The Duchess of Cambridge has attended the launch of a photographic exhibition of London 2012 stars.
With excitement building ahead of the start of the Olympics, Kate toured the images of famous faces and newcomers all hoping for medal success.
The duchess arrived at London's National Portrait Gallery for the viewing wearing a short-sleeved electric blue Stella McCartney dress.
Kate appeared to have got into the Olympic spirit accessorising the dress with a large gold-coloured chain that had a ring on each shoulder, another further down on each side and a large hoop at the bottom.
A St James's Palace spokesman said of the necklace:
The duchess has a close connection with the National Portrait Gallery as she is its patron and has a formal role with the Olympics as an ambassador for Team GB and ParalympicsGB.
During the visit, Kate was shown around by Director of the National Portrait Gallery, Sandy Nairne.
During her visit, Kate spoke to the oldest Olympic flame torchbearer, 100-year-old Diane Gould.
Mrs Gould was photographed by Nadav Kander.
The duchess also listened to a speech by Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, the UK's most successful Paralympian and an ambassador for the London 2012 bid team.
Dame Tanni told guests:
The exhibition - Road to 2012: Aiming High - is the third and final instalment of a three-year project that has showcased world-class Olympic and Paralympic athletes and those working behind the scenes.
Last year, the Changing Pace exhibition was staged and in 2010 Setting Out was the name of the inaugural event.
Sandy Nairne, the gallery's director, said of the exhibition:
