The 2016 Olympic Games kick off in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, this week, and we aren’t the only ones who are excited: Britain’s royal family recorded a sweet video to cheer on Team GB. Power trio Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry are making sure their country’s 366 Olympic athletes know that they have royal support.

“London 2012 saw this country come alive with a passion for sports. It saw people of all ages and from all walks of life join together to support Team GB,” the Duke of Cambridge says in a moving video, featuring scenic shots of the South American city and footage of the 2012 games—including the royals cheering from the stands.

“Each member of team GB will have a unique journey, but they all share the same aim: to deliver the best performance they possibly can,” Prince Harry added.

“We have some of the most passionate sporters in the world and we cannot wait to cheer on our athletes together this time around in Rio,” Prince William said. “We can’t wait to watch everyone compete. Good luck,” added his wife, the Duchess of Cambridge.

“Let’s top 2012. Bring on the great,” Harry said. With these passionate, athletic royals behind them, we can’t wait to see what Team GB brings to the games. Watch the full video above.
