Duchess Kate cheers hockey team to win
Posted August 3, 2012
Duchess Kate, a former field hockey player in her teens, took in the men's team hockey competition at the Olympics in London today, watching Team GB beat Pakistan.
The former Kate Middleton, now Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, was without her fellow Olympic ambassadors, husband Prince William and brother-in-law Prince Harry. They were busy doing multiple TV interviews (with British media, natch) about their Olympic experiences so far on Day 7 of the Summer Games.
Kate was enthusiastic at the men's hockey match, jumping to her feet, arms in the air, cheering lustily, according to Grazia. She was wearing a navy fleece pull-on over a red shirt and skinny navy jeans with the Stuart Weitzman wedges she has worn during numerous appearances to support Team GB over the past week, according to the HRHDuchessKate blog.
Late today, Will and Kate appeared together at the Aquatics Center to watch the swimming finals; she had changed into a poppy-red jacket with a white top and dark polka dots.
The night before, Will and Kate were even more enthusiastic - throwing their arms around each other, embracing and kissing as the British track cycling team took gold at the Velodrome.
The young royal ambassadors appear to be genuinely jazzed about their Olympic roles and about their team. Kate, a keen hockey player in high school, attracted huge attention for Britain's women players earlier this year when she visited them at practice and took a turn on the field while wearing a pair of coral pink skinny jeans.
All three young royals are expected at various competitions over the weekend.
During their interviews today, William and Harry said they were surprised and delighted, like everyone else, when their grandmother the queen was transformed briefly into a Bond girl, appearing with actor Daniel Craig as James Bond in a hilarious filmed sequence at the Opening Ceremony, one of the inspired bits of British lunacy from director Danny Boyle.
"She did such a good performance that she has now been asked to star in the next Bond film," Will joked in the interview, according to The Mirror.
Will also joked that he "dreaded" the kiss-cam zooming in when he and Kate embraced in the stands during the track cycling competition Thursday night, when Team GB won gold.
