Prince William Sizes Up the Beefcake at the Olympics: PHOTO


Prince William visiting a couple of athletes at the London Games. William also spent some quality time with David Beckham.

Bonus points for those of you who can ID them.

UPDATE: A tipster notes that the guy on the left is rugby player Mike Phillips, so this shot was likely not taken at the Olympics.

  1. Oh my. The benefits of being a Prince. Where is Kate? What happens in the locker room, stays in the locker room. AMEN!

  3. Google image search turned up this picture from 2010.

    Sorry, it's not from the London Games.

  4. it can't be from the Olympics. Willy still has a decent amount of hair on his head.

  5. The athlete on the left in the white shorts, if I am correct, is Jared Fryer (Wrestling, from Miami, Florida) (http://www.nbcolympics.com/athletes/athlete=jared-frayer/index.html)

  6. The flag on the wall is Welsh. The GBR athletes compete under the Union Jack. It's pretty clear that this picture wasn't taken at the Olympics.

  7. @Aaron,

    Don't think so, Jared is 5'-6" tall, Prince William is over 6'. Plus, why would he be visiting American athletes?

    That is a Welsh Flag on the wall, for what it's worth.

  8. The two are both Ruggers, and the picture is fairly old -- 2010. It was not taken at the Olympics.

  10. Wondering what William looks like in shorts and no shirt.

  11. When I would wear a jacket like that, with my hands in my pockets thrust forward like that, there was a reason...

  12. Of course I can name them silly. On the left is my husband number 1 and on the right is my husband number 2.

  13. Yum on the furry guy on William's right, regardless of when it was taken!

  14. Not another non-story from Towleroad but an actual FAKE story. Do we really need to be making stuff up because of a lack of news ?

    Is there any wonder the world thinks gay people are a joke ?

  15. hmmmm...I'm gay and the world doesn't think I'm a joke...just must be you ICEBLOO.

  16. My god, you obviously know nothing about sports or the Olympics. This pic is several years old and has nothing to do with the London games. Pathetic, Towle.

  17. To paraphrase Bryan: My god, you obviously know nothing about the comment section or reading. The error was pointed out a couple of hours ago. Excessive piling on, Bryan.

  18. "The Prince and the Rugby Players" that has slash fiction potential...

  19. wait till his Granny sees this photo......she will not approve!

  20. I don't care when the photo was taken, that is some outstanding Eyecandy!

  21. JFC. Get Prince William out of there!

    Hmmm... shaven, unshaven, shaven, unshaven... can't make up my mind.

  22. When the headline and the story are so obviously baseless, why isn't the story removed from the feed? Sloppy journalism.

  23. Well the guy on the right seems to have a belt on (if you look at the left side) but the right side is missing :/
    and then guy on the left almost seems to be wearing lace underwear. Or is it just me?

  24. The posing of the pic with Wills fully clothed and the other two shirtless makes the rugger players look a little like go-go boys. I'm not complaining; Mike Phillips is devastatingly sexy and can dance on my box any time ;-)
