Except for Kate, William and Harry I don't think I saw any royals present - if it hadn't been for this thread I wouldn't have been aware that any other British royals were there let alone those from other countries.

Well on the BBC, Anne, Tim, Edward and Sophie got a lot of coverage Anne especially. Depending on the event you saw foreign royals.

I wonder why William isn't with Kate and Harry as he is an Ambassador . I know he has been back on duty this last week but I would have thought he would have been allowed to attend such an important occasion - I think my employers would have given me time off

He doesn't get time off when he wants. He's at work and was never scheduled to attend the closing ceremony.

Apart from Harry and Kate, other royals were present as well, including Princess Anne and Tim Lawrence, and Prince Albert of Monaco.

Well but she could've been, couldn't she? Granted, she's QMII's cousin, but she's still twelfth in the line of succession to the throne and could therefore act as a regent (or rigsforstander), that is just my impression it, I could be totally wrong but it sounds kind of weird if she couldn't.

Being a member of the IOC ensures that you always get a good seat at the big and popular events.

King of the Closing Ceremony: Prince Harry is joined by Kate as he takes centre stage as the top Royal
Quote:
Prince Harry was launched into a new leading role in the royal family last night when he took centre stage at the Olympic closing ceremony. In his most important solo Royal engagement yet, the third in line to the throne was selected as the figurehead for the spectacular farewell to the Games, which the Queen opened two weeks ago. The high-profile task of celebrating Britain’s glory at London 2012 fell to the 27-year-old prince, sitting alongside the Duchess of Cambridge, after a succession of prominent appearances in the crowd at many of the history-making events of the competition.
A lovely picture of Harry and Kate from the article.

Oh, definitely. I'm sure Kate is thinking she chose the wrong brother.

Personally, I think it would be much more dignified if they got into a slap fight in a pub. This continued show of family unity must not be tolerated.

The cameras got shots of them dancing ... at the same time... next to each other - Im sure there is the makings of a scandal there somewhere. Can you imagine... Phillip laughing and sitting next to Margaret, Diana with Andrew, Sophie with Charles. This just isnt done - the fate of the monarchy hangs in the balance. Someone stop those two crazy kids from spending time together and enjoying themselves.

From the pictures I really can't seen them behind Catherine. I'm sure they were at the ceremony, though.
