Here’s a quick update to Duchess Kate’s schedule. Two Sundays from now, on July 26, Kate Middleton and Prince William will visit Portsmouth to attend the America’s Cup World Series.
On the final day of the Series, William and Kate – as Royal Patron of 1851 Trust – will tour the international team areas, visit the new Land Rover BAR headquarters, watch the teams compete, and present medals at the Waterfront Festival Arena. [Portsmouth]
Is this the first time William will show up to one of Kate’s patronage engagements? William doesn’t usually accompany Kate to her patronages, though Kate has accompanied William to his plenty of times. It makes me wonder why he chose to show up to this one. Maybe it’s just because he gets to watch some sailing, and we all know the Cambs love to watch sports.
OR… Is that hottie Ben Ainslie going to be there? He is heading up the British America’s Cup team and is patron of 1851 Trust, so it would make sense he would be there. Maybe William saw how flirty Kate is with Ben and decided to accompany Kate to shut that down.
OR William just wants to watch some sailing after working for two whole weeks (that’s, like, two months in William time – he’ll need a break after two whole weeks of full time work).
Speaking of William’s work. He apparently already flew his first mission. He was called out on Monday a few hours after he started work, but that mission was aborted. Then he was called out and completed a mission yesterday. [Cambridge-News]
Also in William’s work news: Apparently one of his co-workers is a pretty 33 year old brunette woman doctor named Dr. Gemma Mullen. She’s pretty, she looks a bit like Kate (and Jecca Craig), and apparently the DM wants to stir some stuff up and devoted a whole article to her. [Daily Mail]
