Prince William's wife, the former Kate Middleton, was on hand for the women's field hockey semifinal between Argentina and Team GB on Wednesday.

Kate — now known formally as the Duchess of Cambridge— cheered on the home team despite its loss 2-1 to Argentina.

Sporting a white Team GB shirt under a navy blazer, Kate — who captained the field hockey team at her high school— joined the crowds in a round of applause as for the losing team as they left the field.

She had visited with the team prior to the Olympics, taking the field with Team GB players in a morale-boosting mission ahead of the London games.
