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 :)

  6. I think her Olympic -uniform is fine....no one should care what she wears *that* much.....i just wished her pants were different. Id like to see something like tuxedo style slacks (or trousers). Not something terribly fancy....but ive seen some nicer pants she could wear

  7. Is it just me or do her wedges look black in these photos? Like maybe she has two pairs?

  8. She is really not genuine. I worry for William. Remember when they split up he jumped onto a table in a club and shouted 'I'm free!!!' I'm not sure what this says about Kate. I think she is fake,
