King Carl Gustaf visited the Olympic Village today and had lunch with Swedish Olympic Committee. After the lunch the king got tour at the village and visited the Sweden House (Sverigehuset). The king got a team book and a special pin from the Swedish Olympic Committee worn by everyone in the squad. In the Sweden House were athletes from canoeing and wrestling, but also mountain bikers and representatives of athletics were moving around on the terrace and livingroom when the king suddenly appeared.

Thank you for the links, everyone. I'm not patient enough to watch the television coverage to do my royal watching.

It was nice to hear Maxima speaking, I had never heard her voice before. As for her huge earrings, I've seen pictures of her in outfits that made my eyes hurt! But she's a very accomplished woman, and a good representative for her country, IMO.

Before the Olympics started, Frederik had given an interview regarding the Olympics and Danish athletes. He said that one of the goals was for Denmark to surpass the 9 medals won in London, the goal was 10. Denmark now has 12, most medals since 1948. Frederik after the badminton game today
Kronprinsen er imponeret: Danske sportsfolk skubber til taget i Rio

""They have pushed to the roof. We are all immensely proud. "
"I can also hear from friends and family at home in Denmark. They are quite happy that we get medals - even from events that we do not have expected, "said the crown prince.

Its great that he still has a chance to hand out medals as a former and now honorary member of the IOC
http://media.gettyimages.com/photos/...re-id591903730

"King Carl Gustaf little chat with reporters. Of course it is the eve of the match between Sweden and Germany revealed that football is one of his favorite sports, and he really wants to win the Swedish girls. King also shared that in spite of the fact that not all Swedish athletes equally lucky at this Olympics, it is still incredibly proud of them."

Today at Lagoda canoe stadium the King and Queen met the Swedish canoeists Karin Johansson, Sofia Paldanius, and Linnea Stensils.

And the king and queen were seen at the Equestrian Jumping individual final round A today. Queen Silvia with her "Estelle" phone. The king and queen were accompanied by Hans Vestberg, the Chairman of the Swedish Olympic Committee. He has been with the royal couple in many events.

Queen Silvia had work events with World Childhood Foundation Brazil on Tuesday and Wednesday, that is why king Carl Gustaf was seen at the Olympic games alone.

OMGosh!! That Estelle phone is too cute! What a proud Grandmother! Maybe if Leonore could sit still for a minute, she could get one made with all 5 grandchildren.
