Prince Harry flirts with Team GB hockey team at Palace reception
Swimmer Ellie Simmonds, 21, who won her fifth gold medal in Brazil in August, was thrilled to go to Buckingham Palace as the Royal Family honoured the sporting heroes of Rio.
Equestrian Eric Lamaze won his second individual and third career Olympic medal when he won bronze in the individual jumping event at Rio 2016. A six-way jump-off in the final round saw Lamaze and Fine Lady 5 complete the course with one fault to make the podium. It was Lamaze’s first fault of the entire Games, the difference between bronze and first place with his time being the tiebreaker. Winning his third medal, Lamaze becomes the most decorated equestrian in Canadian Olympic history.
Today, Queen Elizabeth held a reception at Buckingham Palace to honour the Olympics and Paralympics teams which have participated in the Brazil Rio De Janeiro Olympics. The reception was attended by Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Princess Anne and Prince Edward. The Duchess wore Alexander McQueen Silk Floral Midi Dress.
