Kate Middleton Beaten in Dragon Boat Race

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

BRITAIN’S Prince William defeated Duchess Catherine in a dragon boat race yesterday.

The Duke of Cambridge beat his wife — who used to belong to the Sisterhood boat crew –- by 10 lengths as they each joined a team to race across Dalvay Lake on Prince Edward Island in Canada on the fifth day of their tour of the North American country.

Before the contest the prince was asked who he thought would triumph, and he joked, “We are of course.”

But Kate quipped, “He’ll be lucky.”

The royal couple – who tied the knot in London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29 — hugged and congratulated each other following the race.

Kate steered her team’s boat, while William’s boat led from the start and it was clear from the beginning his vessel looked more likely to win.

The duke and duchess arrived at the event via horse-drawn carriage and were greeted by thousands of supporters, and some had camped overnight to get a glimpse of the royal couple.

Earlier in the day, the prince — who flies Sea King helicopters in the RAF (Royal Air Force) — took part in a dangerous helicopter manoeuvre on the lake, landing a Canadian military helicopter on the water for the first time.

The couple — who will leave Canada for California on Friday — also took in Province House, where the idea for the country was born.

William said in a speech, which he partly spoke in French, it was “quite a moment” to be stood in front of the building where the “Canadian federation was forged”.

    I’m bored with always having the last word but I just have to say, no shes not infertile! That was a rumor that got debunked a looooooooong time ago,my friend. You need to keep track of news and facts. Also who cares about this whole race thing? Don’t ask me why but I have a nagging feeling talking about it is disrespectful.

    First of all Kate is not jewish . If she was infertile the media would not know yet. Why are you such a mean person.

    As to this article there are many wrong things in it. Kate did not steer the team boat. She steered it to the starting line, then she decided to paddle. Look at the clip she was in the back of the boat.

    Will and Kate were in a horse drawn carriage earlier in the day. But they left the Capital of Prince Edward Island and went to Dalvay Lake by cars.

    You should be more carefull in your reporting.

    Actually the media WOULD know that stuff gets out quick. Other than that I agree with everything you said.

    I do believe all the concepts you’ve introduced in your post. They are very convincing and will definitely work. Nonetheless, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please prolong them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.
