Swedish Peder Fredricson got silver at Equestrian Jumping individual final round on Friday. King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia met Fredricson after he had got his medal.
- It was very nervous to watch, but it is wonderful that it went so well. We sat down and crossed our fingers, Queen Silvia said.
King Carl Gustaf agrees with the queen.
- I say the same as the Queen. I think it has been hanging in the air. Peder has been good for many years. It's great that he gets payoff for all the work that has been done. Amazingly fun, the king said.

I wonder if the Princess managed to fit in a curtsey?

Frederik has as a member of the IOC criticized the Brazilian hosts for not handling the check-in of the spectators to the various events well enough.
Even though things improved during the games, it was not good enough.

In too many cases far from all seats at events were used and too many had to wait in line in vain to get in.

All that despite Rio having had expert-help and six years in which to prepare and figure out the best procedure to ensure as many spectators getting as possible. - A live crowd being crucial for the atmosphere.

I can not imagine a Princess in shorts making a curtsey.... But instead of just saying "Hiya!" from her place and waving, she came towards the Queen and the King and did a handshake. That was also a proper one: with eye-contact en a lovely smile. Very neat and very polite, I must say. The King and Queen of Sweden looked pleased.

it was a very nice greeting. Reminded me of young prince Christian shaking the king's hand at the 2012 Olympics.

Frederik yesterday was at the biking event and the Brazil vs Germany soccer game

Not many royals i think but at least one:
UAE at Rio 2016: Sheikh Saeed bin Maktoum, Saif bin Futtais miss shooting cut | The National
Would have to check out the equestrian events, maybe some more royals there?
