Thousands of people lined the quays of Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour to greet the royal couple and cheer them on as they sailed out in the rival boats with Team New Zealand.

They set sail  around Auckland’s Waitemata Harbor in two America’s Cup yachts after doing a bit of trash-talking. The Duke was in NZL 41, which previously raced under the Japanese flag in the Louis Vuitton series and the Duchess was in NZL 68, a former training boat for Team New Zealand. Kate finally pulled off the win!

Following their fierce competition, the royals took a ride across the harbor in an amphibious Sealegs boat, which they took turns steering.

Upon their return to shore, they were given a miniature Sealegs custom-made for Prince George. From there, they will be transported back to their jet and home to their little Prince.

Kate Makes a Pit Stop at McDonalds

Yesterday, Kate was snapped pulling up to a roadside McDonald’s on the way from Anglesey in Wales to Kensington Palace in London. She was accompanied by Prince George and a Prince Williams childhood nanny, Jessie Webb.

The Duchess of Cambridge was dressed casually in a green tweed, Ralph Lauren hacking jacket, a white short sleeve tee, a pair of black jeans (I’m still unsure if they are Paige denim or Topshop) and her ‘Bala’ taupe and white suede boat shoes by Sebago ($95).

 
 

Completing her outfit, Kate wore her Kiki McDonough Grace earrings and her Givenchy SGV773 sunglasses (£159). Her hair was pulled back in a loose knot bun.

 
 
Who is Jessie Webb?

William and Kate have made a decision to hire a nanny to help them take care of the tiny prince. They have asked William’s former nanny, Jessie Webb (71), to come out of retirement and lend a hand.

Miss Webb cared for William and his brother, Harry, in the early 1990s. The Duke was seven when she was hired and about to start prep school. While all seemed well to the outside world, Jessie provided stability for the young boys when Charles and Diana’s relationship disintegrated.
 
She spent five years working for the family, leaving when Harry started at Ludgrove in the fall of 1992. She then, went to work for Viscount Linley and his wife Serena, where she remained for several happy years.
 
William remained close to his former nanny, ensuring that she was a guest of honor at his 21st birthday party and his wedding two years ago.

Kate & William Leave for Blanchford Lake and are Given Diamonds Upon Arrival

In the late afternoon, Kate and William boarded a sea plane for Blanchford Lake. They are on their way to a Ranger station which is a remote outpost used for surveillance patrols in the vast wilderness of the north of the region.

Kate changed into a tan casual yet chic long-sleeve, button down shirt, skinny jeans, embellished leather belt, Kiki McDonough citrine drop earrings, and her Sebago Ladies Taupe Bala Deck Shoe before departing with her husband.

Upon arrival, the Northwest Territories government presented William and Kate with a Harry Winston platinum and pave-set diamond brooch and pair of cuff links. The gifts, bearing a pave polar bear silhouette beneath a semi-circle representing the northern lights, were given to the royal couple in a small ceremony earlier this afternoon.

The souvenir given to the couple includes stones extracted from the Diavik Diamond Mine, a wide, circular geographic oddity situated on an island in the middle of a lake, just 140 miles south of the Arctic Circle. This year, the mine will produce nearly 7 million carats or $850 million in diamonds.

It took 250 hours to create the two intricate pieces of jewelry. There are more than 692 diamonds between the two pieces — 302 in the brooch and 390 in the cuff links. The brooch stones are bigger than the ones in the cuff links.

Update 7/6/11

Kate’s blouse is from Burberry London. It is the Military Pocket Jersey Shirt. It has been sold out for some time (originally £295).

Kate’s Jeans have been ID’d as the J Brand 811 mid-rise skinny pant in navy luxe twill $169 (sold out).
