I got photos of a couple of royals giving out medals from my seats at the Paralympic games both yesterday and today.

Prince Daniel of Sweden


Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark



The Earl of Wessex (from a very very long way away!)

I watched the ceremony and he was very respectful. He crossed his hands low on his chest and bowed. This is a real mark of respect. I was impressed at the time. Creating issues where they dont exist also creates divides which we really do not need.

Yea, I really see absolutely nothing in the story about her student that could be construed as offensive to anyone in any way.

surrounded by women and loving it....

He's such a charming guy
Great pictures! Henry's definitely at ease around people (especially the opposite gender ).

It's great that he allows his 'fans' take a picture with him. Definitely points in my book. As for the Cambridges, I think they go on tour next week. It's going to be a rather packed agenda for them too.

Completely agree about Lady Louise. She is such a smiley and happy little girl and it's a joy to see pictures of her. It's great that she was able to attend some of the Paralympic events and spend some time with her cousins from both sides of the family. Hopefully we'll see her soon.

I wish I could have attended some events, I am quite jealous of those who have attended and even more jealous that you got to see some of our Royals present medals. :)

Frederik is so darn handsome, I love his fashion sense and his salt and pepper hair. He and Haakon are by the most handsome Crown-Princes around.

I do love the images some of the photographers have captured at these games. They managed to get the Royals at the most amusing of times.

Sophie was caught in amusing images this afternoon when watching the Wheelchair Rugby.

I think Sophie gets the award for the British Royals as most enthusiastic spectator at these Paralympic's. Her reactions are priceless.

From the website of the Swedish Sports Organization for the Disabled and The Swedish Paralympic Committee, photos of Daniel at the Paralympics.

Gold for Alex Zanardi, I'm so happy for him! I remember that awful accident and I have followed his career for a long time.

Yes, Frederik is quite a handsome man, in a distinguished and sophisticated sort of way. Sophie's facial expressions crack me up. Her enthusiasm is quite contagions.

That shade of pink is very becoming on Sophie.

Sophie looks amazing at Paralympic Ball

And I love this picture of Sophie, from today when she consoles Britain's women's Goalball team after they lost to Sweden in the quarter-final of the Women's Goalball

Thanks, my particular favourites are when Sophie has folder her arms and is leaning on the barrier. "This is my bored face." And then the images where she has her arms folded but her facial expressions say, "Oh, no you didn't!"

Swedish gold medalist, swimmer Maja Reichard tells at her blog, that she had dinner with prince Daniel (there were other medalists too), which was very nice, he presented Maja's gold medal in the swimming pool at the ceremony which was very cool. Daniel was very nice and down to earth person, he was easy to talk to.

Princess Eugenie is at the Athletic's this evening. Saw her as the camera panned across her, though no images available as yet.

EDIT: Eugenie is presenting the medals for the Men's 100m T46, she is stunningly pretty and definitely the prettiest of the Queen's grand daughters. The Princess Royal and her husband Sir Tim Laurence were watching their niece present the medals.

Daniel strikes me as someone that would be very easy to talk to and get along with. What a great memory to have.

Ahh, Edward's funky ties come into play again . Wonder if the kiddos helped him pick it out this morning.
