I shall pay more attention to "Olympic" royals in future - starting with Baron Pierre de Coubertin !

Princess Anne looks great in front of 10 Downing Street; if she weren't a royal, what a great PM she would make!
Love this picture of the Prime Minister greeting the Princess; very proper and gallant.

It's simply lovely that she's taken such an interest.

I think she's been more than interested all along as she is a member of the London organizing committee for the 2012 Olympics. She's been active in the Olympics for quite a while and if my semi-awake memory serves me correctly, she's also on the IOC.

She is a member, and I know all of the above but she doesn't have to take an interest it's a passion of hers which like I said is lovely.

Well done Anne for taking on this initiative. With HM Diamond Jubilee celebrations, there has been little excitement about the upcoming Olympics.

Oh I totally agree. When I first heard the words London Olympics, the first royal to come to mind for me was Anne. Her role so far in these games I think really have been understated but mostly because of the Jubilee approaching. Once those celebrations have passed and the main focus is on the Olympics, I do hope there'll be more coverage of Anne's involvement.

The Princess Royal is an “unsung hero” of the London Olympics and deserves more credit for her role in securing and staging the Games, London 2012 chairman Sebastian Coe and sports minister Hugh Robertson said on Thursday.

Over to you London: Olympic Flame officially handed over to city in historic Athens ceremony
Quote:
The Olympic Flame was officially handed over to London today in an Athens ceremony, featuring a 2012 delegation including David Beckham, Boris Johnson and Princess Anne. The historic event took place in a rain-hit sundown ceremony at the Panathenaic stadium in Athens, venue of the first modern Olympics in 1896. But the flame stayed lit and will now make its way back to the UK where it will start a 70-day 8,000 mile relay around Britain.

Compete at Olympics? No, I would hate it! Princess Anne happy to accept watching brief
Quote:
Princess Anne has admitted she would 'hate' to compete at the London 2012 Games. The Princess Royal is president of the British Olympic Association, an IOC member, and competed in at the 1976 Games in Montreal but says the pressure and media intrusion from competing in London would have been hard to cope with.
