Life's a beach when you are the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge!

On yet another stop during their tour of Australia, the Duke and Duchess visited Manly Beach in Sydney. Prince William and Kate looked like they were having some fun when went to see the work and training done by the Surf Beach Lifeguards.

We can't tell a lie -- we are a little disappointed they aren't in their bathing suits!

Prior to their beach stop, the royals cheered up some young kids when they visited Bear Cottage, which the only children's hospice in New South Wales.

For the day's events, Kate wore a lace dress by Aussie label Zimermann with nude wedges. We are impressed she kept them on even on the sand!

It turns out the Prince has some thoughts about his duchess' fashion choices. Speaking on the yellow Roksanda Illinic dress she wore for her flight to Australia, Kate joked to reporters, “William said I look like a banana.”

Prince William and Kate Middleton are making headlines with their whirlwind tour of Australia. On Thursday, the duo visited the picturesque Echo Point in the Blue Mountains, north of Sydney on Thursday. Both wearing various shades of blue, it looks like the royal couple wanted to coordinate with their natural surroundings. Too cute!

During their mountainous stop, the duo met with residents and emergency workers who had been affected by the Blue Mountain bush fires in 2013. Prior to that, the Brits had lunch at Winmalee Guide Hall and then planted a tree with the Winmalee Girl Guides.

For the day's events, Kate wore a Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress and Stuart Weitzman wedges. Prince William donned blue slacks and a navy blazer.

That's all fine and great -- but we want more pics of that adorable chubby monkey Prince George!

The royals are in Australia -- cue the ABBA music!

On Wednesday, Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince George touched down in the land down under after their week and a half tour of New Zealand -- and the royal family couldn't be cuter!

Arriving in Sydney, the three looked picture perfect disembarking from their private plane. For the quick journey, Kate wore a bright and cheery asymmetrical Roksanda Illincic dress with nude heels. William wore his go-to look: a navy suit with a red tie. Little Prince George was outfitted in a nautical romper, reminiscent of one that Diana clothed Prince William in when he was a baby. We love that ode to Princess Diana!

Their first official engagement in Australia was at Sydney's famed Opera House, where William and Kate viewed the ICC Cricket World Cup, and were given cricket bats and a cap for Prince George.

During their eventful day, the couple stopped by Sydney Harbour Bridge. After that the family was taken across the water by boat to the the residence of the governor-general, who is Queen Elizabeth II's representative in Australia.

Can't wait to see what else is in store for the young family during their week and a half long tour of Australia!

We love us some royals!

Kate Middleton and Prince William played a bit of cricket with some local children when they attended a promotional event at Latimer Square in Christchurch, New Zealand on Monday. And boy, does it look like the duo are having a blast!

Despite wearing a red suit and heels, Kate proved her mettle and didn't let her buttoned-up ensemble impede her athletic endeavor. The 33-year-old mom has been kicking some butt during their three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. Last week, Kate made headlines when she beat Will in a sailing race through Auckland Harbour.

On the same day at the cricket event, the royal couple visited the city, which was devastated by an earthquake in 2011, and met families of victims at the CTV memorial site, viewed the semi-temporary Cardboard Cathedral.

Over the weekend, the duchess indirectly debunked pregnancy rumors by wine tasting with Prince William during a visit to a New Zealand vineyard on Sunday. In fact, she reportedly told the local wine-makers that she was "really enjoying being able to drink again after having baby George."

It looks like a new baby won't be joining the Royal Family any time soon.

Kate Middleton indirectly debunked pregnancy rumors by wine tasting with Prince William during a visit to a New Zealand vineyard on Sunday. In fact, she reportedly told the local wine-makers that she was "really enjoying being able to drink again after having baby George."

The Duchess, who looked preppy in a checkered blue collared shirt, blue blazer and skinny jeans, not only looked slimmer than ever, but sipped on wine during the tour of Amisfield Vineyard.

"The Duchess did take a little sip, but I don't think she's a big drinker," John Darby, the owner of the vineyard told reporters. "We nearly moved on without the Duke or Duchess having a glass of our wine, but [William] was keen to try it. He said, 'Hang on, let's enjoy a glass of wine. We can't pass up the opportunity.'"

However, Kate avoided alcohol on Thursday at the unveiling of Queen Elizabeth II's portrait at the Government House.

