Kate, William, and Harry Bring Royal Flair to the Tour de France

Jul 5 2014 - 10:27am

Let the race begin! Kate Middleton and Princes William and Harry kicked off the Tour de France in Leeds, England, on Saturday. Surrounded by cyclists and a crowd of more than a million spectators, the duchess had the honor of cutting the ribbon [1] before 198 competitors began their journey to Harrogate, England. Ultimately, Marcel Kittel of Germany came in first place. The winner got to take center stage with the royal trio and was presented with the tour's iconic yellow jersey. Kate donned a green Erdem coat she debuted on the royal tour [2] in New Zealand, while William and Harry opted for nearly identical outfits. Both guys wore dark jackets, white shirts, and blue khaki pants.

The festivities mark the second sporting event Kate and William have attended this week. On Wednesday, the couple couldn't help but get animated [3] while catching a tennis match at Wimbledon. Kate doesn't always watch the action from royal box seats or the sidelines, though — as we've learned over the years, she's not too princessy to play sports [4].
