The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a rare public kiss on Wednesday after his polo team won a fundraising competition that brought in £1 million for the couple’s charities.
William and Kate were seen sharing a cheek kiss as the duchess handed out awards following the Royal Charity Polo Cup, which was held at the Castle Ground at Guards Polo Club in Berkshire, not far from Windsor Castle.
As Kate gave him a replica Samurai warrior’s helmet from the Japanese sponsors of the competition, William was heard saying, “Wow.”
Before taking a picture with all the players, Kate distributed the helmet trophies and other awards.
Pictures also revealed that the couple brought their new black cocker spaniel Orla to the event, who was seen running around enjoying the summer sun. The couple was seen walking with their arms around each other.
Kate styled her hair loosely and wore a mid-length shift dress by Emilia Wickstead that cost £1,350. She wore hoop earrings, short wedge heels, and tortoiseshell sunglasses as accessories, pushing her hair back from her face.
The event, according to its organizers, raised more than £1 million for charities including the East Anglian Children’s Hospices, the Passage, which helps the homeless, and the London Air Ambulance Charity.
The couple has had a busy week because they also spent time at Wimbledon; judging from the pictures and videos of the couple watching Cameron Norrie’s match against David Goffin of Belgium, things got a little overwhelming for them at times.
The future King struggled with stress and anxiety at times during the dramatic five-set quarterfinal match, which the couple watched from the stands at No. 1 Court.
He could be heard mouthing “Oh no, no, not…F,” but the cameras quickly panned away before he could finish.
The couple celebrated the thrilling victory on social media after their appearance at Wimbledon by posting a photo of the 26-year-old pumping his fist on the court along with the caption: “How perfect! Amazing work, @cam norrie.”
Later, they added: “What a tennis day it was! It’s wonderful to be back at Wimbledon today and to see @Cam Norrie leading the singles competition!”
