Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, and her husband Prince William are running down their Olympic Games duties with gold medal precision.

Having the British capital of London as host city and all, it's no surprise that Will and Kate are popping up everywhere representing the crown and Team Great Britain, with a few family obligations along the way.

Monday's equestrian event, for instance, saw William's royal cousin Zara Phillips competing for Team GB. The Duke and Duchess cheered on Zara as she ran a 3.5-mile, 28-obstacle course, joined by Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Zara's mother Princess Anne.

"They're just my family," Phillips told E! News and laughed

William has been a fixture at the game arenas, with the likes David Beckham taking in Britain's soccer match against the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, while Kate stepped out solo on Monday evening for a celebration of Brits employed by the arts.

Alongside Prime Minister David Cameron and designer Stella McCartney, Kate stunned in a lavender dress by Roksanda Ilincic -- a recycled number from her 2011 tour of Canada and California.
