Edward gives CWG the thumbs-up!


Prince Edward, who is the vice patron of the Commonwealth Games Federation, had a rather hectic schedule since his arrival here on Saturday as he met Sports Minister MS Gill and Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit before inspecting the venues on Sunday with Organising Committee chairman Suresh Kalmadi in tow.

He visited the Thyagaraj Stadium, Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Games Village and Maj Dhyan Chand National Stadium as well as the headquarters of the Organising Committee and was happy with the progress, the organisers said.

“He showed satisfaction at the infrastructure being developed in Delhi,” the organising committee said in a statement.

The Earl of Wessex is here to attend the CGF General Assembly. The Prince showed interest in understanding the infrastructure development in Delhi and the level of the preparedness of the Organising Committee. He was particularly keen to know details about the Queen’s Baton Relay that will be launched by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace on October 29.
