UK’s Duke, Duchess of Cambridge Cox Rival Crews in Germany

HEIDELBERG, Germany – The United Kingdom’s Prince William and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, took to the water on Thursday in the southern German university city of Heidelberg for a boat race on the penultimate day of their continental trip.

The friendly regatta saw the Duke and Duchess pitted against each other as they coxed opposing mixed teams of female rowers from the UK city of Cambridge and men from Heidelberg.

Scores of spectators gathered on the banks of the River Neckar to catch a glimpse of the action.

Images captured by an epa photographer on the ground showed the couple smiling and interacting with the rowers, as well as the moment when Prince William used a wooden mallet to insert a tap into a beer barrel, before raising a stein with the other participants, as is customary in Germany.

After the boat race, which was won by the Duke’s team, the couple went on to visit the German Cancer Research Institute in Heidelberg.

The royals were in Germany as part of a five-day visit along with their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, which first took them to Poland.

The family was to return home to the UK on Friday.
