While there, they will visit with Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik. CNN Political Ticker: All politics, all the time Blog Archive - Obama to make personal pitch for Olympics « - Blogs from CNN.com

Before the event starts, I would just like to remind everyone that this thread is for news and photos on royals/royal attended events at the IOC Session.

Information regarding Presidential attendance (Obama, da Silva, etc) and what they are doing in Copenhagen should be posted in the Olympic Games 2016 - It's decision time in Copenhagen, October 2nd thread in the 'In The News' forum. Posts relating specifically to a President/public figure with no royal mention will be moved if they are posted here.

Please also post preferences on candidate cities in that thread too.

Thank you :flowers:

RoyalistRiley 09-30-2009 10:19 PM

While the royals are staying are they treated by Denmark as if they are on a State Visit or private business?

Many royals are attending this event who are part of the IOC and repreenting their country, how come they arent invited? I know that the Bahraini delegation are already in Denmark (members of the ruiling family)

Madame Royale 10-01-2009 05:19 AM

Ugh...Oprah's attending. I'm sure Ms. Winfrey will be loving that! Perhaps no one told her Her Royal Majesty Queen Raaniaaaa isn't present...:biggrin:

I certainly hope we get to see alot of photo's over the next week. Notably where royals are concerned, naturally. And the Obama's...I quite like them.

Ccile 10-01-2009 05:59 AM

Michelle....I usually love your clothes but what are you wearing?!

Mary looks great as always. Does she ever have a bad clothes day? No need to answer, I know she does.

I am sorry, I love Queen Margethe...but if I see that suit one more time.

Henrik and Frederick look good.

Sorry to digress into fashion. It looks like this was a nice visit. I wish I understood Danish!
