Yes, he is, but the President is just a figurehead. Policymaking power actually lies with the Chairman, currently Mr Peter McCormick.

There are actually quite a few photos now where it seemed George was definitely enjoying it but it probably was overwhelming as well. Not least because it's 45,000 people in the stadium.

And there's absolutely no missing the fact that William enjoys this particular job.
George is old enough to understand that he and his family will be a focus of attention at public outings like these, so likely some added pressure there, but I find a lot of younger kids look a little out of sorts at big sporting events like these. I go to various games with my husband once or twice a year - pre COVID, obviously - and it’s a weird environment if you’re not used to it, even as an adult. George seemed to be having a good time for the most part. Not as much fun as William, clearly!

Do the Swedish royals ever show up to support the national team?

Daniel and Estelle went to Nice in 2019 to watch the game between Sweden and Thailand in the Ladies World Championships.

Anyway, it's the background story of the photo of Isabella Monday evening.
It was a part of a selfie by the Instagrammer Anders Hemmingsen (AH from now on). I have no idea who he is.

He explains that he sat in an ordinary row and watched the match with DK versus Russia when he spotted Isabella in the VIP section close by.
Finding her a cool girl with spirit he thought it would be nice to have a photo with her.
So when Isabella's friend passed close to his seat, he presented himself (he normally doesn't post selfies on his profile and asked the friend whether she would ask Isabella for a pose.
Isabella ran down to him and posed. AH thanked her and Isabella went back to her seat.

AH often post photos of the DRF in funny or odd situations and the number of likes reflect their status. Top is QMII, followed by M&F and children, and further down in regards to likes are Joachim and our Marie with children and Benedikte.

AH says he would never ask Frederik for a selfie, he believe that the royals should be left in peace, but in the case of Isabella he made an exception. She's a likable and relatable girl, albeit very special and will no doubt appeal to his younger followers.

- Well, I hope it doesn't become a habit that the royal children are asked for selfies all the time by all sorts of online-profiles who are angling for likes.
Maybe I’m being unfair to this man because I’m not familiar with his history with the DRF, but this doesn’t seem ok to me. He wouldn’t bother the middle aged man for a selfie but has no problem imposing on the attractive teenaged “cool girl with spirit?” Surprise, surprise.

If Isabella and her parents are ok with members of the public occasionally asking to take her picture when she’s at public events that’s one thing. It’s probably overall a good thing for the children to get used to handling these requests - including learning how to politely but firmly decline when they’re not comfortable. But this particular episode doesn’t paint the man in a very favourable light.

I think we have seen two examples in the past couple of weeks of William showing his children the difference between 'formal' and 'informal' events. The event on Father's Day where he started the race with the children was an informal event so they were all dressed appropriately for a fun day out. This event was a formal event and so even though they could enjoy themselves they had to dress the part as well. This event is in the CC while the Father's Day event wasn't.

This is the first generation of young royals to grow up in the era when nearly everyone's got a camera phone on them, and it's going to be something quite difficult for them to handle ... say no, and people are going to be complaining that they're stand-offish and unfriendly, say yes and a) they could be pestered all the time and b) photos which they may not like could go viral. It's a difficult one.

Because all Sweden matches at EURO 2020 were "away games" (Spain, Russia, Scotland).

Actually so far all royals only attended the "home games" (except K Philippe who attended the match between Belgium and Denmark at Copenhagen).

Danish royal attended all three group stage matches which were at Copenhagen (their round of 16 with Wales was at the Netherlands so no royal attendance). The Dutch attended one group stage match which was at Amsterdam (BTW all their group stage matches were at Amsterdam, round of 16 at Russia). K Felipe attended the group stage match with Sweden at Sevilla (similar to the Dutch, all their group stage matches were at Sevilla, round of 16 at Denmark). England is lucky to have all their matches so far at Wembley, London (and I was actually surprised that William only attended two matches so far considering that they were all "home games" at London and he is also the FA president, but well probably he got other things to do).

The only two kingdoms who didn't have any "home games" at EURO 2020 were Sweden and Belgium. As mentioned, K Philippe is the only royal "go outside" and attended the group stage match with Denmark at Copenhagen.

By that, I don't expect any royal attendance next round as all upcoming quarter-finals are "away games" (Spain > Saint Petersburg, Belgiun > Munich, Denmark > Baku, England > Rome, I lowkeyly hope K Philippe will bring his kids to Germany though.)

King Albert and Queen Paola will watch today in Munich the match Belgium-Italy

""Queen Paola will watch the match (Belgium-Italy) together with King Albert. Football for Her Majesty is a party, no matter who wins between Italy and Belgium.""

https://twitter.com/WDehandschutter/...924352/photo/1


"How does Queen Paola view Belgium-Italy? I asked after: “She will watch with King Albert. Football is a celebration for Her Majesty, no matter who wins: Italy or Belgium. They are also celebrating their 62nd wedding anniversary. It will be a festive moment anyway." "

Prince Christian have a problem to watch the match Czech Republic- Denmark:

"The technique failed, but thank goodness for an alternative. Despite the size, it is with excitement that we follow closely (very closely) in tonight's big match… .. and it looks good! ������������������������"


https://www.instagram.com/p/CQ31fsOAJHO/

So far Denmark after the first half wins 2-0

(..)

Prince Joachim with family from Paris happy for the win of Denmark

The Czech Republic have scored a goal so 2-1 but I think Denmark are the superior team tonight.
