I hear it's far from ideal,or better hell,for the photographers to do their work properly at all events as there never was a worst organisation in any previous Olympics!Oh dear...and those people know what they talk about,they've seen 'm all,been there...

King Willem-Alexander and Queen Màxima were present when Sanne Wevers won gold on balance beam and congratulated her afterwards. Perhaps we'll get pictures

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia were following the Dressage Individual Grand Prix Freestyle with swedish dressage athlete Therese Nilshagen.
Queen Silvia said that they are very happy to be there, of course. The king said about dressage that it was decent. Everyone can not win a medal, but they all do the best they can. The king said that they are going to follow a lot of competitions. After dressare they went to watch Johan Eurén in wrestling, he lost. The king said that it could have been better, Eurén has won against this guy before.
Then the royal couple went on to handball arena. And although they weren't in Rio last week, they had followed Sarah Sjöström win Olympic gold in the 100 meters butterfly.

A pity that the Dutch king and queen are forced to spend time in the vicinity of Camiel Eurlings (Dutch IOC member), former 'golden boy' of the Christian Democratic party. (the man grinning above Pss Amalia on the photos).

He is currently under investigation for assaulting his ex girlfriend after she asked if he was gay -rumours that have been going around in The Hague for more than a decade. In the mean time doubts have arisen about the reliability of the ex, as she is described as a 'vindictive golddigger' in some parts of the press. Eurlings is now counter-sueing her for defamation and blackmail. He supposedly confessed to the police that he got violent during an argument.

In the past Eurlings assisted the dark forces in his party to form a coalition with the facist party. He left politics in 2012 as he claimed to want to 'start a family', after which he dumped his girlfriend and in quick succession dated several models. He became CEO of KLM -rather fishy since he used to be the minister for transportation. He was fired from this job as he was too busy going to red-carpet events, partying and lousy at his job.

As an IOC member he has not shown his face in public for months, but now he is grinning close to the RF. Why that man still dares to show his face in public is a mystery.

During the opening ceremony it was noted that Eurlings did *not* sit next to the king and the prime minister, as was announced. Apparently some newspapers have photoshopped him out of other photographs of the Olympics as much of the country gets nauseous by just looking at him. Ironically it was the king himself who pressured Eurlings to succeed him as a member of the IOC, but that was before the various scandals.

I noticed the id cards for Wiliem-Alexander and Family are listed as IOC. I believe WA is an honorary member, after his years in the IOC


a few more of Frederik throughout the games, and also at official functions for Denmark

It looks like Maxima was disappointed with the Dutch goal before she cheered it. I bet that, deep inside, she was rooting for Argentina.

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia saw swedish ladies win Brazil at the football semifinal after penalty shots. The swedish ladies are at the final.

maxima has stated several times that she 'is dutch'. i think she was supporting netherlands, but i am sure she probably thought she would be happy whoever won. mary of denmark, in a similar situation to maxima, stated it nicely when she was asked if she was supporting the aussies: she said 'of course, so long as they are not competing against a dane'. i am sure both of them celebrate the wins of both of their countries, but if they had to choose... they are dutch and danish respectively.

Daily Mail on Frederik out and about in Rio, of course with a little hint that he might, possibly, conceivably, perhaps doing mischief...

Australia won silver in the race that Frederik handed out the medals, the pair gave an interview and were pleased that an honorary Australian presented the medals. They asked Frederik where Mary was and he said at home looking after the kids.

Jo Griggs is lovely, before her TV career she was a swimmer and won bronze at the Commonwealth Games.
