The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Catherine, were all smiles when they arrived in Heidelberg town of Germany that is the oldest city in the country.

The first stop on today’s itinerary was the German Cancer Research Centre.

At the centre, they also received a briefing on leukaemia. Then the royal couple was received by the Mayor of Heidelberg at the traditional German market in Central Square.

There they wandered through the market that was set up to offer local drinks and food. The couple tried their hand on pretzel making for which they get a quick lesson from local apprentices.

They were greeted by a huge cheering crowd before the racing match.

Today once again we saw Duke and Duchess in a friendly rivalry when they were in opposing rowing teams in a race with crews drawn from Cambridge and Heidelberg.

As reported in the Express, Kate had jokingly told her crew: “No pressure, but I do want to beat my husband,” before the race and she was given a huge advantage over William after an Olympic gold medalist was chosen to be in her boat.

Prince William and Catherine enjoyed friendly banter with each other. Such moments bring out the happiness they share and the love they have for each other. We have seen such moments in the past also during Canada Tour 2011 and then in Australia- New Zealand in 2014.

Both the winner and runner-up teams were awarded the medals in the end. And teams enjoyed the match with cold beers.

Now to Duchess’ looks of the day. For the first part of the day’s activities, she stepped out in a yellow brocade dress. Catherine wore a yellow brocade dress from one of her favourite British labels Jenny Packham. Big thanks to @WWKD_Official for the quick dress id. The floral jacquard dress features a fit-and-flare silhouette. The colour of the bespoke dress is again part of the German flag.
