Kate Middleton Stuns in Nautical-Themed Dress, Lobbies For America's Cup, is NOT Pregnant

by at .

For a royal appearance on behalf of Britain's bid for the America's Cup 2017 at London's National Maritime Museum, Kate Middleton looked the stunning part.

Donning a nautical black and white Jaeger dress featuring contrasting trim along the neckline, arms and waistband, the 32-year-old was a vision of summer.

We can officially put those Kate Middleton pregnant rumors to rest, too:

In addition to meeting and greeting the members of the country's sailing team, Kate Middleton chatted with Olympic gold medalist Sir Ben Ainslie, 37.

"She was asking lots of technical questions; she knew her stuff," the sailor said. "We were all sharing sailing stories, and I think her sailing comes from her family."

Ainslie didn't elaborate won hether Middleton relayed the tale of how she beat husband Prince William in sailing during their April 2014 tour of Australia.

He did express his gratitude for having the Duchess' support.

"It means a lot to have her here," he said. "We're a British team so to have Her Royal Highness behind the team really gives us a new sense of pride."

How could you not award the sailing event to Great Britain if it means more photo opportunities like this? Think about it, America's Cup. Major PR boost.

Echoed Lord Michael Grade, also present at the launch:

"She's from a sailing family, and she loves sailing," Grade said. "You can just tell she's always been keen on it, and her face lights up when she's talking about it."

Just like YOUR face will light up clicking through the photos below! Okay, it's not the same, but they are eye-opening in a different sense for sure:
