Nice to see Felipe with his uncle and aunt. They must have had a little friendly rivalry at the match between Spain and Greece.
Felipe and Letizia yesterday at the basketball match. They lived with the game every minute.

Lovely to see the interaction between Crown Princess Mary and Princess Maxima. We never usually see much of these two, together, so it's nice to seem them chattting and sharing a laugh...

Beautiful photos. Thanks for posting. Keep them coming. So interesting to see them how they interact on a personal level.

Oh Marge. The couple behind them is Mitt Romney and his wife. (He ran for the US Republican presidential nominee's post and was instrumental in the planning of the Olympics in Utah)

Frederick looks very nice. It must be the heat that makes his suit look wrinkled. Perhaps he has a cell phone attached to his belt and bulges on the side, BUT why is he wearing a black belt with a khaki suit??

Is it just me -- but, Maxima and Mary seem to enjoy talking and laughing with each other and W-A smiled and kissed Mary on the cheek but Fred and W-A didn't seem all that glad to be in each other's company. Is there a reason for this or am I just seeing these pictures wrong. Normally the men would be in a conversation while the wives talked. These two stayed a good distance away from each other. Is it just that they have nothing in common?
