Batten down the hatches — there's cuteness ahead!
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge kicked off the inaugural King's Cup Regatta in England on Thursday and set sail aboard separate boats while spectators looked on from other crafts — including their own children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
The 6-year-old future king, who's currently missing his two front teeth, looked as though he was ready to command his own fleet as he watched the action while donning a captain's cap of his own.
Though it's possible he wasn't quite as ready for the seafaring life as he seemed.
In another shot, the royal tyke appeared shy as he hid away from the crowd. But George was in good company with sister Charlotte and grandparents Michael and Carole Middleton nearby.
The 4-year-old — who, like George, wore a life jacket while on the waters just off the coast of the Isle of Wight — even offered up a sweet smile for the cameras.
And there was plenty for the kids to smile about! After all, their parents were having a lot of fun on the high seas, and it was all for a good cause.
The former Kate Middleton and Prince William were competing against each other in the eight-team race, with each yacht representing one of their respective patronages.
A post on their Kensington Royal Instagram account gave a rundown of the other charities that will benefit from the competition.
"Their Royal Highnesses hope that The King’s Cup will become an annual event, bringing greater awareness to the wider benefits of sport, whilst also raising support and funds for the causes that The Duke and Duchess support," read a statement included in the post.
So which parent did George and Charlotte watch race to a win? Neither!
As usual, however, little Charlotte stole the show!
