Slightly Belated IOC News from Kuala Lumpur

So it turns out Grand Duke Henri wasn't in Malaysia for the 2022 host city vote back on July 31st. However, he was reelected as an IOC member, on August 3rd, during the final day of the 128th Session. For what it's worth, Henri's non-attendance put him in fairly good company this year, as more than 10 percent of voting members were either not present or not eligible to vote (due to being from one of the bidding cities).

It is likely, on the other hand, that Princess Nora was in attendance, as there is no mention of her absence from the events.

A little more news about the session here and here.
