The London Olympics kick off today, and we can't wait to watch the opening ceremonies and then root for Team USA! We're not the only ones getting in the patriotic spirit — the whole United Kingdom have been waving their Union Jacks to celebrate hosting the Summer Games. National monuments have been dressed up, venders have prepped their goods, and proud Brits have been decked out in red, white, and blue to take part in festivities leading up to the kickoff. Plus, celebrities like Harry Potter's Rupert Grint and "Sporty Spice" Mel C. have participated as torchbearers and the British royal family have also been taking part in Olympic events. See all the patriotic excitement across the UK now!
