Prince William and Kate Middleton had a busy weekend in Canada that included a rowing competition in which the newlyweds raced against each other and William got the chance to show off his flying skills by successfully landing a helicopter in water.
The military exercise on Monday along the shore of Prince Edward Island took place as a proud Kate looked on. Prince William works as a rescue pilot
in his homeland but this was his first-ever water landing.
The couple -- officially known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge -- also got the chance to race dragon boats against each other. Both are experienced in the activity, with Kate training with a dragon boat crew back in 2007. The prince's crew won the race but the royal couple shared a hug after emerging wet from the boats.
The royal couple's North American Tour
will also take them to California
beginning July 8. The U.S. portion of the trip will include a red
carpet event, a polo match and other appearances during which the
royals will meet with charitable and business leaders.
