Duchess Kate and Prince Harry Visit Team GB House

Duchess Kate and Prince Harry paid a surprise visit to the Team GB house in Stratford tonight.


The Royals met and congratulated athletes on their success in the games thus far. Kate admired gold winning rower Katherine Copeland's medal during their chat.


Katherine Copeland said meeting the Duchess was 'amazing' 

'I've wanted to meet her, all through the Games I've seen her at other sports and I keep missing her. She's gorgeous in real life. They were both really nice. Kate had obviously watched all of our races, which was pretty amazing.  She was really knowledgeable about our sport'.

Prince Harry jokingly mentioned how much he enjoyed seeing Olympic champion cyclists Laura Trott and Jason Kenny kissing behind David Beckham at the games :)
