Having scored four goals, Prince William won a charity polo match in Santa Barbara on Saturday.
And, with the help of a collective audience chanting "kiss", the Duke of Cambridge was rewarded with an embrace from his wife on the winner’s podium.
The Duchess had been cheering William on during the game, and was responsible for presenting the winning team their big silver trophy, with which the competitive Duke was delighted.
Prior to the game, William joked his return to Santa Barbara depended on the result.
"Seriously, I’m not a good loser,” he quipped.
