Spoiler Alert: Results from the Olympic Games are available live online, several hours ahead of the telecasts. If you'd rather find out how the athletes fare on TV, stop reading here!
It wasn't your everyday family outing.
On Monday as the Queen's granddaughter Zara Phillips competed in the difficult cross-country portion of Olympic equestrian event, her relatives Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Camilla all applauded enthusiastically from the stands, as about 50,000 other spectators – including Phillips's mother, Princess Anne – viewed from along the 3.5-mile, 28-obstacle course.
Five minutes after setting off on her horse High Kingdom, Phillips, wearing No. 40, negotiated the Tower of London fence, eliciting tremendous applause – including from her cousins. Sitting between William and Camilla, Kate, who wore a pale blue Team GB badge on the right lapel of her navy blue jacket, also beamed a huge smile.
And there were more smiles to come.

It seems everyone is getting ready for the London Summer Olympics, even Prince Charles. (Who did your uniform, Your Majesty, Ralph Lauren?)
Here, in a photo taken Wednesday, the next in line to the throne, 63, attempts the new climbing wall in the gym at the Grainville Secondary School in St. Helier.
The Prince of Wales, accompanied by wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, also visited with students at the school before meeting a crowd of about 1,000 people in the Central Market. The visit was all part of the royal couple's tour to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

She may be married to a prince and could one day become Queen of England, but the Duchess of Cambridge apparently is still outranked when it come to having to curtsy to "blood princesses" in the royal family.
As a result, should Kate happen to see husband Prince William's cousins – such as Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, or Queen Elizabeth's daughter Princess Anne – she should show the proper mark of respect, it was reported in the Sunday Telegraph.
The rule of protocol comes after the Queen reportedly underlined the order of precedence in the family by circulating a memo to the various branches of the royal family in Britain.

Prince William got some beaming support from Kate Monday during the annual service for the illustrious order of chivalry, the Order of the Garter.
Wearing the traditional plumed hat and long, deep purple velvet robe, he walked down from Windsor Castle to the service alongside his father Prince Charles as his wife smiled at him outside of St. George's Chapel.
Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, in an Alexander McQueen coat and hat by Jane Corbett, was with Charles's wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Sophie Wessex and other royal relatives watching the procession from the Galilee Porch.

When it comes to Royal Family affairs, here's a motto the palace could get behind: double, or nothing.
Once again, Prince William and Kate made for a fairy-tale moment Tuesday as they marked the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with another carriage ride through London – this time, in the processional back to Buckingham Palace from Parliament Square. (Not that they're strangers to this fancy form of transportation: They rode via carriage last summer in Ottawa while celebrating Canada Day.)

God Save The Queen!
Queen Elizabeth cut something of a lonely figure as she processed down alone the aisle of London's St. Paul's Cathedral for Tuesday's special service to mark her Diamond Jubilee.
With her husband, Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in the hospital, Her Majesty, 86, took her place at the end of the procession, a few paces behind her son Prince Charles, 63, and his wife Camilla.
Just ahead of the trio was the the Duchess of Cambridge in a dusty pink Alexander McQueen dress and Jane Taylor hat.

Never too old to learn a new trade, Britain's Prince Charles received some guidance on the finer points of scratching and fading a record while visiting an employment skills workshop in Toronto Tuesday.
The tutorial came during his and wife Camilla's four-day visit to the city, all part of the Diamond Jubilee marking his mother Queen Elizabeth's rule over the Commonwealth. Two weeks ago, Charles, 63, tried out as a TV weatherman in Scotland, and proved he could point to a map with the best of them.
But how was he as a deejay?

When two adorable dogs presented themselves to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall in a receiving line in Denmark on Monday, the royal couple did what comes naturally: They leaned in for some puppy time.
The Prince of Wales bid hello to a friendly Jack Russell terrier – a dead ringer for The Artist star Uggie – while Camilla, who followed closely behind, patted another lucky pooch.

There's a new sheriff in town – sort of.
Yes, that's Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and she's pulling a (fake) gun during a visit to the set of the Danish show The Killing Monday in Copenhagen.
According to reports, Camilla, a big fan of the European murder mystery series (which has been adapted in English for U.S. audiences by AMC), plotted the set visit, in an abandoned scrapyard, as part of her Scandinavian tour. She was joined on set by Denmark's Crown Princess Mary and the show's star Sofie Grabol.
"I think it is really surreal. But it's lovely that she wanted to come here," Grabol, who plays Detective Sarah Lund, told the U.K.'s Press Association. "I told her last night to wear flat shoes. This is not really an inviting place for a royal visit."
Camilla reportedly watches the show with Prince Charles, according to the show's creator Soren Sveistrup, who met the couple Sunday at a reception hosted by the British ambassador.

She's getting it straight from the horse's mouth!
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, visited the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery headquarters yesterday, spending a few affectionate moments with the four-legged members of the saluting battery. In between feeding mints to the animals, Camilla had a few laughs – and even a little scare.
While most of the horses stayed polite in their interactions with the Duchess, one aggressive animal pushed her, prompting the Duchess to scold the offending horse.
