Actually they're attending the athletics this evening, so we won't see them until later. They might be going to watch Mo.

A video clip of a jubilant Frederik almost hugging the Danish Prime Minister. (That's the blonde woman to his right). Kongelig jubel over OL-finale: Kronprinsen lige ved at kramme Helle Thorning

He didn't however..... fortunately,


.....he could have contracted something....

it is very good for morale when your country wins, it perks people up during an economic crisis, their being there, supporting the spanish atheletes would be I think an expense Spain would not object t0

The spanish athletes know that their royal family supports them, the royal family met the team of Spain before the Olympics in Spain.

That is a great video and I definitely understand their joy, I was jumping fairly much in front of the television myself.

What could he have contracted if I may ask?

I'm guessing this was a joke.

Her 'meanness' perhaps, I believe Muhler has a particularly dislike for his PM.

Princess Benedikte was in the Danish open house today! I took a picture of her for you as I happened to be there at that point. She looked very happy and was all smiles to everyone. She was interviewed I guess by the Danish tv. Enjoy!

They seem to be standing to attention for a national anthem there I think.

Interesting that the little boxes with the lights have been left in place at each seat. Presumably they'll be used at the closing ceremony.

Tonight there is a party for the Danish athletes at the National Historical Museum. Present are also QMII, Prince Henrik, Princess Benedikte and CP Frederik.
The DRF will host a reception for the athletes onboard Dannebrog next week.

Here is a gallery: Se billederne: Dansk OL-fest i London | www.sporten.dk

QMII said: "Well done, Denmark" (*) to the rowing team who won gold today.

DR1 also covers the party: Kronprinsen om OL-heltene: Stolt og varm om hjertet

QMII watched the above mentioned rowing team and said afterwards: "It was utterly fantastic. It was a big moment".

Frederik said about the athletes when he went to the party: "You become proud and warm around the heart. (**)
They are doing enormously well in this difficult competition. You don't believe it can get any bigger for each Olympics but th competition is harder and harder for each time.
I have pretty good expectations for tomorrow. There are a couple of medals that are secure, fortunately. I hope they'll be gold.
We can be proud of them and they are good examples to imitate and they have shown that they can do it. They are disciplined and they should have all the glory they can get".
(As so often before, Frederik's quotes can be a bit challenging to translate).

(*) Actually her expression is slightly more modern than this. She has clearly picked up some expressions from her sons and grandchildren.

(**) Danish lesson: Frederik is speaking Copenhagener dialect here. Copenhageners say: I'm warm or cold around the feet. Jutlanders like myself say: my feet are cold/warm.

I see from the DRF calendar that Joachim and our Marie will attend the closing ceremony together with Frederik.

So the rundown for tomorrow is:
we have The Duchess of Cambridge heading down to watch the Gymnastics event at Olympic Park at 14:00BST/9:00am EST/6:00am PST
Afterwards she will visit Team GB house though it remains to be seen if this appearance will take place since she already visited yesterday with her husband.
Then the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge along with Prince Harry will head down to Olympic Park to watch the Athletics event. I am assuming they will watch the 100 M finale tomorrow at 21:50 BST/16:50EST/13:50 PST. The Athletics events begin at 11:00am BST though. I am not sure if this appearance will still take place since they went to Athletics today.

Ghost, you can always be relied upon to provide some great shots of the Cambridges! Thank you so much . I love the one with the Team GB mascot teaching Catherine some 'moves'. That's just priceless . I don't know how some accuse this couple of lacking any sense of fun or humor, because I think they have plenty of both.

Your welcome! I'll be honest the Olympics are killing me in terms of energy. The times and the different events it's so difficult to keep up. But I am LOVING these pics it's something we so rarely see with these two that I'll be sad when all this is over and we won't be getting new pics every day.

I know what you mean, ghost_night! I slept in this morning because I really needed some rest after trying to follow all the coverage so far this week!

You can't see it from the pictures but on the tv last night you could see the Princess Royal and Zara Phillips next to Catherine and William at the Athletics. Zara and Catherine were having a good old gossip.

Let's set the world on fire, William and Kate holding hands at the Opening...

So tomorrow we have the Duchess of Cambridge heading down to watch Team GB compete in field hockey at 4:00pm BST/8:00am PST and 11:00 am EST
I believe BBC3 will be airing it and I imagine usagoals.com will be streaming it.

Ok here's the Channel 9 interview video with William and Harry
A Royal Love Affair

And here's the video of William and Kate at Team GB house
A Royal Love Affair
Thank you for the clips! My Internet finally cooperated, and I could watch the interview along with the other videos. Both princes are obviously very passionate about their roles in the Games as well as the Games themselves. Loved the bit about Catherine and the hockey stick .
