Aug 8, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Sarah Ferguson and her daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie watched Olympic cycling last night (07.08.12).
The trio were among the 6,000 crowd at the velodrome cheering on Team GB and couldn't hide their delight as they saw Sir Chris Hoy and Laura Trott take gold and Victoria Pendleton pick up a silver medal to add to the gold she achieved earlier in the games.
Prince Harry was also at the velodrome but did not sit with his cousins, instead taking a seat close to his aunt Princess Anne and her son Peter Phillips, as well as former UK Prime Minister John Major and LOCOG chairman Lord Sebastian Coe.
He was seen waving and cheering as Chris picked up his sixth gold medal, becoming Britain's greatest-ever Olympian.
While this was Sarah's first appearance in the Olympic crowd, Beatrice and Eugenie have been in attendance at previous events.
They were among several members of the royal family who cheered their cousin Zara Phillips on to a silver medal in the team event of the eventing last week.
