Kate Middleton: Duchess hints she’s not pregnant at King’s Cup race at Cowe

Kate Middleton was spotted wearing a stripy knitted t-shirt as she arrived at The Royal Yacht Squadron with Prince William. The royal kept the look formal by matching this with a pair of high-waisted navy tailored trousers from L.K Bennet, which cost £150. She wore a stylish look but it was her new hairstyle which caught attention as she showed she is going lighter for summer with new highlights. Some royal enthusiasts could be hoping for another royal baby but Kate might have given the biggest clue this will not be happening with her new do.

When pregnant, some women choose to ditch the hair dye in the early stages of the pregnancy to avoid causing harm to the child.

The NHS said: “Many women decide to wait to dye their hair until after the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, when the risk of chemical substances harming the baby is much lower.”

Today, she revealed her new copper highlights which is something she probably wouldn’t have got if she was trying for her fourth child.

Her freshly cut hair was styled into a side pattern and wore it down with a natural looking curl.

As she stepped out with Prince William, she wore a colourful knitted t-shirt from which had brown, navy, white and red stripes across it.

The top, from Sandro, £135, had frilly sleeves and a frilly peplum detail at the bottom which accentuated her tiny waist.

Kate dressed this up with a pair of navy tailored wide leg trousers which had a large white button on each side.

She opted for comfy shoes with a pair of high-street Superga classic white trainers, which are on sale for £55.

The royal wore a pair of small heart earrings by Kiki McDonough.

At the event, the Duke and Duchess went head-to-head in a sailing regatta at the event in the Isle of Wight.

For the sailing, the Duchess changed into a sporty look with a pair of black shorts and grey trainers. 

She wore a grey waterproof and scooped her hair into a high ponytail which was seen out the back of a navy blue cap.

The boats taking part are to represent one of Kate and William’s eight charities and the winning team will be awarded The King’s Cup.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge recently wore matching outfits as they attended Wimbledon last month.

Dressed in blue matching outfits, Kate wore a powder blue dress from Emilia Wickstead, costing £1,390.

William wore a grey blazer with a shirt and tie in the same colour as Kate’s dress.

One stylist revealed how the couple’s matching outfits suggested the Duke and Duchess are in tune with each other.

How did Kate Middleton become a royal?

Early life

Kate Middleton, or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was born on 9 January 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, Reading, England.

She was born to Michael and Carole Middleton, a former flight dispatcher and air hostess. The couple founded a party supplies company, Party Pieces, in 1987 – now estimated to be worth £30 million.

Kate has a younger sister Pippa Matthews, 34, and a younger brother James Middleton, 31.


Kate and her family moved to Amman, Jordan, in 1984, where the future Duchess was educated at an English-speaking nursery school.

After moving back to Berkshire the family sent Kate to private school, St Andrews School. She went on to briefly study at Downe House before moving onto Marlborough College where she boarded.

For university the young Kate attended the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Here she was awarded an undergraduate MA (2:1 Hons) in history of art.

Relationship with Prince William

Kate met Prince William when they were both studying at St Andrews, and both living in St Salvator’s Hall. Famously, William reportedly took a fancy to Kate after she wore a see-through dress during a fashion show.

In 2003 the couple began dating and lived together during their second year of university.

The couple split in April 2007, however, in October they were back together.


Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s engagement ring in October 2010. The couple were holidaying in Kenya at the time.

On 29 April 2011 they married at Westminster Abbey with a whopping 26 million watching the event live.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen dress worth a reported £250,000 on the big day.

Kate assumed the title “Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge” and also become the Duchess of Cambridge on the day.

The royal line of succession – who outranks who?

The line of succession to the British throne dictates the order in which each member of the Royal Family would ascend to the throne.

It is also seen as a ranking of importance with the head of the line, the Queen, taking the place of ruler.

Older children come before younger children. Traditionally boys came before girls, but this law was changed on 26 March 2015 before the birth of Prince William’s first child.

Incredibly, Catholics are still excluded from the line of succession, as are children born outside of wedlock.

The royals, who usually stick to a strict protocol when appearing in public, often arrive at events in ascending order of importance, with the most important royal arriving last.

Prince Charles, 70, is currently second-in-line to the British throne, followed by Prince William, 37, his oldest son.

Then comes Prince William’s children, George, five, Charlotte, three, and Louis, almost one, and they are followed by Prince Harry, 34.
