Seems that Prince Sebastien of Luxemburg has got a girlfriend since I don´t believe this girl on the photo is Princess Alexandra! She looks quite similar but IMO Princess Alexandra is less pretty....

This history is very funny. Samuel Sanchez has won today the golden medal in cycling, the first medal for Spain. The Princes have taken part in the honoring that they have offered him in the House of Spain. The Princess and Samuel were born in the same city, and conversing there have discovered that have a distant kinship and that the grandmother of the cyclist knows the grandmother of the Princess. The chances of the life.

As far as I can see, the girl next to him is Princess Alexandra herself. And she is a beauty!

She is indeed! Was that a celebration held by the Dutch for their medal winner?
(Thats my best guess, but have never heard of that sort of thing)

From what little I saw, it looked like the chairs were not too comfortable and it was very hot. I did not see any of the royals, but Bush took his jacket off and looked like he was leaning sideways, catching glimpses of his watch. The only one who had sweat running down his forehead but kept his jacket on was Sarkozy.........
BTW I liked the French team's uniform. Very chic.

It said it was a hommage to the bronze medal Dutch winner in judo at the Holland House.

Does anyone keep score of medals so far?? Can we start a thread?

Thanks Odette.

There is a medal table here, but you should be able to click the words "Medal Table" To see it better, but its not working for me. Anyway, it provides you with an overview Odette.

I also found this one @ Wiki Odette, now you have a choice

Thanks Marmi. Spain is having one great year in Athletics in 2008.
I will keep an eye on the US Basketball team since they are all NBA highly paid professionals....

W-A and Maxima seem so fun! They'd definitely be on the list for my imaginary perfect royal dinner party.
