Consolatory hug for boat race runner up as the Prince sails to victory
Having started with friendly rivalry, including William teasing the opposing team, it ended with a consoling hug from the Prince when he won.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went head to head in a dragon boat race with teams of local athletes across Dalvay Lake on Prince Edward Island in Canada on Monday, with William sailing to victory.
And earlier in the day, the 29-year-old demonstrated "waterbirding" – a technique developed in Canada to safely land a helicopter on water – before an excited audience and his wife who was taking pictures.
