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'!
