With the London 2012 Olympics well and truly under way, some famous faces are among the sporting fans getting into the spirit of the event.

Fresh from her starring role in the opening ceremony, alongside none other than James Bond, the Queen has taken time to enjoy the swimming events at the Olympic Park's Aquatic Centre.

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - along with Prince Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie - have been cheering on Team GB jockey Zara Phillips.

And David Beckham might not be royalty - though he could be well on his way to a knighthood after his involvement in bringing the Olympics to the UK - but he made up for being left out of Team GB's football squad by watching alongside

Prince William as they took on the United Arab Emirates.

Prime Minister David Cameron was keeping a lower profile though, as he was spotted travelling to the Games on the tube before taking in the synchronised diving.

A host of television stars have also been tweeting about or spotted at the Games, with the cast of hit series Downton Abbey descending en masse on the Olympic Park.

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden was excited about attending with her mum, while David Walliams tweeted a picture of himself at the venue with wife Lara Stone and comedian John Bishop.
