Favourite Royal Olympic Moments Part One

Well that was fun, wasn’t it? Now that the Olympic torch has gone out in London, let’s recap some of our favourite Royal Olympic moments from the last two weeks.  And there were tons of them!! We’ll start with the Danish royals simply because we love them around here.

The Danish Royals

The Royal Family of Denmark opted to stay on their yacht during the Games, which they moored on the Thames at the West India Docks. Here’s a shot of the lovely yacht:

And, what the heck, here’s another:

Rewinding back to the torch relay, we can now add Crown Prince Frederick to the list of Royal torchbearers. He ran with the torch through central London when the relay was wrapping up:

Skipping along to the Opening Ceremony, Prince Frederick and Princess Mary attended along with the Queen and Prince Consort. And look, Princess Mary and Princess Charlene are buddies and Mary was most patriotic  in her red and white ensemble:

Mary and Frederick were very enthusiastic cheerers:

And they also said hello to Princess Mette-Marit of Norway during one event:

But my favourite shots by far feature little Prince Christian, who we spoke about at length in our post here. Princess Mary headed back to Denmark for a few days in the middle of the games, and brought Prince Christian and his sister Princess Isabella back to London with her. Here they are skipping onto the Yacht, loving every second of this totally awesome summer holiday:

Later, Prince Christian showed off his credentials:

And then everyone did it:

And, to top it all of,  he did a Usain Bolt impression because this kid rocks:

And, of course, he really got into the cheering, too:

The Dutch Royals

We knew that Princess Maxima and co. were really going to get into things as well – click here if you need a reminder of their past Olympic enthusiasm- and they did not disappoint!

Check out Princess Catharina really getting in there, flapping her orange jacket:

I mean, come on, they were everywhere:

And it was rain or shine. Full marks for commitment, am I right??

On another day, Princess Maxima and Prince Willem-Alexander took their family along to tour the Olympic Village and met team Netherlands sprinter Churandy Martina:

And because I love seeing the royals greeting each other, here they are saying hello to Prince Daniel and Prince Carl of Sweden:

The Swedish Royals

Well, that takes us nicely into the Swedish royal contingent in London. Princess Victoria was planning to attend, but decided to stay back home with little Princess Estelle instead. Prince Daniel and Prince Carl Philippe flew the flag along with the King and Queen.

Love their team Sweden rugby shirts:

Another day, another yellow and blue shirt:

The white shirt and blue blazer look for another day:

And OMG a yellow and blue umbrella. Well done, boys:


More delightful royal moments to come! See you soon…
