Prince William and Kate Middleton have added a new title to their resumes.
The royal newlyweds -- along with William's brother, Harry -- have been named Official Ambassadors for the 900 Great Britain and Northern Ireland-based Olympic and Paralympic athletes competing in London's 2012 Olympic Games.
The trio will join 27 of Britain's most esteemed Olympians who were also appointed as ambassadors.
"Catherine, Harry and I are honored to be Ambassadors for Team GB and Paralympics GB. London hosting the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will inspire so many people -- particularly the young -- to be the best they can be," William, 29, told Us Weekly in a statement Thursday.
"We are hugely looking forward to this incredible sporting competition, but are also looking beyond next summer's Games to the springboard it will provide for future success and excellence," his statement continued.
The royal couple's participation in the Olympic ambassador program follows The Queen's patronage of the British Olympic Association.
