Royals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics

as most of you will know, this year's summer olympics take place in beijing, from the 8-24 august. i opened a thread in 2004 to see which royals were going to attend the games and post pictures or information, which you can see here: http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...cs-3041-5.html

do we have any news at this stage?

The Norwegian court announced (after some prodding from the media) that the King and Queen, as well as the Crown Prince would attend the games.

From Denmark, CP Frederik will attend.

I hope that if Zara Phillips makes the team, which seems very likely that some of the BRF will go. Of course China has several 'issues' which could make that trip dicey politically.

From England at least Princess Anne would come, i am sure. And maybe the Duchess of Cornwall might as well.

Crown Prince Frederik's going, even though there was lots of talk about him not, because its being held in Beijing and there's controversy, etc.

Princess Nora vuz Liechtenstein is on the IOC so I suspect she and some members of the Liechtenstein princely family will be there, though they will likely go unnoticed.

Most Royals are members of the IOC and will be present for the games in Beijing. King Constantine of the Hellenes and the Princess Royal are both members and they will be present.

Are the Spanish Royals going this year? I remember seeing pictures of all of them-down to little Juan Valentin, at the Olympics in years past. Or was that just because Cristina's husband was on the Spanish handball team?

I think royal families will go to the Olympics since most royals are sportsman and they will most likely cheer for their athletes.
