Of course they came to support all three Dutch riders but Achtereeke was the least likely to win and Ireen Wüst is the best Olympic athlete from the Netherlands so far and the defending Olympic champion. I am sure the couple is happy with the result: gold, silver and bronze for the Netherlands.

He seems to bring luck to the Dutch skaters. Although they are good enough not to need it

He's also to attend the biathlon races tomorrow and the day after tomorrow.
15km women and 20 km men. If he has to congratulate then it will be a huge surprise.

Queen Silvia has cancelled her trip to the Olympic Games. According to information officer Johan Tegel the queen has other commitments. King Carl Gustaf flew today to South Korea as planned. Tegel said that he had no information about what kind of commitments the queen has.
Silvia ställer in resan till Sydkorea _ Svensk Damtidning

Margareta Thorgren, the director of the press department, said to Expressen:
- The king and the queen have many commitments. It was planned that the Queen would accompany the king, but now there are several other commitments in Sweden that she has to take care of. Therefore she has chosen not to travel to South Korea.
What are the commitments?
- There are many different, official and private. But the queen is sad to not be able to accompany. But due to other commitments, she has chosen not to leave.
When was the decision taken?
- Recently, it was now in the morning. And then, of course, we will tell you and provide correct information.
Princess Madeleine is expected to get her third child in Sweden in March - but the message about Silvia's canceled trip should not be interpreted as Madeleine being close to childbirth.
- It's not for such reasons, but it's about the queen's many work tasks that she needs to do here in Sweden.

King Carl Gustaf has arrived to Pyeongchang and gave the congratulation telegram to Frida Hansdotter, who won gold at women's slalom yesterday. Hansdotter is prince Daniel's second cousin.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BfSwXzRH...-by=kungahuset

King Carl Gustaf was interviewed ahead of the women's relay.
King Carl Gustaf is in place at the ski stadium to cheer for the Swedish team. And the king admits that he has difficulties keeping the nerves in control days like this.
- It will be really exciting, but I'm very nervous. I'm always in front of such competitions, but it's very fun to be here.
Sweden has gained great success during the Olympic Games and the king has followed the medal successes from home.
- It has been very fine. They have really done well. Not just those hoped for, there have been some bonus medals that you had not counted on.
Do the king think we have medal chances today?
- Yes, that's great chance. But as I always say: We are not alone in the track. It will be a tough one.
After each Olympic gold, the King and Queen Silvia has sent a greeting to the Swedish medalist, but the king has also talked with the gold heroes in place in South Korea.
- I usually say that they will have fun. It's easy to say, but it's tough. You have to be able to relax. I'm always impressed with the efforts, because I know what lies behind. Hard job. And you only get the best if you put a lot of time to this, says the king.

Apparently she can't hide her happiness as Liechtenstein got their first medal since 1988.

It's a pity that the Spanish royals didn't plan to present in Pyeongchang as Spain already got two bronzes in this Olympics (in Snowboarding and Figure Skating) and the last time they won a medal in winter game was back in 1992.

- I have great hopes. That's why I'm here. Some medal we should be able to cope with, said king Carl Gustaf to Sportbladet before Saturday's women's cross country relay.
And his hopes are released instantly. Sweden took silver after Charlotte Kalla picked up 26 seconds in the relay and Stina Nilsson finally got up in the spur of Marit Björgen.
After the race, the king went down to the goal area to congratulate the Swedish team.
After a short hug, Charlotte Kalla exclaimed "How fun to see you here!", which made her teammates and the king to laugh.
