Everyone's Mary will be cheering on the Danes and the Australians

These Olympics sound like a disaster, though.
The pollution and filthy conditions are sure to cast a pall over everything.
I feel so sorry for the athletes who train so hard to compete, and then have to deal with something like this.

That The Olympics is very special for Frederik and Mary is clear, and they have attended all of them together since they met at The Olympics in Sydney 2000. BB have collected 35 lovely moments of F&M to the Games:

Grown ups made conscious decisions to participate. Thus, the individuals in question should be morally and physically ready to deal with adversities. No one was ordered to participate. Most of athletes do it for vanity and bigger contracts/endorsements.

On a different note ... Whining and complaining are the national sport of enlightened westerns.

I don't think it is whining and complaining to expect basic sanitation facilities.

I agree. If having the expectations of amenities that are above substandard levels is whining, I'd like some cheese with mine.

Young people that have spent years training to represent their country should have faith that ppl putting on the event are providing a safe games experience. Don't put your hand up to have them if you can't pull it off
Nothing to do with whining westerners

That's exactly why Frederik and Mary are so hugely popular. Tjey are the people's Crown Prince Couple. And their support for the Danes are so real. Look at the pictures! These visit here is not of duty, but an obvious joy. The genuine smiles and joy is not to be mistaken.

Danish svimmer Lotte Friis: "Another Royal visit today. This time not only got the pleasure of H.R.H crown princess Mary but also Denmarks future king H.R.H crown prince Frederik. Such amazing and friendly people!"

Neither Princess Anne nor King Willem-Alexander seem to be present at the Maracană Stadium for the opening ceremony. I wonder why.

I am not aware of any athlete who doesn't have access to basic sanitation facilities. In fact, the olympic village facilities in Rio are far more luxurious than in previous editions of the games. A few plumbing problems in a minority of apartments should not be confused with lack of sanitation.

Goodness, the plumbing and electrical problems in a few apartments were solved within hours, yet people are accusing us of lacking basic sanitation. Really? I wonder if it's just ignorance or pure bad faith.

I'm yet to see a major international event such as the Olympic Games that went without a few problems.

Carlos Arthur Nuzman, President of the Brazilian Olympic Committee, now speaking, is married to journalist Marcia Peltier, whose sister, Princess Dona Maritza of Orleans-Braganza, is married to Prince Dom Alberto of Orleans-Braganza, younger brother of Prince Dom Luiz, Head of the Imperial House of Brazil.

You're welcome!

---------------------------------------------------

As far as I know, the only members of the Orleans-Braganza family who attended the opening ceremony (as private citizens, of course) was Princess Dona Maria Elisabeth and her husband, Dr. Pablo Trindade de Souza. She's a niece of the Head of the Imperial House of Brazil.

Prince Dom Rafael of Brazil, the fourth in the line of succession to the defunct throne, said in a recent interview that he plans to attend some of the competitions.

To our Brazilian posters, who is this athlete De lLima, who lit the cauldron? We don't know much about him? We expected the great Pele to play a role in lighting the Olympic flame...But a wonderful ceremony! Well done to all Brazilians involved...
