Kate Middleton And Prince William’s Weekend Was Probably More Exciting Than Yours (Sorry)

    Kate Middleton and Prince William got up to all sorts this weekend. While you were probably relaxing with a glass of wine in your sunny garden (wasn’t it glorious, btw?), the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge played cricket, enjoyed a spot of wine tasting, went sailing, strolled around a botanical gardens and bombed down the Shotover River in a jet boat. Crikey.

    In Christchurch, Kate showed off her sporting prowess by playing cricket in three-inch heels (our hats go off to K-Midd again for this feat) and a red peplum Luisa Spagnoli suit that she’s worn several times before.

    On Sunday, Wills and Kate also enjoyed a white knuckle ride down the Shotover River on the Shotover Jet which, apparently, is the ‘world’s most exciting jet boat ride’. What fun.

    Before that the pair had a wine tasting session at the Amisfield Vineyard (Kate was wearing her navy double-breasted Zara blazer, FYI). During the visit Kate also revealed that she ‘was really enjoying being able to drink again after having baby George.’ We hear that, K-Midd.

    For a visit to the All Blacks rugby stadium, where the pair tried their hand at some coaching, Kate wore a cream knitted Jonathan Saunders jumper, skinny jeans and a pair of Mint Velvet grey suede sneakers.

    Tomorrow, Kate and Wills will have time to recover with a private day in Wellington before travelling to Sydney on Wednesday. Sounds like they could probably do with a nap and a strong cup of tea.
