Olympics 2012: The Scene
What's it like in London during the Games?
Kate Middleton was back to her cheerleader ways as she watched Great Britain grab its first field hockey medal in 20 years on Friday.

Dressed in a white Team GB sleeveless polo shirt and knee-length skirt, the Duchess of Cambridge — accompanied by a couple of bodyguards, of course — applauded from the stands as the British women’s field hockey team won the bronze medal in the final match, beating New Zealand 3-1 at Riverbank Arena.

It certainly isn’t the first time Prince William‘s wife has showed support for her home country at the Olympics.

And Middleton has perhaps served as somewhat of a good luck charm.

Making the rounds at the 2012 games, Middleton has seen Team GB rack up its most successful results in years. As Olympics 2012 near its close, Great Britain is already taking home 59 medals.

After Middleton jumped for joy as the British field hockey team took the bronze, the Duchess congratulated the players on their victory and commented on the great atmosphere in the stadium.

As a former field hockey player herself, Middleton was no doubt thrilled to be on hand as the team made history.

On Thursday, Middleton and her brother-in-law, Prince Harry, made the rounds at the Olympic Park together, sharing laughs as they greeted members of Team GB who have already won medals.
