When it comes to Prince William and Kate Middleton, we’re mostly used to seeing them looking pretty bored at formal events, or politely smiley at charity do’s. Always elegant, always a bit stiff upper lip. We like them like that.
Little did we know we’d totally ADORE them when they let themselves go loose a bit at the Olympic velodrome yesterday. After cheering on Andy Murray at the tennis in Wimbledon in south-west London, they zipped across town to the cycling in east London and really got into the spirit of things.
As well as taking part in (perhaps not the most patriotic of activities) Mexican waves, they jumped up and down and cuddled each other as Sir Chris Hoy, Philip Hindes and Jason Kenny stormed through the team sprint and won a gold medal for Team GB.
Prince Harry was also there, looking cheeky and taking photos of the match on his phone. David Cameron was also there getting down with the yoof and looking smug.
Another little detail we noticed was - just like everyone else who goes into the VIP bits in the Olympic park - they had to wear little lanyards with IDs on them. Except, of course, theirs said ‘The Duke of Cambridge’ and ‘The Duchess of Cambridge’ and ‘Prince of Wales’ and not ‘Mr so-and-so’.
But yeah, apart from that, totally just like everybody else. We love how the Olympics has shown us normal, relaxed, huggy side to the royals. Don’t you?
