How good it is to see other families like the Luxembourgs who are so friendly and loving, Willem and Maxima, Phillippe and Mathilde, Haakon and Mette Marit.
The only nice ones of the Brits are Edward and Sophie. Good for them!

It is largely to do with Edward and Sophie being the usual British representatives at European Royal gatherings, for birthdays and weddings etc. Charles, Anne and Andrew have done a few but Edward and Sophie tend to be the ones who go most. They also get invited to birthdays as friends, even when the occasion is not a state occasion (Martha-Louise's birthday and Willem-Alexander's.) as they are now friends with these families.

Indeed, and the rarity of these moments makes them all the more special to witness.

Amalia is adorable! She & her family must be having a wonderful experience at the games! They look like a fun group

Ahm . . . wasn't Frederik supposed to have a bit of strained relationship with his parents for much the same reason Charles is with his parents?

I can see how this sort of tension could be a problem!

Here's another sweet moment between the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. I think Wills makes a great pillow, based on how often Kate rests her head on his shoulder (courtesy of ghost_night554).

She looks to be leaning in to show him something on her hand...not exactly resting her head on his shoulder in that pic, imo.

I love this couple. It seems that as time goes by they are loosening up and becoming more relaxed in public. Although let's face it, it's easy to be relaxed at the games as they are not the focus but merely spectators . . . . except of course for the ever present media.

But I can't moan about them because the photo's of many royals taken at the games have been utterly brilliant. It seems they are all in holiday mode so they don't have to act ever so very "proper"! Instead we get the real deal . . . candid snaps of normal, relaxed, happy, excited and, on occasion, romantic people.
