The Royals and the Torch

The Olympic torched passed by Buckingham Palace today. Prince William, Catherine, and Prince Harry were there to greet it. They'd each appointed representatives from their charities to be torchbearers.
Re: David Beckham since we just talked about him in the previous post - he's yet to run with the flame (right? I don't remember it happening and now I'm in the car and can't google). It's now at Hyde Park for the night before making its way to the Opening Ceremony tomorrow. Presumably then Becks will run a leg of the relay at some point leading up to the lighting of the cauldron.
I love how Kate wears her jeans.
I also can't wait to watch Harry watching beach volleyball. How many cutaways will Danny Boyle allow tomorrow into the Royal Box. I know the dude is all about the art but come on, can we at least have a livestream going online for the Queen's reaction to the dancing Paddington bears?
