Kate Middleton, Prince William Observe Opening Ceremony At 2012 Summer Olympics in London (PHOTOS)
The Royal couple observed the festivities from their own private box, where they were seen smiling and pointing as director Danny Boyle‘s dazzling show got underway.
Once again, Middleton lived up to her title as the fashionable member of the Royal family, donning a light blue ensemble, while her husband wore a classic navy suit and red tie.
Middleton, 29, Prince William, 30 and Williams’ younger brother, Harry, 27, will be prominent figures throughout the Games, which will begin hosting competition Saturday morning.
Middleton is expected to attend field hockey, sailing and tennis events, and Harry will be on hand to watch the beach volleyball matches.
All three will watch cousin Zara Phillips compete with Britain’s equestrian squad, as well.
During the ceremony, William and Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, filmed a tongue-in-cheek short film with Daniel Craig, in which Her Majesty and Craig (as James Bond) parachuted out of a helicopter into Olympic Stadium.
A delayed broadcast of the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony air Friday evening on NBC, beginning at 7:30PM Eastern.
