King Juan Carlos, Prince Felipe and Infanta Cristina are fond of sailing, they regularly take part in trphies, etc. Infanta Elena likes horse racing (she is the only one in the family, I think), and Inaki is fond of handball (obviously ;)).

71 years old Queen Sonja climbing the Norwegian Mountains - wonderful view

King Harald once said in an interview that he doesn't join his wife during her tours, because he's not fir enough for her. :lol:

I can't believe that she is 71! She is in such good shape, and she looks absolutely fantastic. I am not even half her age, and she makes me feel quite lazy! The people of Norway must be very proud of her.

Marie-Chantal of Greece loves to ski. So does Princess Marie of Denmark. I've also read that Crown Princess Mary of Denmark loves to play golf. She has a membership at a few golf clubs, and is reportedly an avid golfer (or at least she once was).
