On July 5, 2014, Prince William, Prince Harry and Kate Middleton inaugurated the Tour de France 2014. The royal trio appeared at Harewood House to cut the ribbon to kick off the event after its ceremonial commencement in Leeds City Centre. Read further about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) report on the  Tour de France 2014 to learn more about the highlights of the event.

Although Prince George was not present at the Tour de France 2014, he was gifted with a mini-yellow jersey — the same token given to the winners. The royals saw the 22 teams embark on the 2,272-mile trip, which will head through the UK, Belgium and Spain before finishing in Paris on July 27, 2014.

All the royal fans who were inquisitive to see the Prince George were disappointed by his absence.In fact,  a girl asked where he was.  “He’s asleep in his bedroom,” replied the Duchess of Cambridge. One of the fans who were lined in Yorkshire streets to cheer on the cyclists asked what the little prince enjoys playing with. “Interested in helicopters and anything with wheels,” answered Middleton.

For the event, the 32-year-old Duchess got a little more stylish and sported an effervescent green $3,000 wool-crepe Allie coat by the Turkish-English label Erdem. She paired the ensemble with nude heels. She rocked the ensemble earlier in Hamilton, New Zealand on April 12, 2014 while on the Royal Tour. William and Harry looked super dapper in blue trousers and navy suit jackets.  The noteworthy point was, again, the recycled look of the duchess.

German cyclist Marcel Kittel, who won the first leg of the race after her appearance at Harewood House, was given the yellow jersey by the Duchess herself.  She also met athletes supported by SportsAid at the finishing line in Harrogate.  She is a patron of SportsAid.

And that’s it for the royal family scoop. For more details about the Royal family, including Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince George, Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth II, as well as other entertainment news, stay tuned here on Movie News Guide (MNG).
