For this event only, approximately a billion people are expected to watch the opening ceremony worldwide.
The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh will lead the Opening Ceremony at the 80,000-seat Olympic Stadium. Buckingham House officials also revealed that the couple, who have long been strong supporters of the Olympics, will open the Paralympic Games on August 29, a first for the Queen.
