Royals at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics
 
Are there still any news which royals will attend the Olympic Games in Vancouver?

Ccile 01-06-2010 02:37 PM

On swedish schedule (official website), it's planned that the king, the queen and Carl Philip will attend!

Prince Frederik will be there too as a member of the olympic committee.

Oh that's great to hear! I had been looking for some information to see who would be in attendance. Any news about any of the other households?

Trying to keep this bumped. I've checked the BRF's website and so far it seems no one is going surely that's a first. What about the European Royals any word? I'm so excited seeing as it's being held in my hometown. I enjoyed reading the thread in 2008

This is not confirmed, but I imagine Grand Duke Henri of Luxembourg will be there. He is a member of the Olympic committee and has attended the last few games (both winter and summer). Often times he's accompanied by Grand Duchess Maria Teresa and their children.

I think Prince Frederik will attend doesn't he have some association with the IOC and also Prince Albert of Monaco. I would imagine that Norway would also be represented as I am sure they have quite a few athletes competing in the Winter Olympic events.

It's not on the calendar but there is a gap in Princess Anne's February calendar, she's going to be there as she's a member of the IOC and they hold their meetings before the games start.

ghost_night554 01-15-2010 03:05 AM

Yay great to hear that alot of them will be coming down here due to their IOC commitments

Prince Willem-Alexander will be there. Maybe with his wive and daugthers. The Olympics are: 12-28 February

ghost_night554 01-16-2010 12:47 AM

^Oh is it confirmed he's coming if so yay I do hope he brings Maxima and the girls or atleast for a small period of the Olympics. Is Felipe and Letizia coming? I don't quite remember do they usually attend?

Ccile 01-16-2010 08:41 AM

I guess princess Marie will be there as well as she's now the patron of the danish ski federation!

kristens 01-16-2010 10:39 PM

As HM will be coming to Canada this summer and it is winter, the games will be opened by the Queen's representative, the Governor General.

Crown Prince Frederik will attend on February 9 and 10 and february 16 to 19 the IOC General Asambley, and from February 11 to 16, Mary will join him to attend the Winter Olimpics.

Kronprinsparret støtter de danske atleters deltagelse i vinterlegene og vil bl.a. overvære åbningsceremonien samt forskellige konkurrencer i løbet vinterlegene. Danmark stiller med det største hold aktive idrætsudøvere til vinter OL, siden de to første danskere deltog i vinterlegene i St. Moritz i 1948.
