After a sunny opening day, Sail GP has returned today for a second day of facing in the Plymouth Sound. Kate Middleton will join the British team this afternoon as they compete against New Zealand.
Kate stepped out today in Plymouth wearing a fitting outfit for the sailing.
She donned a navy blue and white striped wool jumper with long sleeves.
This was tucked into a pair of white shorts that reached just above her knees.
Kate is rarely seen in shorts, and this pair seemed appropriate for both formal and informal events.

The Duchess wore shorts during her and Prince William’s royal Caribbean tour of The Bahamas in March this year, but they were a shorter grey pair.
Navy shorts are also a staple in her wardrobe, which she donned before boarding a boat in August 2019.
But before the summer of 2019, Kate hadn’t been seen in shorts for over 10 years.
In recent years, she seems to don them only for sporting events.
Royal fans were quick to take to social media today to praise Kate’s chic appearance.
