None are from the reigning houses AFAIK, but Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a member of the non-reigning House of Hohenlohe, is skiing for Mexico. I think the royals tend to compete more in the Summer Olympics.

Rather an unfortunate picture of Albert - don' t think he would still fit in a bobsleigh.

Just saw Willem-Alexander and Máxima watching men's 5000 m speed skating. Netherlands won the three medals - gold, silver and bronze in the same competition! Obviously the Brazilian narrator didn't know who WA and Máxima were

Kramer was amazing! He was so much faster than his rivals and another gold in the 10000 m is expected.
Nice video! WA and Máxima always seem so cheerful and happy on these sports events. Love to see them on these occasions.

Why for Mexico? Does he live here and has Mexican citizenship?

Von Hohenlohe was born in Mexico and his grandmother is half-mexican. One must have the citizenship to be able to represent a country at the Olympics.
Who is Hubertus von Hohenlohe, and Why Is He Skiing for Mexico - TIME
