Winter Olympics 2006 - Turin

I was wondering if the royals attending the Winter Olympics will visit with each other?

Perhaps we can have a thread for news and pictures of the various royals at this winter olympics. Especially if there are photos of royals in groups.

Please feel free to delete this post if it is not suitable

Princess Anne of Britain, Prince Albert of Monaco, & Crown Prince Willem-Alexander of Netherlands are all also present at Turin. They also attended the IOC meeting.

Crown Prince Haakon, King Harald, Crown Prince Frederik, and Princess Benedikte will also visit the Winter Olympic

Sonja isn't going to be there.

Princess Benedikte of Denmark is reported to be at the opening ceremony, by the Danish commentators. And Crown Prince Frederik is supposed to arrive later to follow the Danish Curling team. I think that's good.

I've noticed that the difference between watching the Danish and the Norwegian television - is the commentators. The Norwegian commentators knew almost every flag-bearer by name, and had sports relevant trivia about every single team marching in. The Danish team commented a little bit about the teams marching in, almost nothing about the sports part of it, but plenty about the stuff around - like Berlusconi's absense, the security around the Danes after recent events, and other strange stuff.

What a pittyful turnout of Norwegian athletes, 14 athletes manages to get to the opening out 70 something, I thought it was supposed to be an honor to be at the opening And King Harald could have smiled, he looked like a bored santa with that red thing on his head, he usually always looks like he enjoys sports but not today

It's pityful, indeed. It should be an honour to attend.

Her name seems to be Charlene Wittstock, a swimmer for South Africa.
That is what Bruno press calls her in the pictures...

(info from the topic HSH, Prince Albert - Current Events, Part XVII ).

Lot of athlets are beginning competitions tomorrow. They must prepare, instead coming to the ceremony.

It was a wonderful opening ceremony, and the lighting of the Olympic flame was spectacular!

Oh yes, he looked very sour. Even my mother (who isn't the royalist I am) pointed out how he looked and said something like "if that's the mood he's in today, maybe he should've stayed at home"...

The King and Queen of Sweden will attend the Olympics in Turin from 17 February.

Is the pretty blond sitting next to albert a fling or an olympic committe member or something. I also liked the ceremony and the lighting part was really nice as well as the tenor that came after. I love the Olympics, I always get exited when they come aroud. I also noticed the security around the Danish team. Shame really, this should be a nonpolitical and peacefull time.

The dutch commentator jokingly promised a reward from the person who could identify the beauty who was seated next to Albert :)
I saw the Prince and Princess of Piedmont, Marina in brown furs I believe. Willem-Alexander and Maxima were also there, apparenly Maxima danced on the YMCA (I missed that part).

The show was very nice, and it is always a joy to see Sophia Loren of course :)
