Team GB's Olivia Federici and Jenna Randall hug on the pool deck after competing in the Women's Duets Synchronised Swimming Free Routine Final. The team finished fourth, an excellent result considering the team has never competed before.

No surprises in Kate's choice of outfit today. The Duchess is wearing her white Adidas Team GB Polo shirt, navy jeans, Stuart Weitzman wedges and pearl earrings. Many of you have expressed your disappointment at the lack of variety in Kate's style throughout the Olympics. It would seem she has chosen a specific 'uniform' for the games consisting of Team GB attire, J Brand or Zara jeans, Smythe Blazer, Suart Weitzman wedges or Adidas trainers and pearl earrings. I don't anticipate we will see anything different until the closing ceremony Sunday.

I expect Kate has many stunning looks in the planning for the royal tour in September so certainly something to look forward to in terms of fashion.


After the swimming Kate went to the ExCel Centre located in London's Docklands to watch the women's boxing finals.

BBC sports reporter Leo Mann expressed his surprise at seeing the Duchess and Princess Anne at the boxing.

ExCel opened in 2001 as an international conference and exhibition centre and was expanded in 2010. The centre is home to the Weightlifting, Judo, Boxing, Wrestling, Table Tennis, Taekwondo and Fencing for the games.

Team GB's Nicola Adams overwhelmed China's double world champion Ren Cancan 16-7 to be crowned the first ever Olympic Women's Flyweight boxing champion.

I watched the boxing live and saw Kate applauding Ireland's Katie Taylor when she was announced as the Women's Lightweight Champion beating Russia's Sofia Ochigava with a score of 10-8. A huge congratulations to Nicola and Katie!
