What's it like in London during the Games?
Though his wedding was broadcast to millions around the world, Prince William is rather shy about packing on PDA with his wife Kate Middletonduring the London Games.

The Duke of Cambridge, 30, admits he’s afraid of the famous Kiss Cam set up at the Olympic Velodrome, where he attended the men’s cycling preliminaries Thursday.

“I was absolutely dreading they were going to come and show myself and my wife and that would have been very embarrassing,” William tells BBC after watching Scottish cyclist Chris Hoy win gold in the men’s team sprint.

“That was absolutely fantastic, the world records being beaten and the atmosphere in there was electric,” says of the match.

This week, William and Kate, 30, were spotted displaying plenty of raw emotion — and PDA! — during Day 6 of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Joined by Prince Harry, the the royal couple cheered on Great Britain’s cycling team as they watched their team break the world record in the qualifying round.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been attending numerous events during the London Games to show support for their athletes, including William and Harry’s cousin Zara Phillips.

The royal horseback rider recently won a silver medal as part of the five-member British equestrian team.

“We as cousins are very, very proud, it now explains why we never get to see her because she is always riding,” says Harry.

However, Phillips wasn’t the only royal to be involved in the Olympics. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II demonstrated her acting chops during the Opening Ceremonies in a pre-taped short film with James Bond actor Daniel Craig.

“We were kept completely in the dark about it, that’s how big the secret was,” William says, adding, “She did such a good performance that she’s been asked to star in the next Bond film. I’m thrilled for her.”
