King Constantine and his family are expected there in full force. Perhaps minus Marie Chantal because of her pregnancy, although she will still be okay to travel if she wants to at the time, not so late in her pregnancy that it would be unsafe. Although wouldn't it be something else if Marie Chantal delivered her fourth child in Greece?! King Constantine, like Willem of the Netherlands are both members of the IOC, so no surprise to see them each there.

Inaki of Spain, husband of Infanta Cristina, is also now affiliated with the Olympic organization in Spain. But even if he wasn't, he'd probably go anyway to cheer on his former medalist team mates.

Albert of Monaco, a former Olympic athlete himself, will no doubt be there.

From Sweden, the King and Queen usually go. Perhaps Carl Phillip too this year because he carried the torch.

Hopefully Haakon of Norway will go too.

Members of the IOC are almost always there so royals like Prince Willem-Alexander, HRH The Princess Royal, Prince Albert of Monaco, and Princess Nora of Liechtenstein are just about guaranteed.

So far we've heard..

-Prince Willem-Alexander (himself a member of the IOC)will be in Athens for the first week without Maxima.

-Crown Prince Haakon Athens for the first 4 days without Crown Princess Mette-Marit.

-Prince Joachim of Denmark will attend for the first few days without Princess Alexandra.

-Princess Benedikte of Denmark for the a few days

-Queen Margrethe, Prince Henrik, Crown Prince Frederik, and Crown Princess Mary will attend for the final week.

I think that the wifes of the princes wan´t to be home to take care of ther children.
I can understand why because 2 of them are under the age of 1 and prince Nikolai and prince Felix has just been seperatede from ther mum becaus she had to take the trip to HongKong with the femal singers from Denmarks Radio couier.

Princess Alexandra has told in a couple of interviews, that her and Joachim always makes arrangements, so that they aren&#39;t away from home at the same time.

I wonder how, Queen Margrethe, CP Frederik and P Joachim will "split" the trip between them. One of them always has to stay in Denmark to be the regent. An alternative is, if Princess Benedikte goes to Denmark. She is also able to serve as regent.

I think Princess Alexandra may not be a fan of such sporting activities. I am sure if she and Prince Joachim really want to be there, they could arrange to bring their nannies with them. :flower:

I believe this is the case. She is going on the days when there will be a regent, either the Queen,CP Frederik or Prince Joachim. :flower:

No, I&#39;m sure she is a fan of sporting events. She went to OL in Atlanta in 1996 accompanying both CP Frederik and P Joachim. At the "famous" OL in Sydney in 2000 CP Frederik and P Joachim went alone. By that time, P Nicolai was just a year old.

Friends of the Princess has told, that she is a big fan of football (soccer). For instance she went to Portugal during the European championship.

I&#39;ve read that King Albert and Queen Paola will attend the Olympic Games for the opening ceremony, and that Crown Prince Philippe and Crown Princess Mathilde will attend the Olympic Games on the 25th.

According to Norwegian newspaper VG, Märtha Louise will attend the paraolympics (for disabled) for 4 days, I think she does that almost every time, atleast she went to the last two winter paraolympics.
