It's so great to see everybody enjoying themselves. I like seeing the pics of the royals interacting. That is, when I take a break from watching the games!

There is a kind of special energy at the Olympics. It is a mix of a non stop party, new friendships, competitions, new records. People from all over the world getting together to cheer, it is an unbelievable uplifting experience.

I thought that too! I think it's great. They got married just before their first "anniversary" at the Athens Olympics, and now they're at the Olympics in Beijing.

Or maybe this is due to the fact that she has a fear (phobia?) of flying. I remember she mentioned that during the launch of the religious music CD she produced a few months ago.

Thank you Lady Finn.Lovely photos of a loving family. Dora Bakoyiannis next to Q Anne Marie was the mayor of Athens during the 2004 Olympics and did a fantastic job. She looks a bit sad. This photo must have been taken after the results of the game when Spain beat Greece at the basketball game.......

I know I read she was petrified of flying and when she first got married that part of her life was causing her great distress. Then I read she had some sort of therapy and she could fly and she did come to the States.
I did not realise that this fear is still with her. Too bad. Looks like everyone is having a grand time.

Hands down, the best perk of being royal is attending the Olympics!!!!! But it's killing me to know that when I watched it on tv and the camera pans to the Bushes, that there are royals sitting behind them or in front of them that I'd rather see but never will! Fortunately he left today, but I don't think that any royals will make it onto the US broadcasts.

Don't worry they don't make it to european broadcasts either. Princess Anne was present at the eventing in Hong Kong but a no-show on the BBC.
