Kate Middleton has displayed her zeal for sports as well as for her husband during day six of the London 2012 Olympic Games on Thursday.
The Duchess of Cambridge was all smiles as she watched Philip Hindes, Jason Kenny, and Sir Chris Hoy of Great Britain win the gold and a new world record in the Men's Team Sprint Track Cycling final.
Standing beside her husband Prince William, the pair embraced as they rejoiced the British victory. The rare contact between the royal couple surprised Middleton's legions of fans.
"Cannot handle the cuteness of Kate Middleton and Prince William," posted E! News on their Twitter account.
"How adorable is the royal couple," asked Jane, while OK! Magazine wrote on Twitter: "Kate and Wills' royal cuddles are making us feel all warm and gooey."
Wearing black-belted jeans and a short collared sports top, the Duchess' display of affection for Prince William also revealed her toned midriff. She also lifted her arms during the Olympic event, further disproving rumors of her pregnancy by flashing her flat stomach.
