WATER WORKS: The Duchess of Cambridge visited the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich to show her support for a British team that is gunning to qualify for the 35th America's Cup in 2017.

Dressed in a white Jaeger dress with navy trim and an Asprey pendant, the duchess met the crew, boat designers and supporters of the team. A keen sailor herself, she also met Olympic gold medalist Sir Ben Ainslie who is heading Britain's bid to take part in the famous race.
