Duchess Kate Visits Olympic Village

After spending the day at Greenwich to support Zara Philips (I was delighted to see Team GB win silver) the royals visited the Olympic village.

The village is located in the Olympic Park, within walking distance of the venues. Construction of the Village began in May 2008. There are 11 residential plots, each made up of five to seven blocks built around communal squares and courtyards.

After the games, the Olympic Village will be used for new housing East London. 2,818 new homes will be provided for Londoners and will create a new residential quarter to be known as East Village.

    Again so quick at up dating your post. Did William not attend with his Duchess? Don't see him in the pictures.
    What a thrill for the people on hand in the villaga.

    4. Hi Pauline! William did attend I think. Several members of team gb posted on twitter that they met the royal couple and prince Harry so I take it he was there too :)

  4. On the third photo down(outside the houses)--there is someone in a red baseball cap talking to Rebecca(The swimmer with the bronze medal) I think that could be Prince William as he was carrying a red cap earlier.

  6. Hey! I love your site about Kate. I recently started a website about her style and I was hoping since you have such a huge site dedicated to her that you could take a look at mine and tell me what you think.

    1. Hi Taylor.

      Your site looks great. You're obviously focused on finding Kate pieces at a more affordable/available price and that's definitely very popular at the moment. Twitter and Facebook are great ways to promote your site. The best advice I can give you is to update consistently and enjoy it. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask or email me :)
