Kate Middleton & Prince William Send ‘the Best of Luck’ to British Olympians

In addition to ringing in Prince George’s birthday this week, Kate Middleton and Prince William are celebrating the start of the Tokyo Olympics.

Ahead of the 2020 games, which kicked off on Friday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge shared a touching message for team Great Britain. “Wishing all the athletes and staff @TeamGB the best of luck this #Tokyo2020 #Olympics,” the couple wrote on Twitter. “Although it won’t be like previous Games, enjoy it and we know you’ll do the nation proud.”

And they weren’t the only members of the fam sending luck to the players. The royal family's official Instagram account re-shared a video from Team GB's official page, with the message, “Wishing #TeamGB every success at the #Tokyo2020 #Olympics. 'I and the whole nation will be cheering you on and proudly supporting you from home' – The Princess Royal, President @TeamGB."

This isn’t the first time William has shown support for his country’s team. In fact, the Duke of Cambridge recently surprised British boxer and Olympian, Lauren Price, for an interview with BBC Sports. The chat took place at Kensington Palace just days ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Lucky for us, William shared the video on the YouTube account he shares with his wife.

During the interview, the duo chatted about Price’s early boxing career, her side gig as a part-time taxi driver and her dreams of becoming an Olympian.

We have a feeling we’re going to see a lot of Will and Kate (and hopefully Prince George) cheering on team GB.
