King Juan Carlos, Prince Felipe and Infanta Cristina are fond of sailing, they regularly take part in trphies, etc. Infanta Elena likes horse racing (she is the only one in the family, I think), and Inaki is fond of handball (obviously ).

King Carl XVI Gustaf - car racing, boating, yachting, skiing (he has skied Vasaloppet three times - the longest cross country ski race in the world which is 90 kilometres long)
Queen Silvia - skiing
Crown Princess Victoria - golf
Prince Carl Philip - car racing (has a license to compete), skiing (has competed in Vasaloppet once), football, swimming

All Royals love to ski
Greek and Spanish Royals are very fond of sailing: King Constantine, Queen Sofia, King Juan Carlos, Infanta Cristina and Prince Felipe all went to the Olympic Games in sailing and KC won the olympic gold in 1960, Iñaki Urdangarín (Infanta Cristina's husband) was the captain of the Spanish handball team who got bronze medals in 1996 and 2000.

I can't believe that she is 71! She is in such good shape, and she looks absolutely fantastic. I am not even half her age, and she makes me feel quite lazy! The people of Norway must be very proud of her.

Marie-Chantal of Greece loves to ski. So does Princess Marie of Denmark. I've also read that Crown Princess Mary of Denmark loves to play golf. She has a membership at a few golf clubs, and is reportedly an avid golfer (or at least she once was).
