Cricket in 3-inch heels, racing her husband: 11 photos of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, that charmed people of New Zealand

Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has twice beaten her husband Prince William during friendly racing in America's Cup sailing boats on Auckland's Waitemata Harbour. Both had some high-powered teammates - Kate was paired with Team New Zealand skipper Dean Barker while William raced with Grant Dalton, the team's manager and a veteran round-the-world racer. The royal couple is on a three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia. She has also played cricket in 3-inch heels. Look at these fabulous photos of the gorgeous Duchess that the people of New Zealand won't forget in a long time.
