A large picture of the DRF out in force to support Princess Nathalie at equestrian: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...nathalie-7.jpg

With Nathalie herself, riding Digby: http://www.bt.dk/sites/default/files...e-og-digby.jpg

She was indeed pleased with the family-supporters, but said with a grin: "That's funny, they are normally never there".

She added: "My mother was there (to support her) but my father is sitting at home in front of the telly".

Alas, Nathalie didn't win any medals.

You might want to have a look at many pictures of the Princess Royal over the past two weeks. I don't think she's missed a day of events. Twitter feeds about royals are almost solely about The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Harry. Anyone else who happens to be there are secondary to the 'popular' kids. Take a look, http://www.gettyimages.co.uk/Search/...setType=image#

- Opening Ceremony
Day 2 - 5 = Equestrian events
Day 6 = Shooting and Cycling
Day 7 = hockey, cycling and swimming
Day 8 = Cycling
Day 9 & 10 = Sailing
Day 11 = Cycling
Day 12 = boxing.

Why not remain in the same end and take turn scoring?

Notice the blonde woman in red behind the royals. She's the Danish PM, and as you will observe the corners of her mouth are perpetually in twenty minutes past eight position. No doubt her negative vibrations influenced the game....

Our Marie has confirmed that she and her Joachim will bring their two children with them to London:
Billed-Bladet - Børnene med Marie til OL - Det bliver en udfordring


The keen-eyed will have noticed Christian's backpack from when he went onboard Dannebrog. Apart from his name there was also a copy of dad's shark-tattoo.
Thanks Muhler - your comments are always insightful and funny!

Mmmh...interesting comment. Muhler, do you think that was directed to Prince Frederick and Princess Mary, the Queen or her parents?

No, I believe that's part of the very dry and pretty rough humour they use at Berleburg.
It's "west-coast-humour" here in DK.

And you are most welcome, Juliette.

I think I would call it "passive aggressive" humour!! At least is was in good spirit!

I haven't seen any pictures of the Norwegians Royals these days. H&M-M were there at the beginning, though. Have they gone home?

That child has a huge personality. I love it. He's not shy to just be himself (along with his sister).

Hey, it's all good. I'm dreading starting work in a few weeks, because I won't be able to just pop on here and see what's going on as frequently as I do now (though I have a feeling my iPad will be used to do just that during my lunch break ). Enjoy your holiday.

Thanks haha I know right? I start school soon and I should start focusing on that but I doubt I will. I say it every year and every single year I fail miserably. I'm in my lecture hall and I'm on here when I really should be paying attention to the teacher

Catherine and Harry went to Team GB house

Prince Harry at Athletics tonighthttp://www.gettyimages.ca/Search/Search.aspx?contractUrl=2&language=en-US&family=editorial&p=prince+harry&assetType=image
The original photos were from August 7th these are the updated real photos from tonight

Ok so tomorrow the Duchess was supposed to be at the Gold Medal Field Hockey game but I'm assuming she'll attend the Bronze Medal game instead.

I must say that it is fortunate that she loves sports. I wouldn't want to spend all those hours attending games which don't interest me.
Perhaps a game here and there, but the Dutchess is making long hours. :-)

If it is saying Catherine Cambridge it is a different one to the one she was wearing last week which clearlyn said 'HRH Duchess of Cambridge'

See, I can't get away with that anymore, because I'll actually be responsible for a room full of pre-schoolers. My only time to even think about getting on here would be during my lunch break (and I'll be sure to bring my iPad, so that I don't get in trouble for using the work computers for a non-work Internet activity). I loved the pictures and the video you shared. Harry and Kate are such personable and outgoing individuals, that it's a pleasure to watch them chat to different athletes and people in general.

(...)

Christian showing off (or hiding behind) his ID tag is absolutely priceless, then when everyone else is doing it, Isabella marches to the beat of her own drum, so to speak, and doesn't hold hers up. As I said, I love it .

You are welcome.

Don't think so. There haven't been any mentioning of her siblings as far as I know.

Ah I saw them but I kept having problems with this thread so I didn't post them. Thanks for posting Daria. Knowing me I'd go online even with pre-schoolers staring at me I'd be like "ummmm go colour or something Kate has an engagement can't miss this!!" I'm so sure I'd be fired instantly haha
