The restaurant on Little Mtn is excellent & has hosted many royals. :smile:

How wonderful for royals to go and support their country, not to mention the VIP treatment they will receive while there. Lucky them!!;)

What a thrill it must have been for the Danish athletes to have their future king intimately involved with them at their celebrations. They all look like they're having a blast!!:clap: Fred's going to be such a good king!

Will Felipe and Letizia attend the Olympics? They attended the Turin Games before, right?

I do not think it, in Spain the winter sports are not very important, the Spanish team is small and there are few possibilities of medal. To Turin only they were one day to greet the sportsmen and sportswoman and to see a skier that was competing for medal.

The Spanish Royal Family goes to the Olympic Games in summer during their vacations and they do not consider it to be an official act. So it would be difficult enough that they could justify an official trip to Canada only to be present at the Olympic Games, that for the country are less important and without being members of the Spanish or International Olympic Committee.

Always they are represented by the Infanta Pilar who is a member of honor of the Olympic International Committee.

When Australia had the Olympics many of the Royals stayed in the same hotel probably easier to secure one hotel rather than many), will the Royals be staying together in Canada?
What about special parties,receptions,etc.................hope we get some pictures of the Royals together

Are there any Danish-speaking people around who could enlighten us as to what he's saying? I heard something about curling? And the caption said something about the interviewer asking him about coming down a slope with him?
