Prince William has long been rumoured to be a bit of a thrill-seeker and he lived up to that reputation at the weekend as he hit the surf with a body-board under his arm and his brother Harry by his side.

The two Princes decided to indulge in a spot of surfing in Conrnwall, well-famed for its water sports, and had a whale of a time crashing about in the waves.

After their adventurous day in Polzeath, the boys then enjoyed hitting the local pubs and restaurants, before having a house party with friends.

The area is a favourite with well-to-do holidaymakers and stars alike, including Hugh Grant, so it's no huge surprise to see the Royals enjoy a short break there.

A bystander told the Daily Record that the siblings appeared to be having a great time.

“We only realised they were here when were looking for a lost ball and bumped into a group of men,” the neighbour said.

“We looked up and saw the two Princes. They looked like they were having lots of fun.”

But while Wills and Harry were spending their Sunday laughing and joking in the surf, William's wife Kate and her sister Pippa were nervously on the edge of their seats as they watched Andy Murray take on Roger Federer at Wimbledon.

The brunette beauties stole some of the attention off the game as they arrived dressed in pretty summer outfits for the tense final.

Kate was dressed in a cream dress and jacket by Joseph, while Pippa, 28, wore a blue and white bird-print peplum dress by Dannii Minogue’s fashion label Project D. Both looked stunning and demonstrated why they are the envy of women the world over.

The girls had some competition in the fashion stakes though, from Andy Murray’s girlfriend Kim Sears, 24, who showed off her killer curves in a tight-fitting white top and high-waisted black skirt combo.

Unfortunately Andy missed out on the championship on the day, but still made history as the first British man to make the Wimbledon Men’s Single Finals in 74 years.
