The Olympic Summer is not quite over for the British royals.

Prince Harry, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William are set to attend a bevy of events to support the London 2012 Paralympic Games, which begin on Wednesday.

William and Kate, both 30, will attend the opening ceremonies for the international multi-sport event where athletes with a physical disability compete in their roles as Official Ambassadors for Paralympics GB.

On Thursday, the two have an action packed day planned at Olympic Park, where they will attend goalball, track and swimming events. Over the weekend, they are expected to attend the Games’s largest sporting event, athletics, during which 1,100 athletes compete for 170 gold medals.

On Monday, all eyes will be on a presumably clothed Harry, 27, who is set to make his first public event appearance since his Las Vegas nude photo scandal.

No stranger to swimming pools, the feisty Royal will attend the swimming challenge before visiting the Paralympics GB House and attending the WellChild awards – one of his charities.
