Prince William and Kate Middleton added some royal flair to the first full days of the Paralympic Games in London Thursday.
Wearing a red polo shirt, the 30-year-old Middleton could be seen laughing with her royal husband and cheering from the stands at London’s Olympic Velodrome as British cyclist Sarah Storey broke a world record.
They also brought new meaning to the term, the “Royal Wave,” by thrusting their arms in the air with the 6,000 or so other spectators in the stands.
The Dutchess’ much more casual look came after a late night in which she stunned during the opening ceremony. Middleton wore a cream dress by DAY Birger et Mikkesen, trimmed with gold that she previously wore to her cousin Zara Phillips' wedding, US Magazine reported.
Conspiciously absent was the Duke of Cambridge’s younger brother Harry, who has been keeping a low profile since photos of him playing strip billiards with several women in Las Vegas surfaced early last week.
The rowdier royal has been quietly toiling since the scandal broke, but is expected to return to the public eye next Monday, attending the Paralympics swimming events.
At the end of the 12-day Paralympics, William and Kate will be departing for a tour of the Far East as part of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. Middleton will make her first speech outside Britain as a member of the royal family, speaking at a Kuala Lumpur hospice on Sept. 13.
