Thanks for the photos!
The couple is lovely. It is great that Countess Stephanie has joined her fiancé and his family.

I think it's because they're so well-known that they just don't need to wear them. All the officials, volunteers etc. will know who they are with one glance. With Anne evidently trying to wear every bit of Team GB kit at once, she'd be hard to identify at first glance, hence she wears her ID. The foreign royals generally wouldn't be recognised by the staff and volunteers, so they need to wear them all the time.

The Queen and DoE didn't wear their name badges either as they're unlikely to be mistaken for anyone else.

when they were at the olympic village today (see Ghost_night's post 204 above) all 3 finally were wearing credentials.

Frankly, that's insulting to the superb athletes competing at the games and to the other royals, British and foreign. While some people on this board and at Hello and the Daily Mail might think the world revolves around William and Kate, it actually doesn't.

There are photos of William, Kate and Harry arriving at the equestrian venue and they are wearing credentials in exactly the same way as the lesser mortals they are with - Eugenie and Beatrice, Mike Tindall and Peter and Autumn Phillips. They obviously just took them off when they got to their seats.

Insulting? EIIR was commenting on a recognition factor. And despite how superb any other athletes are, they dont have the recognition factor of Will, Kate or Harry in the UK. The fact is Philip didnt wear one either when he was with Anne on Sunday - I'm sure he was waved through just fine. Maybe they had them, maybe they didnt. Maybe they hadn't been over to the village to get their credentials yet. I hadnt seen their credentials until this afternoon when they went to the village. The fact is they have security guards with them at all times and there is no doubt who they are and they could be waved through for the events.

I highly doubt that they are the only people with security guards around them. Most royals. presidents and other officials will have a few of those.

For God's sake, the pictures from today show they wear credentials. Why isn't anyone thinking of the possibility that they simply took them off their neck when they sat down at the equestrian events. Occam's Razor everybody. Or those that just get used in one thread and not another? Yes, it must be because they are just sooo recognisable Michelle Obama is pretty recognisable to me and I'm sure to many in the UK and she wore credentials.

CP would have met the Princess Royal. She has been at events in Norway that he also attended. I think it might have been the last big birthday for the King.

You took the words out of my mouth, thanks

I was sure that W & K were wearing credentials when I saw them earlier.

The badges are not only name tags but also necessary in case of an emergency. In case of a catastrophic event it will be difficult to identify faces covered in blood. The badges are an important part of the security arrangements.

Don't think it was mentioned yet but Princess Charlene was at the swimming finals yesterday and looked very thrilled when South-african swimmer Chad LeClos won a gold medal :-)

LOL! Charlene is hilarious I'm in love with pic #7

Nothing scheduled for today for the BRF's but then again their schedules were always tentative and were subject to change.

Stephanie and Guiliaume - I love this couple, mainly because of Stephanie - she is enchanting - but they both are so cute - an example of how love makes us more than we would be alone - synergy!

That's what I thought, I know that they are all recognizable but I thought that for security reasons they needed to wear the badges. Obviously, they had only removed them.
