The Duchess of Cambridge is joining the 1851 Trust – a charity that seeks to engage and inspire young people to promote sustainability – and the Great Britain SailGP team on their F50 foiling catamaran. She will take part in a friendly “Commonwealth Race” against New Zealand, alongside Sir Ben Ainslie, who founded the 1851 Trust. The Duchess was made a patron of the trust in 2014.

As part of her appearance today, Kate will also be meeting with young people taking part in activities to promote sustainability.

Royal commentator Victoria Arbiter described the royal as “The Royal Family’s very own Sporty Spice”.

Writing on Twitter, she added: “All eyes will be on the Duchess of Cambridge tomorrow as she takes on #NewZealand in high-speed head-to-head.”

Speaking about her passion for sport in Honey magazine, Ms Arbiter said: “From the London 2012 Olympics, where she served as a Team GB Ambassador, to her annual appearances at Wimbledon, her presence at last year’s Euro Championships and her attendance at the XX Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014, she’s proved to be far from a fair-weather fan.”

Kate has long had a visible passion for sport and has used her platform to highlight a number of sporting endeavours.

The royal served as a Team GB Ambassador for the London 2012 Olympics.

Earlier this year, she took over from Prince Harry as patron of England Rugby.

She is also the royal patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club.
