(CBS News) Britain's royals have gotten into the Olympic spirit during the London Games - meeting athletes, watching events and, in the case of Zara Philips, even competing in them.
But it's been Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, who has been the most visible member of the royal family throughout the Olympic Games.
The former Kate Middleton, 30, has been photographed almost daily since the Olympics began, cheering on Team Great Britain in events from swimming and gymnastics to track cycling, tennis and sailing. She's attended some events with Prince William and Prince Harry, but appeared at a number of others solo.
It's no surprise, given the duchess' personal penchant for sports - she played field hockey in high school and while studying at St. Andrew's University, and is also said to enjoy tennis, swimming and sailing. William acknowledged his wife's athleticism in a speech given one day before the Olympics began, saying, "Catherine...with a tennis racket or a hockey stick is something to behold and be aware of."
Photographers captured the duchess as she watched the events, applauding for victories (she and William embraced in a very public hug during one), covering her face during tense moments and even doing the wave during a match at Wimbledon.
And while she's been supporting Britain's athletes, that didn't stop her from greeting members of the "Fab Five" U.S. women's gymnastics team as they watched the vault finals over the weekend.
Kate's fashion choices have also been Olympics-appropriate. She sported official Olympic gear like Team GB polo shirts and jackets at some events, and dressed in blazers over dresses or jeans at others, often while wearing an official identification badge around her neck (as if she'd be mistaken for anyone else).
