Olympic update: Bisnow runs into royalty!

Olympic update: Bisnow runs into royalty!
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, with British gymnast Rebecca Tunney, the youngest British athlete competing in the London Olympics.
Like Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Bisnow was at the North Greenwich Arena in London a few nights ago to watch the British men win silver and bronze in gymnastics at the 2012 Olympics. (Kate, by the way, is chatting with 15-year-old Rebecca Tunney, the youngest athlete on the entire British Olympic team.) The Brits earned medals in individual event finals on pommel horse, an apparatus that confounds the rest of the world but somehow makes them feel comfortable. (There's a joke in there somewhere, right?)

Here we are in the media gallery at the Opening Ceremony (you know, that event where the Queen parachuted into the stadium.) We were heading down to the mixed zone to interview some athletes after the men's team final when we crossed Princes William and Harry ducking out a side door with their entourage. Our observations:Prince William is really, really tall. Prince Harry is not nearly as chubby as he sometimes looks in pictures.
