Princes William and Harry go surfing
Jul 9, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Prince William went surfing with his brother Prince Harry yesterday (08.07.12).
The two royals were pictured getting to grips with the waves off a public beach in Cornwall, South England, along with a number of their friends.
Clad in black wetsuits, William - who also went surfing as part of his bachelor party celebrations before his marriage to Duchess Catherine last April - and Harry appeared unconcerned by the stormy weather as they laughed with pals in the choppy water.
It seemed the relaxing day had been planned for some time as William had turned down seats in the Royal Box for the final of the Wimbledon tennis championships, saying an 'existing commitment' prevented him from attending.
Instead, the prince's wife Catherine was joined by her younger sister Pippa Middleton to see Britain's Andy Murray beaten by Roger Federer, who took his seventh title at the tournament.
However, William had joined his wife earlier in the week to watch the players in their quarter final matches from the royal box at the tennis event in London, joined by an impressive array of stars, including former tennis players Rod Laver and Andre Agassi and royals Prince Michael of Kent and Lady Frederick Windsor.
