Let the (glamour) games begin!

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William kicked off the London 2012 Olympic celebrations Friday during a gala at The Royal Albert Hall, hosted by the British Olympic Association.

Kate, 30, donned a teal Jenny Packham floor-length gown and wore her hair up at the event – called Our Greatest Team Rises – which raises money to back Great Britain’s team at this year’s Games.

Kate and William (and his brother Prince Harry) are ambassadors to the British Olympic delegation and the British Paralympics squad.
