King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden.

I attach some pictures with the King and Queen during the Olympic Games in Sydney, here with Olympic wrestling champion Mikael Ljungberg (may he rest in peace) and Olympic tabletennis/ping-ping Silver Medalist Jan Ove Waldner:

Thanks GrandDuchess for the above pictures of the Swedish royals in Sydney. Funny picture to see Queen Silvia doing the wave! :p

Inaki Urdangarin, husband of Infanta Cristina participated in the games, winning a bronze (I think) medal for handball. Cristina was heavily pregnant at the time with their second son Pablo.

There are many pictures of Infanta Cristina with her son Juanito, Queen Sofia, Prince Felipe, Princess Alexia and Queen Anne Marie watching Inaki's games.

Some photos are soooo cute, specially the third one!! :)

Pink Tulip 11-27-2005 12:19 AM

Didn't Princess Martha Louise compete in horse trials or something?

This may be going a bit off topic but I read in a magazine (so it may not be true) that when Frederick and Mary met at the Slip Inn, Martha Louise and Prince Nikolaos of Greece were there.

Yes, that is true. And I belive there was another crown prince there aswell. I think I read that prince Frederik said "I wasn´t the only crownprince there that night"... who might that be? prince Pavlos? Or Felipe?

Australian 11-27-2005 07:08 AM

It was Crown Prince Filipe. Im sure it was, i remember that he was with Frederik in Sydney.

Jackswife 11-27-2005 08:03 AM

I'm trying to recollect :confused: but wasn't Princess Anne and the Duke of Kent there as well? Usually there are British royals present since several of them have connections to sports and/or athletic associations, but for the life of me I can't remember exactly who the UK reprentatives were.:o

Australian 11-27-2005 08:45 AM

i think the British representatives was Prince Edward and maybe Sophie, but i am positive that Edward was there. Im not sure if Sophie accompanied him though
