He turned to them and said 'good run' and happened to notice that the two people he was addressing were infact Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary who themselves went up to dine after a morning ski.

He went on to say that he then had to control his need to stare, and at some point asked if they would consider appearing on the live telecast at the next sports break, to which both said 'thank you', but they were happy to maintain their relative anonymity during their olympic visit (which is entirely understandable and it was a rather intrusive of him to ask in the first place, though harmless I'm sure it was). He said they were perfectly nice and all smiles, enjoyed their breakfast and then continued on with their skiing.

One of the things I like about Frederik and Mary, is their innate ability to at all times remain stately (though genial) in public and not adhere to celebrity culture. Which is in itself no surprise; they aren't celebrities.
thanks for the anecdote mme royale. however, i don't understand. i thought they were there to support the danish team. did the anecdote then happen just before they went to see the games?

Princess Amalia and Princess Alexia have holiday next week. Princess Alexia isn't jet school age. :) And Princess Amalia is with permission free of school this week. :)

I'm sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand it.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean, Carlota. Clearly they have been in Vancouver to support the Danish team, and have, but why would that then mean that they are unable to enjoy their own private time?

Naturally Danish media knew they were there, but as far as I've seen, have largely been mindfull of their right to privacy aswell. The same would be said for the Dutch, Norwegian and British royals. Not every moment of their attendance is to represent their respective Kingdoms. The paps are doing their jobs, which explains the photo's now in circulation.

Being approached by a cheeky Australian reporter when dining for breakfast, asking if they'd like to be a part of the 'Sunrise experience' (my words, not his) deserved the response that was given, imo :)

The captions are wrong.
It wasn't the 3000m, but the 500m race. They showed WA and Maxima in the audience.
They saw Lee Sang-Hwa from South Corea winning the race right before Jenny Wolf from Germany and Wang Beixing from China.

She still has the same picture on her pass as she did in 2004.
Haakon does look wonderful in glasses.

I don't understand the need for snowpants. It's not that cold up there, and they're certainly not out there rolling around in it.

What is the protocol regarding approaching a royal when they are out in the general public like Prince Haakon was the other day?
Side note... I think he is sooo gorgeous

Thank you very much Fanavmaxima.

Will one of the Swedish Royals travel to Canada?
