OMG I never thought about this!!!!!(ok calm down, relax, breathe)

Quote:
Paul Harrison ‏ @SkyNewsRoyal #royal #Olympics There's music a plenty tonight at Albert Hall - will we see #William & Kate's first dance together during performance?
Also looks like we'll be getting exclusive shots from Hello!
Quote:
Rosie Nixon ‏ @Rosie_Nixon @SkyNewsRoyal we're the official media partner so will be running around trying to appear calm! See you there for sure
Paul Harrison mentioned to me that considering how much they love Gary Barlow, it's gives us a higher chance of seeing them dancing. I mentioned that they didn't at the concert but then again maybe they'll feel more comfy dancing at a gala instead.

For those who don't remember, last time:
Quote:
During the concert William, Kate and Camilla could be seen clapping along to the music while Charles tapped his hand on the armrest of his chair.
Where as during Concert for Diana
Quote:
Kate, 29, showed herself to be a Take That fan in 2007 at the Wembley concert organized by William and Harry in memory of Princess Diana. She sang along to Back for Good.
And William famously danced along side his brother and friends that same day. They are both famous for loving to dance and have a good time in the past while out at clubs and parties.

Quote:
@RoyalKateDebate a bit of everything - music, speech from Prince William (early on) athletes & celebs, red carpet = TeamGB 'big-up' party.
Alright off to bed see ya guys at 9am PST!

Waiting forward to this event.
It would be absolutely wonderful if we actually saw William and Kate's first "official" dance, so to speak.

Paul Harrison is on the red carpet and interviewing lots of athletes as and when he manages to nab them. Sky News are going back and forward to it. Paul said things were running a bit late.

I'm watching ITV though they're not showing much. I was watching BBC but they were just showing news at the time.

From the pix I've seen long dresses and the men are in tux's
Quote:
Mark Stewart ‏ @RegalEyes Amongst the arrivals on the red carpet at the Olympic Gala are Dame Kelly Holmes, Sir Steve Redgrave and Holly Branson and Fred Andrews
More arrivals...I take it William and Kate should be there soon.

ugh I have to go and they're still not here yet! ugh ok well celebs are still arriving so I take it William and Kate won't arrive till all the atheletes and celebs are inside. I'm sure they're gonna give them the whole carpet to themselves. The host for the gala just arrived.

Men are in tuxes, some women are in floor length gowns, others are in shorter dresses.

BBC News should be better after 7pm, 6-7pm is the main news and sport. Keep an eye on it after 7pm. If not, Sky News is your best bet.

Thanks.
Usually how long after the event starts do the royals make their way (for an event like this)?

Kate's hair is UP! She's wearing a long turquoise dress. Absolutely gorgeous.

Could it be a Victoria Beckham dress? Does it have a zipper down the back?

So we won't be hearing the Greek chorus from the updo brigade.
She did look quite nice from the brief glimpse I saw as they arrived.

I could be completely wrong, but the dress looked too floaty to be Victoria Beckham's. I didn't see the back of it.

The only thing I would say is, she doesn't seem to be wearing a necklace even though the dress has a V neck.

I thought she looked really, really stunning. I never thought her hair would look better up than down, but she looks great with it up this evening.
