Dutch Royals at the Torino Winter Olympics; February 2006

the opening ceremony is tonight, so I expect the PoO in the audience, with his 'eternal' companion, Erica Terpstra (chairman of the dutch sport federation)

It was a really good race though. The two Dutchmen (Sven Kramer and Bob de Jong) were amazing. I did get goosebumps to see Enrico Fabris of Italy really give that last push to take the bronze.

Apparently when he was asked if he wanted to be a member of the IOC for the next 8 years, the prince replied that that was still 'the big question'.

Apparently the PoO made a 'deal' with the gouverment that he will quit all his other functions (like a member of the IOC) as soon as he becomes king, so.... if we add this to the restorations of Castle Drakensteyn and Palace op de Dam, one hinks that within 8 years the Queen will abdicate.
