Sporty Kate hits the water in Germany wearing her go-to active wear

By Hanna Fillingham

The Duchess of Cambridge slipped into some comfy clothes on Thursday (July 20) afternoon to take part in a rowing race in Germany. The 35-year-old looked stylish in a simple blue and white striped T-shirt, which is believed to be Hugo Boss. Kate’s nautical inspired look was completed with a pair of slim fit black trousers and her white Superega trainers.

Beauty-wise, Kate wore her long, glossy, freshly-cut hair down in loose waves and kept her make-up nice and natural, but during the race, she styled it in casual up-do and wore a pair of black oversized shades. The Duchess received a medal after the race, which saw her husband, Prince William beat her to the finish line.

Kate turned heads in her first outfit earlier in the day, looking immaculate in a in a sunflower yellow lace fit and flare dress from Jenny Packham - one of her favourite designers. The mum-of-two pared back the vibrant summery dress with a nude clutch bag and co-ordinating Monsoon wedges.

Before the race, Kate and Prince William enjoyed putting their culinary skills to the test after being given a lesson in making pretzels while at a traditional German market in the central square. The royal couple also visited the German Cancer Research Institute where they were shown the world acclaimed work being carried out. Tonight, they will end their action-packed day at a reception at Clärchens Ballhaus, the last original dancehall in Berlin.

Many are viewing the royal trip, taken at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, as another Brexit diplomacy tour, helping to maintain and strengthen the UK's relations with Europe as it leaves the EU. Earlier this year, the Duke and Duchess spent two days in Paris where they met former French President Francois Hollande.
