Royals at the 2008 Beijing Olympics
as most of you will know, this year's summer olympics take place in beijing, from the 8-24 august. i opened a thread in 2004 to see which royals were going to attend the games and post pictures or information, which you can see here:

do we have any news at this stage? :flowers:

The Norwegian court announced (after some prodding from the media) that the King and Queen, as well as the Crown Prince would attend the games.

From Denmark, CP Frederik will attend.

I hope that if Zara Phillips makes the team, which seems very likely that some of the BRF will go. Of course China has several 'issues' which could make that trip dicey politically.

From England at least Princess Anne would come, i am sure. And maybe the Duchess of Cornwall might as well.

I know if Zara makes it to the Olympics that Princess Anne will most definitley be there, and maybe some of her cousins.

William and Henry and Tim who is her Stepfather Peter and Autumn.

Crown Prince Frederik's going, even though there was lots of talk about him not, because its being held in Beijing and there's controversy, etc.

BurberryBrit 02-23-2008 09:14 PM

Princess Nora vuz Liechtenstein is on the IOC so I suspect she and some members of the Liechtenstein princely family will be there, though they will likely go unnoticed. :smile:

Princess Maxima 02-23-2008 09:14 PM

The Prince of Orange and Princess Máxima are going

Odette 02-23-2008 09:27 PM

Most Royals are members of the IOC and will be present for the games in Beijing. King Constantine of the Hellenes and the Princess Royal are both members and they will be present.

RADKER18 02-23-2008 10:33 PM

Prince Albert of Monaco he will most likely attend

Are the Spanish Royals going this year? I remember seeing pictures of all of them-down to little Juan Valentin, at the Olympics in years past. Or was that just because Cristina's husband was on the Spanish handball team?

Isnt Mary attending with Frederik?
Also Princess Haya will be attending since she is the FEI President.

I think royal families will go to the Olympics since most royals are sportsman and they will most likely cheer for their athletes.

She is attending, just not the entire time.

Nothing is said from the royal court but I can guarantee that King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of sweden and mybe the Crown Princess too will travel to beijing.
