Video: Adam McQuaid races with royalty

While Bruins fans spent the fourth of July eating hamburgers and watching fireworks, B’s defenseman and Prince Edward Island native Adam McQuaid did something that would make more than just mullet aficionados jealous.
With the royal couple in McQuaid’s neck of the woods for a dragon boat race on Dalvay Lake, the Boston blueliner rowed in Kate Middleton‘s boat, which was bested by that of Prince William.
“Even though I lost the race,” McQuaid told The Guardian, “some people might argue I won because I got to be in her boat.”
McQuaid can be seen rowing at 0:27 and 1:10 of the following video, and at 1:33, he even stops to chat with Middleton for a moment. You know the 24-year-old has had a good few months when the only thing he’s lost is a boat race in which he hung out with royalty.
