We are back with a quick update to Kate’s Calendar, and then a look at a topic many of us have wondered about as we have followed the Duchess’s style. First, the engagement added to Kate’s calendar.

Friday, June 16:  In her role as Patron of the 1851 Trust, the Duchess will attend the charity’s final Land Rover BAR Roadshow at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre east of London. Kate will join in an educational treasure hunt with students from four East London schools; the group will also spend time with Sir Ben Ainslie, leading the British effort to win the 2017 Cup.

Qualifying races for the finals have been underway in Bermuda for 10 days. This is the latest from the America’s Cup site:

…the four teams competing in the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs Semi-Finals; Sir Ben Ainslie’s Land Rover BAR, Dean Barker’s SoftBank Team Japan, Peter Burling’s Emirates Team New Zealand and Nathan Outteridge’s Artemis Racing, are set to resume their battles with each other today. 

Sir Ben Ainslie’s team currently trail the Kwis 3-1 in the battle to the first-to-five points needed to progress through to The Louis Vuitton America’s Cup Challenger Playoffs Finals.

We are back with a couple of updates. The first tidbit is an addition to Kate’s Calendar for an event taking place this Friday.

  • Friday, July 8: Kate and William will attend the Royal International Air Tattoo, the world’s largest military airshow. Kate will be attending in her role as patron of the Air Cadets; this year’s show will pay tribute to the Cadets 75th Anniversary.  After meeting dignitaries and some of the Air Cadets the couple will have lunch and watch a portion of the afternoon’s airborne displays/performances. Proceeds from the Show benefit the RAF Charitable Trust. (Read the official news release here.) 

This promises to be a fun engagement. Below, Kate on the cover of this spring’s issue of Air Cadet magazine.

People have been asking about Kate at Wimbledon. Unfortunately we don’t have specific information regarding her possible attendance at matches. Friday Andy Murray plays in the men’s semi-finals; we don’t expect Kate to be there because of the Air Tattoo commitment.  Should Mr. Murray be victorious in that match he would then play on Sunday in the men’s final; that match is scheduled for a 2pm start on Centre Court.

UPDATED 7PM EDT July 6Emily Andrews of The Sun reported on Twitter that Kate will attend Wimbledon on Thursday. “Kate will be at Wimbledon tomorrow, watching Serena & Venus Williams in their semi-final matches on Centre Court.”
