Having a worldwide event in the UK without royalty would be like having the Summer Olympics themselves minus the gymnastics and the swimming!

With the opening ceremony set for this Friday (gear up sports fans or more specifically, all members of the human race), the social schedule has been released for the games most majestic spectators.

While the youngins plan to carry the royal torch throughout the events, according to a press release, their elders are mostly getting in on the action during its opening weekend.

On Friday, the Queen is having a reception at Buckingham Palace, then she and the Duke of Edinburgh will tour the Olympic facilities the following day.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will party with the Queen, before moving on to the opening ceremonies.

They both will be on hand for the Men’s Cycling Road Race. Then in the following days, Charles will watch badminton and Camilla is going to get in on all sorts of equestrian action.

Not that the games need anymore promotion (it’s the Olympics people!), but it will be nice to see Europe’s most famous fam cheering on their countrymen, and it’s hard to imagine that these athletes won’t rise to the occasion of the royal touch!
