William, Kate and Harry Welcome Torch Relay to Buckingham Palace

Good evening to you all,

Olympic spirit really is everywhere. Are you excited to watch the games? There was a tremendous buzz in London this evening when William, Kate and Harry welcomed the Torch Relay to Buckingham Palace.

William, Kate and Harry are said to be incredibly excited about the games and their roles as Olympic Ambassadors. William gave a speech at Beacon's College earlier today where he said 'The Olympic and the Paralympic games are a great moment for our nation. Over the next month, the eyes of the world will be on Great Britain' (See today's earlier post for more on that)

The royal trio viewed the 'torch kiss' between torchbearers Wai Ming-Lee and John Hulse who carried the torch out of the palace where he was escorted by members of the Household Cavalry as he travelled along Constitution Hill.

It is the penultimate day of the Torch Relay the torch travelled through the heart of Camden to Westminster today.

Kate teamed her polo shirt with a pair of Zara Skinny Blue Jeans (With thanks to Veronica) Many of you felt they were 'too skinny' and didn't work with the t shirt.

The day will finish at Hyde Park where classic soloist Tyler Rix will light a celebration cauldron on stage at the final evening celebration of the Olympic torch relay. Acts including Mark Ronson and The Wanted will perform. You can watch a video from the torch relay here.
