Before the event starts, I would just like to remind everyone that this thread is for news and photos on royals/royal attended events at the IOC Session.

Information regarding Presidential attendance (Obama, da Silva, etc) and what they are doing in Copenhagen should be posted in the Olympic Games 2016 - It's decision time in Copenhagen, October 2nd thread in the 'In The News' forum. Posts relating specifically to a President/public figure with no royal mention will be moved if they are posted here.

Please also post preferences on candidate cities in that thread too.

Thank you
JessRulz for the Danish Moderators

While the royals are staying are they treated by Denmark as if they are on a State Visit or private business?

Many royals are attending this event who are part of the IOC and repreenting their country, how come they arent invited? I know that the Bahraini delegation are already in Denmark (members of the ruiling family)

Ugh...Oprah's attending. I'm sure Ms. Winfrey will be loving that! Perhaps no one told her Her Royal Majesty Queen Raaniaaaa isn't present...

I certainly hope we get to see alot of photo's over the next week. Notably where royals are concerned, naturally. And the Obama's...I quite like them.

Michelle....I usually love your clothes but what are you wearing?!

Mary looks great as always. Does she ever have a bad clothes day? No need to answer, I know she does.

I am sorry, I love Queen Margethe...but if I see that suit one more time.

Henrik and Frederick look good.

Sorry to digress into fashion. It looks like this was a nice visit. I wish I understood Danish!
