Royal love: These couples met at the Olympics

These royal love stories, which began at the Olympics, prove that the world’s greatest sporting event is the perfect place to get to know each other.

Munich – Many dream of a fairytale wedding with a prince or princess, but where do you get to know noble singles? Many royals are rarely to be found in the supermarket next door, their diaries include galas, festive dinners – and the Olympic Games. The aristocracy likes to travel around the world for sporting competitions, and the Olympic trip is not infrequently the beginning of a relationship and is crowned by love success *.

The first meeting of King Carl XVI. Gustaf (75) and Queen Silvia (77) of Sweden was a few years ago. In the summer of 1972, the then Crown Prince traveled to Munich for the Summer Olympics, where he met 29-year-old Silvia Sommerlath. The Heidelberg woman worked as a hostess and looked after high-ranking guests, including her future husband.

Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark (53) and Crown Princess Mary (48) might never have met without the Olympics. During the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, the heir to the throne visited the “Sip Inn” bar, where he met his dream wife. For Frederik it was love at first sight, as he revealed years later in a biography.

Iñaki Urdangarín (53) was not only able to get hold of a bronze medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics, the then captain of the Spanish handball team was also far away from the field. In Atlanta he made the acquaintance of Infanta Cristina of Spain (56) and apparently left a lasting impression. The two married on October 4, 1997 in Barcelona and had four children. * is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
