It's really good to see such great press focus on the Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia. They really enjoyed watching the games, and are really enthusiasm. Anyone has seen pictures of Princess Anne at the Opening Ceremony?So hard to find her!

We didn't get to see any of the royals in attendance on the US broadcast on NBC. They showed President & Mrs. Bush several times (looking bored! They even caught both of them looking at their watches!). I don't think there was even a mention of any royals aside from Princess Grace/Grace Kelly.

No, they didn't. Only their Majesties attended.
Haakon is scheduled to attend some events.
Mette-Marit won't travel to China at all (maybe it's a kind of boykott. I don't know. But it's okay if she doesn't want to attend, IMO).
The Royal couple is going to attend some sports events.

Felipe and Letizia have sure been to a lot of events! They must be thoroughly enjoying themselves.

I'm watching the beach volleyball on television right now, but, unfortunately, can't see W-A and Maxima.

So far:

Belgium: Prince Phillipe (didnt stand or wave when shown on tv)
Denmark: Prince Frederick and Princess Mary (shown standing but not waving, Fred was playing with his phone)
Spain: Prince Felipe and Princess Leitzia (shown standing and waving)
Luxemburg: Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa (standing and waving, i think)
Norway: King Harald and Queen Sonja (sitting not clapping)
Jordan : nothing
Great Britain: Princess Royal (standing waving)
Netherlands: Prince W-A and Princess Maxima (standing and waving orange scarfs)
Sweden: nothing (but i might have missed it looking at my laptop when they first came out..)
Monaco: Prince Albert (and girlfriend?) standing and waving


p.s is anyone else wondering why they keep playing scotish bagpipes on repeat...lol...
Belgium: Philippe wasn't very interest about that what happen
when they show him on TV (seconds after Belgium team enter to stadium)
Luxembourg: standing and waving very energy

The comentator on Polish Eurosport said that they (organizers) want music from all 5 continents (5 olympic circles) or something like that.

Maybe it help: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Su...ening_Ceremony

I think all of the CP's attending this event is doing pritty much like the danish CP couple. It is a visit to China which is rather un"official" - but along with having a great time supporting there teames - they also are promoting the interests of their respektive countries, and in accordiance with that they have an unofficial programe which also is in the interrest of China.
