Kate Middleton Gets Awarded Giant Wooden Spoon In Charity Sailing Race As Her Kids Watch On

Prince George and Princess Charlotte were Prince William and Kate Middleton’s biggest cheerleaders as the royal couple took part in an eight-boat sailing regatta on the Isle of Wight Thursday.

Middleton definitely looked the part as she set sail in a cap, jacket, and shorts for the inaugural King’s Cup race around Cowes, with her son George, 6, looking adorable in a sailor’s hat and a striped shirt.

Middleton’s parents Michael and Carole watched from a separate boat.

The race, which the royals had to reschedule from Friday due to bad weather, is being held to raise awareness and funds for eight of their royal highnesses’ patronages.

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 charities being represented this year include Child Bereavement UK, Centrepoint, London’s Air Ambulance Charity 30th Anniversary Campaign, and Tusk — four of which are the duke’s patronages.
