Monaco prince Albert without Charlene too

King Wilhem Alexander , Grand duc were present only for the IOC session and will leave Rio to morrow or next monday

The swedish royal couple will come to Rio,
Haakon will come without Mett Marit next week.

I will not critic that there are not a lot royals , myself is not interested by these olympic games.
It is summer in Europa, the dates of the olympic games are in middle of the holidays , there are no security and there are sanitory problems as the Virus Zika, some people are saying there are no mostikos because it is winter , in Rio, it is still warm and the moskitos are here . For me there is a danger and I hope that all the persons who are coming to Rio will be well after these olympic games.

It always seems the same in regards to the royals at the Parade, some seem to be in the area for foreign representatives and some in the IOC area making it harder for the cameras to get pictures of the right person in the right place in the small time each country has before the next arrives.

Thanks T100! ..... Thought he had knocked some one on the head with it or something! Anne looked in total form!

it's a bit disappointing to see the very few royals that attended this year's olympics. of course, predictable given how far rio is from europe (specially as london was so close and it is our latest olympic memory, so most royals were present)... but still low attendance this time. if memory doesn't fail, even beijing had better royal representation.

let's keep fingers crossed for japan in 2020, which is equally far away from europe!

are there no pics of joachim and marie in the opening ceremony?

GD Henri was actually shown when the Luxembourg team came in.

Were they watching the GB x Belgium men's hockey game ? Belgium actually won it 4-1, I think.

Thanks for the photos Eya and Roskilde, nice seeing the royals visiting the Olympic villages and athletes.
Always nice for Frederik and Mary to visit the Australian team too .

For me, this is one of the cutest photos, Mary with the toy kangaroo and Frederik teasing her

lovely that Mary in a short time has visited many of the Danish athletes, and now with the IOC meetings out of the way, we'll see Frederik attend many of the games.

Nice seeing all the royals

Belgian royals: they'll be celebrating today, because Greg van Avermaet won the cycling roadrace (men), and it's not everyday that Belgium wins a gold medal, so congrats to him

GD Henri isn't leaving that soon. Luxarazzi reports Prince Sebastien will join him on the August 9th. I assume father and son will spend a few days together at least.

shame she has too leave so soon, but the school run calls. It was great that she and Frederik visited so many athletes, and completed some official business.

A BB video of Joachim, our Marie and children congratulating the Danish cyclist Jacob Fuglsang, on his silver medal: VIDEO: Prinsesse Marie og prins Joachim tog børnene med til Fuglsangs OL-sølvfest | BILLED-BLADET

He says in the video that a delighted Frederik called him to congratulate him.

In another BB article it was reported that Frederik did a couple of dance steps when he heard Jacob Fuglsang got his medal.

Rio will be the olympic games for the kings and princes, apart the royal belgium couple who is present and the next arriving of the swedish couple, we will not see a lot of royal wifes, I hope quenn Maxima and her daughters will join the Wilhem Alexander. in the next days.

to see only the princes and kings attending the matchs , it will become quickly boring for the royal watchers, happily there will be the olympic games. but for me the sport is not my cup of tea. it is a pity.!

Today the King and the Premier go back to the Netherlands, so no Dutch royals anymore in Rio. When Willem-Alexander still was the Prince of Orange, he also was a member of the IOC, like Prince Albert of Monaco, Princess Anne of Great-Britain and Prince Frederik of Denmark. When Willem-Alexander became King, he resigned the membership of the IOC.
