TBH when I first saw Team GB parade into the Olympic stadium wearing those white and gold outfits, all I could think of was the costuming in the old movie The Music Man. Worse outfits I'd ever seen for an athletic team.

they looked very similar to the ones the GB atheletes wore at the opening Ceremonies of the Olympics - those were by Next as well. .

They're the same outfits, think it was a unity thing between both the Olympic and Paralympic teams.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with The Countess of Wessex and Lady Louise Windsor are at the Cycling Events in the Velodrome. Cute images of Catherine and Louise, an awesome duo who should socialise together more often!!

Yay! So glad to see her! But these adverts are killing me! BBC should have broadcasted the paralympics as well.

The royals got to see a great British world record too from Sarah Storey, who could probably mix it with the able-bodied athletes tbh.

There were some cute images of William, Catherine, Louise and Sophie doing the Mexican wave at the Velodrome. Too much cuteness for me this morning. All we need is James now.

She looks lovely with her long blonde curls.

I guess we were spoilt with BBC uninterrupted hours of coverage because Channel 4 as well as the adverts is awful, the presenters aren't the same and the fact that today we have 3, 3 hour programs and then it goes back to normal week day telly is annoying. I heard that the BBC didn't bid enough for the paralympic games, but Channel 4 are not doing it justice.

EVERY picture of Anne I've seen this summer, the girl is wearing sunglasses. She should take them off for once so everyone can see her pretty face!

There is a reason women wear sunglasses, whilst it hasn't been particularly warm this summer the sun has shone at awkward angles.

Why was Anne wearing sunglasses at night? Corey Hart wannabe much? And what was she crying about?

Unless it is in one of the videos, I cannot see a picture of Anne wearing sunglasses.
The only picture of Anne is this one, with no sunglasses on.

I adore Louise's blonde ringlets, they look so lovely. I want to scrunch them, however, to make them more ringlet shaped as opposed to brushing them, which is what it looks like she does with her hair.

Channel 4 also have 3 other channels available, as well as C4 and More4. I know it will never be as good as the BBC, but this is the first time the Paralympic's has had so much coverage.
