Prince Frederik is, like Princess Anne and Prince Albert, a member of the IOC. The other royals were there as supporters and not seated in the IOC loge.

On Saturday, GD Henri attended a 3+ hour meeting of the IOC commission "Olympic Solidarity". There was something about distributing $400 million from a pot of TV money over 4 years: "We help about 100 National Olympic Committees and individual athletes We are also trying to athletes after their careers at. transition to the 'normal life' to help. this is also in Luxembourg a big problem. I think that the athletes have served the country as an ambassador. We have to help them."

His car is accompanied by 6 motorcycles and he admitted the security measures have never been as great as in Rio. In the evening, GD Henri watched a handball match between Qatar and Croatia and handled out medals in swimming (400m Individual Medley). On Sunday, he presented medals in women's racing.

GD Henri's Rio trip lasts until Thursday and he "goes via Frankfurt to Nice and then ten days holiday in the family residence in Carcassonne."

It was the teamfinals in gymnastics last night, Monaco didn't compete (nor France unfortunately)

The IOC members are visiting lots of events, and ofcourse they should, but i think it's "business" for them and not necessarily because they want to follow the entire event or because they want to support their own gymnasts (ofcourse they will cheer them on if they are there)

My remark "busy night" was more because i had been flipping tv-channels between diving and gymnastics back and forth (both were on at the same time) and thought it was fun that everytime i flipped: there was P.Albert (guess you had to be with me on the couch to find it funny, but hey, olympics is exhausting for the avid couch-potato too )

Both these events must have taken place during the course of Monday, because during the evening he was present at the swimming finals. As you mention correctly P Albert presented the medals to the winners in the Mens 100m backstroke. Pity we don't have pictures...

P Albert on The Olympics. Since it's all in French maybe our French posters can summarize for us?

Kongehuset gallery of Crown Prince Frederik watching the handball match between Denmark-Argentina:

OL: Overværelse af håndbold | Kongehuset

**

As you may know, Mary left Rio late Saturday so she could reach home to the children and their first day of school and kindergarten (which was yesterday) after the family's 6 weeks summer vacation. Tomorrow, Mary also starts again with official duties after the family's summer holiday. Frederik will - as Denmark's IOC member - of course stay the rest of the Olympics.

It has been wonderful to see Frederik and Mary together for the Olympics. And their frequent visits to all the Danish athletes. With prince Joachim also having left home, our Frederik must now represent Denmark during the rest of the Olympics. I'm sure he will do it great!

I agree Roskilde it was wonderful to see. Along with official duties on behalf of Denmark, the DRF has been a great support for their athletes.

Today Frederik cheering on the handball team

Those are some nice pictures of Joachim and family. Nikolai seems very sweet with his brothers and sister.

Before leaving Rio, Mary visited the Danish equestrian team. they compete today and the DRF has published these lovely photos of Mary with the team and horses.
