The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hosted the inaugural King's Cup sailing race off the Isle of Wight on Thursday.

The couple went head to head in the major sailing regatta off Cowes in support of their Royal Highnesses' charitable causes. Each boat taking part represented one of eight charities, and the winning team was awarded the historic trophy The King's Cup. The sailing race had to be brought forward because of the high winds forecast, Kensington Palace said in its official Twitter account.
