Prince Harry has a front row seat for the Olympic beach volleyball.
The royal schedule for the games has been revealed and the prince, his brother Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine - who are all ambassadors for Team GB - will be at a number of events throughout the games.
The young royals will get to watch the men's 100m sprint final, men's diving - supporting British hopeful Tom Daley - tennis, gymnastics, swimming, sailing, football and hockey events.
They will also cheer on their cousin, Zara Phillips, as she competes for the British equestrian team at Greenwich Park.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: 'William, Catherine and Harry are very excited about the Olympics and the Paralympics.
'Catherine is especially pleased she can watch the women's hockey team because she has trained with them.'
The young royals will attend around 30 events in total, with Catherine attending the most, followed by Harry then William. William will attend less events as he has to take the second week of the Olympics out due to his work commitments as a Search and Rescue pilot.
The whole ceremony will be declared open by Queen Elizabeth on Friday (27.07.12), while the entire royal family will attend events at the games.