Prince William sparked pregnancy speculation on Friday when he hinted about having another child. While greeting a woman in Cambridge, New Zealand who had made a shawl for baby Prince George, the Duke said, "You might have to make another one soon." It looks like he was either just teasing or suggesting that his 8-month-old son is growing up fast.

They later visited a children's hospital and an aerospace museum during Friday's Cambridge trip.

Kate Middleton Beats Prince William In New Zealand Sailing Race

We are constantly impressed with Kate the Great!

After flying from Wellington to Aukland, New Zealand, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Auckland, Harbour and it appears as though the dashing duo raced against each other in two of the Americas Cup Team New Zealand yachts -- and it looks like Kate Middleton won!

Prior to the race, William joked to the media there would be some "healthy competition" between him and the wifey. The prince sailed with Team New Zealand manager Grant Dalton, and Middleton steered her yacht with Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker.

Kate, who was outfitted in a a Breton top from Me + Em, looked stylish helping the boat. The 32-year-old mom ended up finishing in first place for both races.

According to source, "William was a bit nervous at the start. These boats are very powerful and he just wanted to get on the grinder to begin with. When we wiped out because of the problem with the sail we were near to some rocks and William said, 'That'll be a good photo.' William was a good sailor but Kate pushed us around into a bad position. She did very well. William was very competitive right from the start—he didn't want to lose. When Kate won both the races he just said, 'At least she'll be happy.'"

The royals are really wowing in New Zealand!

The couple, who left eight-month-old baby George with nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo in Wellington, greeted people before the race and also opened up about the hardships of parenting. The 31-year-old prince admitted that the first five months of fatherhood was tough, but added that recently "things got a bit easier." Middleton spoke to another mother about dealing with William's long absences after George's birth due to work obligations, saying simply that she learned "to get by" without him there.

William recently retired from the RAF after serving for seven and a half years as a search and rescue pilot. It looks like Kate knows how to put her man in check!

For that meet and greet, Kate layered a double-breasted Zara jacket, over the striped top, J Brand mid-rise skinny leg navy cropped jeans and donned some kicky navy Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley wedges.

That duchess is stylin'!




Kate Middleton And Prince William Remind You That You WIll Never Be Royals

On the fourth day of their royal tour down under, Kate Middleton and Prince William managed to steal back some of the spotlight that their darling son grasped with his tiny baby hands.

Tthe royal couple were front and center for the unveiling of a new portrait of Queen Elizabeth II at the Government House in Wellington, New Zealand on Thursday.

For the ceremony, Kate wowed in a simple, custom Jenny Packham dress. Prince William made a speech during the unveiling and even spoke about his wee one's time in New Zealand, joking, “I swear I heard him doing the haka this morning." The haka is a loud and boisterous ancestral dance performed by the Maori -- and also at many rugby matches as it was adopted by the country's national rugby union team. William continued to joke, “I hope that George doesn’t keep you up! He’s a bonny lad and you’ll be pleased to know that he’s currently preparing for life as a prop forward!”

Later on that day, the duo also had quite the high-flying adventure when they visited the Omaka Heritage Centre, where Lord of the Rings director Sir Peter Jackson has a collection of World War One airplanes and memorabilia. William, who was a full-time pilot in the Royal Air Force's Search and Rescue Force for seven and a half years before retiring recently, certainly seemed at ease behind the vintage flying machine. Laughing and joking, both Wills and Kate seemed to get a kick out of the experience.

We might never be royals -- but we are so glad Kate and William are! We love this adorable couple!

Prince William and Kate Middleton who?! All we care about is Prince George!

The eight-month-old royal attended a parent and baby group with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge by his side -- and it was so cute we could just scream!

For the babytastic event, Kate wore a black and white geometric dress by Tory Burch. George, who tried standing much to the group's delight, was outfitted in a nautical romper.

The famous wee one met up with 10 other babies, who were all born within weeks of George. At one point during the playdate, the inquisitive future king reached out to one of the other children and also helped himself to other children's toys. Despite teething, George looks like he had a grand ole time!

The "playdate" was organized by The Royal New Zealand Plunket Society at Government House in Wellington during the royal family's official tour of New Zealand.

Kate Middleton and Prince William made headlines upon touching down in Wellington on Monday -- but of course George stole the show.
