowd, leaving mum Kate having a minor freakout.

Kate and Prince William both competed separately in the yacht race, with Charlotte and her older brother Prince George watching on from another boat with Kate's parents, Michael, 70, and Carole Middleton, 64.

"And also Prince George, your first ant you ate today".

A photograph published by Kensington Palace shows Mr Kenny on stage as Bear Grylls accepted the trophy form the royal couple - however the social media posts makes no mention of the ex-Taoiseach.

Pilgrimage is also the backbone of a Saudi plan to expand tourism under a drive to diversify the kingdom's economy away from oil. This state of "ihram", or spiritual purity, is intended for pilgrims to focus on the inner self over their outward appearance.


William was racing on behalf of Child Bereavement UK, and his charities, Centrepoint, London's Air Ambulance Charity 30th Anniversary campaign, and Tusk were represented by Fara Williams, historian Dan Snow, and Grylls respectively.

Prince George wore a navy and white Breton polo T-shirt with beige shorts and Princess Charlotte wore a light blue and white striped summer dress.

Kate was handed a giant wooden spoon for coming last at the King's Cup yachting regatta.

Grylls's team on behalf of Tusk won the The King's Cup, while Prince William's team came in a very respectable third.

The message said: "The eight boats taking part in The King's Cup will each represent one of the charities that are being supported this year by Their Royal Highnesses".
