Eight boats will race, each representing a charity being supported by the royals.

    The sporty couple are longtime advocates for being active, highlighting how sports, nature and being outdoors can improve physical and mental well-being.

    And they’re not opposed to some friendly competition. While visiting Northern Ireland in March, Kate and William faced off against each other in a canoe race, where William’s boat clinched the victory. Despite falling short, the royal mom flashed a big smile while wearing her helmet and holding her paddle.

    Kate also tried her hand at archery, while William conquered a ropes course as the children supported him and cheered him on.
