The eight boats taking part in next month’s Cowes regatta on the Isle of Wight will each represent one of the charities being supported by the couple this year.

The pair have often advocated sport, undertaking work to highlight the positive impact it can have.

And this will not be the first time they have indulged in sport rivalry.

In 2017, William, Kate and Prince Harry participated in a training session for runners taking part in the London Marathon.

William came second, and was closely followed by his wife. But it was Harry who won, sprinting past the pair and securing first place.

Kate will support four of her patronages at the charity sailing regatta: Action on Addiction, Place2Be, the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, and The Royal Foundation.

The pair hope that the King’s Cup will become an annual event.
