In July 2022, the Princess of Wales did the unthinkable — she wore shorts! Showing off a summer tan and some major definition, the mom of three revealed her bare legs to the masses. The reason for the “scandalous” shorts outing? A visit to the 1851 Trust and the Great Britain SailGP Team in Plymouth, England. During the visit, the princess took part in a competitive sailing competition promoting sustainability and the sciences.

The princess in fact changed ensembles three times during the visit — once donning a pair of Holland Cooper tailored linen shorts in the shade oyster with an Erdem Lotus striped crewneck. Then, she switched into a sailing ensemble complete with wetsuit and a sporting vest for a catamaran race. Finally, the sporty princess was spotted in Helly Hansen Maridalen Hiking Shorts in Navy. She paired the shorts with a SailGP Wind Breaker rain jacket and her beloved low-top canvas Superga Cotu sneakers

The classic and durable outdoor cargo shorts in a dark navy blue boast a zip fly with a single flat button for a classic and feminine fit.

Two cargo pockets with a hidden snap closure as well as a back flap pocket and ultraviolet protection fabric — mean these shorts are suitable for hiking, mountaineering, sailing or biking.
