King Carl XVI Gustaf And Queen Silvia Of Sweden Cheer Olympic Team (PHOTO)

Royals from a number of countries have showed up at the Olympics in London--but few as vociferous as King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden. Pictured here, King Carl cheers on his country's handball team against rival Denmark, with, shall we say, plenty of enthusiasm. Just look at those cheery stripes.

From the looks of the photo, earmuffs down in front does not appear to be enjoying the competition quite as much as the Swedish king. Sitting beside the King, his wife, Queen Silvia, says it all when she shoots an admonishing look toward the stick-in-the mud sitting a row below the royal couple.

You should probably invest in some ear plugs, ma'am.
