Victoria Arbiter ‏@victoriaarbiter William, Kate + Harry will greet the Olympic Torch at Buckingham Palace today - the penultimate day of the relay. #royal #London2012
Victoria Arbiter ‏@victoriaarbiter
The Torch will be carried to and from Buckingham Palace by 3 bearers. Each a volunteer from charities whose patrons are the royal trio.
Quote:

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will welcome the Olympic torch to Buckingham Palace later. Iconic moment for London 2012.
Quote:
Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal #royal #William, #Kate and #princeharry will later return to Buckingham Palace to welcome #Olympic torch - stage 69 of 70.
Paul Harrison ‏@SkyNewsRoyal #royal 3 people representing a charity linked to each of three royal #Olympic Ambassadors (#William, #Kate and #Harry) will carry the flame
I am guessing BBC will air the torch's arrival to BP here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/torchrelay

'Roughly 6:33pm'? Couldn't they be more specific? What are we saying, 6:33:15? Or 6:33:45?

(I'm being sarcastic, unless it's not obvious).

Wonder why Kate isn't taking on field hockey.

Hope my favorite basketball coach, the US coach whom I've actually met, gets to meet Harry.

This is a special event about training young people to be coaches. Perhaps field hockey isn't being done here. But she is watching the field hockey at the Olympics

that is too funny! Of course if they had left out the word "roughly" it wouldn't have been nearly as amusing

Thank you, cepe!

Are Will, Kate, and Harry going to teach young people how to be coaches or are they royal patrons, for lack of better words, for these sports in this endeavor?

You're welcome. They are patrons through their foundation. There is a lot about it on the BRF Current events thread (sorry dont know how to do shortcut)

Just seen the live pictures on the ITV news of the torch at Buckingham Palace and the Countess of Wessex plus Lady Louise and Viscount Severn were also in the crowds inside the palace forecourt waving at the torch bearer.

I think Will & Harry purposely picked different color shirts and pants so they wouldnt have 2 matchy photo ops in 1 day
