William, Harry & Kate: British Olympic Ambassadors!

by at . Comments

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are joining forces in their official new roles as ambassadors to the British Olympic and Paralympic teams.

Sadly, Pippa Middleton is not royalty and thus, will not be participating along with the aforementioned, adorable trio. She remains royally cute, however.

The Royals are part of a group of 27 other ambassadors named from among Britain's most inspirational and accomplished Olympians from previous games.

In the cuteness department, team Great Britain has already won gold.

"Catherine, Harry and I are honored" and "hugely looking forward to an incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer's games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence," William said in a statement.

"London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people – particularly the young – to be the best they can be," he added.

Their offices at St. James's Palace said the Royals will "use their roles to promote the importance of participation in Olympic and Paralympic sport and encourage greater awareness of the Olympic and Paralympic values."

For Kate Middleton, the appointment positions her in another major national role after her being named a patron for the country's Princess Foundation.

Among themselves, all three are athletic: William, an avid swimmer, hopes to run a marathon, takes part in soccer and rugby, and plays tennis with Kate.

She played hockey at school, and still loves the game, as well as tennis. William's younger brother Harry is a major rugby and polo enthusiast.
