Prince William and Kate Middleton: 'Row' and Hug

Prince William and Kate Middleton made a stunning impression in Prince Edward Island's Charlottetown on July 4, 2011.

The Duchess looked every inch the royal, wearing a circa 1920's cream-and-navy knitted dress in cabled pattern and low hem by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. The dress was paired with navy Prada heels, muted eye colors, pink blusher, and lipstick.

She wore her usually left-down hair pulled back in a ponytail, which went well with the sailor style of the dress; the pink hues gave her a youthful summer glow. While the dress was a demure choice, both in color and style, her high heels gave it just the right edge.

William wore a matching navy suit with light blue shirt and purple tie. Could the guy get any hotter?

As if in answer to that question, he took part in a dragon boat competition with his equally athletic spouse. The two led opposing teams manned by local crew members for a PEI boat race on Dalvay Lake.

Quizzed before the race as to who is going to win, a confident prince said, "We are. Of course!"

He kept his word, as his team finished ahead of his wife's by one third of a boat length.

William apologize to Kate, just gave her a warm embrace as they got off the jetty.

"No chivalry!" said the future monarch.

Later, the prince performed a demonstration of "waterbirding", a technique developed by Canadians to land a helicopter on water. His first time, he was helped by members of the Canadian Armed Forces and the second and third times William took command of the aircraft himself.

An insider was quoted as saying he would be the envy of men back at his Anglesey, Wales base, where he works as a Search and Rescue pilot.

We don't know about them, but we definitely envy Kate for getting that hug. =)
