The thing is, London is paying for it. No other city is. But every city in the UK will want to experience the games.

The Queen will open the games of course but other than that I wouldn't expect them to play a major role. The Head of State of the host country opens the games and thus it will be the Queen.

The words that she will say at the Opening are standard - no speech at all - but the same words said by all openers in the past.

All she should say is: I declare open the Games of London celebrating the 30th Olympiad of the modern era.

At Montreal she didn't use the name of the city but said:

"I declare open the Olympic Games of 1976, celebrating the XXI Olympiad of the modern era."

She may say something similar next year but that is all she says - no more and no less.

Head of IOC has other things to say but the Head of State of the host nation says the words above.

The speech by the IOC President

The President of the IOC then gives a speech which he ends with, "I have the honour of inviting ... (the Head of State) to proclaim open the Games of the… Olympiad of the modern era."

The Head of State declares the Games open

The Head of State proclaims the Games open by saying: "I declare open the Games of ... (name of City) celebrating the ... Olympiad of the modern era."

Ths is from: Olympic Opening Ceremony Protocol

The Swedish royals usually attend, but seldom the opening cermonies. IIRC they didnt even attend the opening cermony when Lillehammer had the Olympics in 1992

Mary and Frederik will no doubt be at the opening ceremony as well as some of the games and matches Denmark will be competing in. Ditto for W-A and Maxima (and maybe their girls) for the Dutch
