From waving to royal watchers – to doing the Wave.

Prince William and Kate, who have become regular fixtures at the 2012 Summer Olympics, were caught up in the spirit of the London Games Thursday as they gave their hands to the stadium tradition.

All smiles, the royal couple, both 30, joined the crowd to raise their arms in the air (which creates a crest-like visual effect).

The Duke and Duchess have also been on the receiving end of the cheering, namely when they were greeted by Team GB’s finest during a visit to Athletes’ Village earlier this week.
