Our 16 favourite royals at sea

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge both spent time sailing as children and have carried this passion into their adult lives so it's no surprise that the couple should take a keen interest in the America's Cup and the British home team Land Rover BAR. As well as attending both America's Cup World Series events in Portsmouth - most recently in July 2016 (pictured) - the Duchess is also a patron of the 1851 Trust. The Trust is the official charity of Land Rover BAR and aims to educate and broaden children's horizons through sailing.

Of course, this is not the first time the couple have been spotted at sea. In 2014 the Duchess showed off her sailing prowess as she took to them helm of an America’s Cup yacht during an official tour of New Zealand. Aided by Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker, she sailed to victory over Prince William, whose crew led by Grant Dalton couldn’t beat the Duchess of Cambridge over the line in Waitemata Harbour, Auckland.
