The Jamaican sprinter was Prince Harry's sporting rival in Jamaica way back in 2002. In a photo from Express, the two were seen shaking their hands. This gesture signified that they were already on good terms after what happened during their race back then.

Bolt then turned to the social media Twitter to update his 3.41 million followers about the royal meeting. He posted "meeting with royals" which was accompanied with the hashtag #RayalFamily and a picture of their meeting.

Earlier that day, Daily Mail reported that the royal trio visited the athlete's village accompanied by the village chieftain Sir Chris who was also a successful Olympian in the country. During their tour, the royal trio toured around recreation facilities for the athletes.

Prince William was all smiled as he played a computer game at the venue with some of the members from the Welsh women's hockey team. Prince William chatted and exchanged hand gestures with the local schoolchildren.

Kate Middleton showed her sporty side as she joined the traditional South African aiming game called three tins. She wowed the audience as she knocked down all three tins using a ball. She then ran to the middle of the square, rebuilt the tin cans tower, and hoped over the pile.

The Duchess of Cambridge also met with young athletes at the SportsAid Charity where she is a patron. The organization helps in developing and training budding sports enthusiasts and some of the young athletes joined the Commonwealth Games.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Prince William met with the teenagers at the Royal Foundation called Coach Core. The foundation assists the teenagers in acquiring coaching and leadership qualifications.

After their visit to the sports charities, all three slipped quietly into the Hampden Park in the afternoon and watched the Commonwealth Games.
