Kate Middleton and Prince William looked like twins during their official engagement on Sunday. Though part of the engagement, the sailing expedition was canceled due to bad weather conditions, but the couple still managed a fun day out. Both Will and Kate stepped out in matching personalized fleeces.
Middleton was dressed casually for the wet and windy weather in skinny jeans. She paired the jeans with her favorite Breton-style top by British brand ME+EM. She teamed up her look with taupe Sebago Bala boat shoes when she visited the headquarters of America’s Cup hopefuls Ben Ainslee Racing Center in Portsmouth, England, E!News reported.
Kate was effortlessly glamorous in her laid-back, nautical outfit, which was finished off with high ponytail. Besides, she wore a long sleeve navy Land Rover fleece emblazoned with the BAR logo and her title “The Duchess of Cambridge” on the back. Meanwhile, William also donned casual jeans and the same BAR fleece with his full title also printed on the back. The jackets featured zip-up collars and red piping.
The mother of two showed her maternal side as she entertained some of the youngsters at BAR’s team base. Kate was also given a few gifts from the families, including matching fleeces for her children from sisters Ella and Millie Morgan, whose mother is JO Grindley, the BAR team’s commercial director. Will and Kate also received wooden bath toys including wooden replicas of the Navy’s two new aircraft carriers, the Queen Elizabeth and the Prince of Wales.
Meanwhile, Kensington Palace has tweeted pictures from the official engagement. The couple were at Portsmouth to attend the America’s Cup World Series, where they were due to watch six sailing teams from around the world compete in two races. Unfortunately, due to heavy wind and rain the races were postponed to an unknown date. Kate was visiting in her capacity as royal patron of the 1851 Trust.
The couple carried out their indoor engagement. They stopped by the new BAR team base to see the state of the art facilities, meet staff and families and learn about BAR’s investment in developing maritime and design skills. The royals also had the chance to tour the team technical areas at the Royal Navy Base and meet sailors.
