Well, this is a surprise! It seems that His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark carried the Olympic Flame through Notting Hill in London on July 26, 2012. Now, I must admit that I’m confused as to why he carried the flame. Shouldn’t a British man or woman have the honor of carrying the torch/flame not the crown prince of Denmark? Typically, a person carrying the torch/flame is from the country which is hosting the current Olympic Games.
Anyway, after Crown Prince Frederik passed the flame to the next runner he was asked about his historic moment in the Olympic spotlight (a bit dramatic, I know), “… the atmosphere was nice… it was a good experience!!”
