The Duchess of Cambridge showed off her short style at the King’s Cup Regatta last week and people were buzzing about Kate’s gorgeous gams. The athletic mom of three looked spectacular in navy shorts for a day at sea on the Isle of Wight with her family. And despite a valiant sailing effort the duchess did not win first prize in the charity boat race but she could’ve won a blue ribbon for ‘Loveliest Legs.’ So, in honor of the duchess and her leggy showcase–we’re revisiting some of her previous moments showing off her perfect stems.

Here are 12 of Kate Middleton’s Best Bare Leg Moments:

4. Fitness Queen

The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly works out every day and loves to run around her Norfolk home or Kensington Gardens and also skies, swims and does pilates and yoga. All that hard work was on display at a Royal Air show in 2016 when Kate took Prince George to see the planes.

6. Pretty in Pink

Rather than fade into the background in Archie’s christening photos, the daring duchess showed she’s got all the right moves and wowed in a silk pink dress and some seriously vamp pumps by Gianvito Rossi.

7. Oh Baby

Most mere mortal moms would slink out of the hospital in stretchy pants with a very elastic waistband –the duchess proved she’s got superhuman  skills and wore a polka dot dress and wedges only hours after giving birth! The mini cornflower blue dress showed off Kate’s lengthy legs.



8. Pre-Princess

Before she was a royal, Kate was a commoner and loved a fun girls night out. In 2007 she showed off her gleaming gams in an LBD.
