Ahoy Sailor! Princess Kate Makes a Splash in Nautical-inspired Outfit at Sailing Workshop for Kids

Princess Kate was all smiles as she headed to a sailing workshop to have fun with a group of kids.

Kate, who is a patron for the 1851 Trust, attended the charity’s Land Rover BAR Roadshow at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre in London on Friday. The event, which is linked with Sir Ben Ainslie’s British America’s Cup challenge, was organized to inspire schoolchildren to get into STEM programs as well as sailing. The roadshow also teaches kids about environmental effort to combat the amount of plastic in the oceans.

The Duchess of Cambridge wore appropriately nautical colors in a white jacket by Zara and navy blue pants by J. Crew.

As she arrived, Kate was handed a post of flowers by Samiyah Khanom, 11, from a local school.

“I was so excited to meet her, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Samiyah told reporters. “She asked what kind of boat I’d been in and asked if I’d ever watched the Americas Cup. She talked about how fast they go.”

The event was made of of children from four schools in East London.

Kate took part in an educational treasure hunt and an ocean plastics sea-bird activity, which highlights the damage caused by single use plastics and promotes sustainability. The 1851 Trust and the America’s Cup team have put the campaign at the heart of their operations since their inception.
