Princess Charlotte sticks tongue out at crowds, Kate Middleton's reaction is priceless

Princess Charlotte sticks tongue out at crowds, Kate Middleton's reaction is priceless

The couple are competing against a host of celebrities, including comedian John Bishop and adventurer Bear Grylls, on a cloudy but relatively calm day around Cowes. Kate was hilariously presented with a giant wooden spoon for her loss.

Prince William's boat finished in joint third overall and Kate came last in the two-race event off the Isle of Wight yesterday.

In the second race, a raft of boats - including Kate's - were disqualified for not going back and starting the race at the line.

The race is a charity event, which sees eight boats compete to win The King's Cup.

Later in the morning Kate changed into a white polo shirt and navy shorts, matching William, 36, who wore the same uniform ensemble.

George's sister Princess Charlotte, 4, watched as well, goofing off with her mom after the races concluded.

COWES, ENGLAND - AUGUST 08: Prince George attends the King's Cup Regatta on August 08, 2019 in Cowes, England. Picture: Getty Princess Charlotte was also on the boat with her grandfather. Charlotte leaned forward and stuck out her tongue, much to the shock of her mother and the delight of the crowd.

William's charities that competed were: Child Bereavement UK, Centrepoint, the London Air Ambulance Charity 30th Anniversary Campaign, and Tusk.

Kicking off the morning, Kate, 37, opted for a striped top and casual navy pants as she arrived, accessorising with dainty heart earrings by Kiki McDonough and a casual pair of white trainers by the brand, Superga.

But today's event is in the name of charity, with the yachts representing causes close to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's hearts.

William took the honours again during a visit to the German city of Heidelberg in 2017 when he was victorious in a riverboat race against his wife.

The duke and duchess hope the King's Cup regatta will become an annual event, increasing awareness of the benefits of sport, while also raising funds for their charities.
