Infanta Cristina of Spain is very good at sailing, she was the spanish flagbearer at the Seoul'88 Olympic Games and she sails in several regatas like the Breitling and the King's Cup in Mallorca, besides, she is the president of the International Federation for Disabled Sailing, she's also an accomplished classical pianist and she would have liked to be a concertist like her aunt Princess Irene of Greece; Cristina's husband, Iñaki Urdangarín was one of the greatest handball players of Spain (and maybe the world), he went to Three Olympic Games, won two bronze medals and got almost every european and world championships at this sport...

King Frederik IX of Denmark was an accomplished musician and led the Danish Royal Orchestra more than once, there's even a record (album) of him directing it...

Crisiñaki, it's very interesting your information about the great found of pianist player of the Infanta Cristina. Has you ever heard her ? It's very well know the taste of Queen for classical music but i didn't know that she had transmitted her tasts to her girl.

well I've never heard her playing but I found the info here:
http://www.abc.es/informacion/prince.../biografia.asp
in the last paragraph:
The Infanta is a great music lover, she's very good at playing piano and would have liked to be a concertist like her aunt Irene of Greece. In 1990 started the Infanta Cristina Piano Contest ; there's also the International Guitar Contest of HRH Infanta Cristina that is held since 1985 and it's hosted by the Jacinto Foundation and Ignacio Guerrero. She also likes scupture, painting and architecture.

She has two pianos in her house so I guess she plays regularly

The Dutch Royal House has, IMO, the best and most interesting information about the hobbies and interests of their members.

Here are some interesting ones (but not all!):

Queen Beatrix: sailing, sculpting, ballet, painting, and music

Prince Willem-Alexander: flying; sports of all kinds (he must be athletic), including tennis, rock climbing (very interesting), and skating. He even completed Elfstedentocht, the big skating marathon, which must have been quite a task. More info here.

Princess Maxima: nature, the arts, music, dance, and watersports, skiing, and running.

Prince Constantijn: drawing, football, music, cooking, tennis, golf, and skiing.

Princess Laurentien: reading, working out, travelling, tennis, sailing, and photography.

Princess Margriet: reading, the theatre, walking, riding, and the "culture, flora and fauna of the Arctic."

Professor Pieter van Vollenhoven: music (he was part of a trio that gave concerts to aid the Victim Support Fund, which he chairs), golf, diving, and the culture, flora, and fauna of the Arctic.

Prince Maurits: music, cooking, sailing, skiing, and running. He ran the New York Marathon with Princess Marilene and friends.

Princess Marilène: tennis, skating, and running. See above.

Prince Bernhard: windsurfing, sailing, swimming, skiing, and music

Princess Annette: tennis, hockey (interesting), skiing, the internet, and reading.

King Carl Gustaf: the scounts. Apparently he's also quite into technology.
Prince Carl Philip: car racing
King Abdullah: I heard that he was quite into extreme stuff until he became King and then was forbidden to do them. Also, Star Trek.

Queen Margrethe is a noted sculptress. At least according to a documentary I saw at least 10 years ago called "King Christian the IX father-in-law of Europe".
