I hate to say this...but I am going into royal picture withdrawal. We need to see our royals enjoying the games and soon please.

The Orange family looks wonderful in their color. It looks like they are having a wonderful time.

Were the royals not seated in the VIP area with the Governor-General and IOC President? I think that seems a bit silly. I was suprised that the television broadcast did not show the royals at all. Usually, when their respective team enters the staium, you can see the Prince or Princess of X wavinf and holding a flag or something. I remember that that is what happened in Beijing.

No, the royals were not seated in the vice-regal box. I saw the Crown Princely couple of Denmark talking to one another in the crowd on TV yesterday before the opening ceremony began, but it was relatively brief.

This time instead of the royals sitting in the VIP box they brought members of the 4 host nations(these being the first nations) into the VIP box,

And rightly so.

It was my understanding that those seated in the vice-regal box were were elders of the 4 host nations. Is that correct?

The opening ceremony was nothing short of spectacular. A wonderful expression of Canadian hospitality, culture and joie de vivre. A classy high-tech visually stunning performance.

Australian-born artistic director David Atkin oversaw the opening ceremony in Vancouver, just as he did for the 2000 Olympics in Sydney so a job well done to him, yet again.

k.d. lang, who was the only one to have sung live I believe, was the icing on the cake. What a stellar performace. It made my spine tingle.

I really like Sarah McLachlan, though she seemed to be miming like Nelly Furtado and Brian Adam's who forgot his queue. Rather embarrassing I'd have thought, particularly when his voice was beaming out and his mouth wasn't moving.

Loved seeing them. WA gave an interview to NOS.nl, I have no clue what he is saying but it's on their website if anyone wants to see it.

Did you see that King Constantine and Queen Anne-Marie of Greece were sitting next to the Dutch Royal Family?
Quite nice to see so many royals together!

good point ashelen, i also thought she may be the nanny, but wasn't sure about her being the argentinian one! hopefully the media will confirm...

Princess Catharina-Amalia is a big fan of Sven Kramer! She wanted a signature from him.
