These two have known each other all their lives and are said to be good mates. Not best friends, but good friends nonetheless.

Mary and Federik even stayed with Willem and Maxima back in 2005 I think it was (possibly 2004) for a hunting weekend.

The same could also be said for the Duke of Brabant who was sitting right infront of both Mary and Frederik during the opening ceremony and yet there are no pictures of them talking. Phillippe didn't turn around. And yet, both he and his wife, the Duchess of Brabant, were guests at Frederik's 40th birthday party.

It's easy to forget that we only see a few seconds captured on film. We don't see what happened before and after that.

No, no. You are reading too much into it. :) I'm sure we all do that sometimes. Yesterday Frederik and W-A were at a luncheon reception for royals with the Chinese Vice President. They looked very pally, chatting happily and laughing together as they walked in. So they have already had a chance for a good catch-up.
There was a video clip on Danish DR website.

I could gather he said something about family and Greece but I can only assume he was happy Spain won and sad the Greeks in the family will not???
He is so much more attractive when he is animated rather than when he looks princely and serious......

Thank you all for anwers. I am glad that all the Royal "next generation" get along well -- easier to talk to each other when they rule their countries and trouble starts in world. Don't have to be so formal and can speak freely to each other.

Thank you so much for these, they're great. Mary and Frederik seem more interested in each other than the basketball

I'll bet it's a very romantic time for Frederik and Mary ... sort of an anniversary. Didn't they meet during the summer games in Sydney eight years ago?
