Prince William and Duchess Catherine
Britain's royal family will be watching events and taking part in ceremonial duties at the London Olympics.
Prince William, Duchess Catherine and Prince Harry will be visiting Team GB House on the ninth floor of Westfield Stratford, cheering the team on, attending the opening ceremony and watching the likes of hockey and football.
A source said: 'This is about them doing what they do best and meeting as many people as possible.
'They won't just be doing ceremonial stuff, they will be really getting stuck in at all levels. They are excited and very committed to their role as ambassadors.'
Prince Harry is said to be particularly keen to meet Usain Bolt again, after he managed to beat him in a sprint by racing ahead of the starter pistol.
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: 'They are very excited and very committed to their role as ambassadors, and the Olympics will be their focus for the whole time the Games are on.
'Prince Harry would very much like to see Usain Bolt again and it will hopefully be possible depending on the athlete's schedule.'
The opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games takes place on July 27.
