That yellow dress is certainly a far cry of that smashing white dress of the day before.

Is it just me, or with that hat does she look like one of the (MUCH thinner&#33 teletubbies!!! I love Martha-Louise's fashion choices most of the time, but this one was a bit too much!

From a Yahoo Group. Don´t know where they got it from.


"Norway's Princess Märtha Louise grabbed an unexpected amount of
attention at the wedding of Spain's Crown Prince Felipe with her
flamboyant choice of festive dress. Crown Princess Mette-Marit also
attracted a number of dissatisfied comments about her relaxed attire
upon arrival in Madrid.

The Spanish seemed shocked by Märtha Louise's gaudy short yellow dress
with red tulips, the colors chosen by her as a tribute to the vivid
tones in Spain's flag.

Readers of newspaper El Mundo overwhelmingly voted the creation the
most tasteless of the event, and the general impression was that the
nation found the princess' splash of color at a conservative Catholic
ceremony vulgar.

Neighboring Sweden also ridiculed Märtha Louise's brave outfit in the
press, calling the Tulip & Tatamo design "hideous" and a "chicken
shock". The creators were happy with all the fuss.

"We have received many compliments and congratulations. Attention is
something you have to expect when you dress up public figures,"
designer Katarina Grasmo said.

"Märtha came to us with a request for a red and yellow dress in
connection with the royal wedding. She is a radiantly beautiful girl
that can risk a lot. We wondered if the dress might be a bit much but
Märtha said that 'it was just fun'. She is tough and untraditional and
when she is satisfied, we are satisfied," Grasmo said.

Grasmo knew that the princess had taken the original to the royal
wedding in Spain, but didn't know at which occasion it would be worn.

According to newspaper Dagbladet, Crown Princess Mette-Marit also came
under fashion fire in Spain for coming down the red carpet upon
arrival dressed in jeans.

Norwegian fashion commentators that spoke to Dagbladet agreed that
this was a faux pas, even though the arrival was not part of any
official program."

I don't know... maybe the dress would've been better had it been red instead of yellow, and the embroidery yellow?

It's an okay dress, but it's not suitable for the occasion.

I think they were extensions. Just before that her hair was the same height it is now.

Märtha relinquishing the HRH

Quick question - has Martha's dropping of the HRH really made any difference? It seemed like she was trying to back away from royal duties a bit when Harald got sick. But now that he is back she still seems to be around alot. Any other reason she dropped the HRH? Also, can Ari be given a title, or order in Norway? It always seems that he is more left out that husbands of other Princesses in Europe.

Princess Märtha did indeed indicate that one of the reasons she dropped the HRH was because she wanted to cut down on her engagements. However, the illness of King Harald proved (at least to me) that she is still needed. He is now back in business, but the Crown Princess is still taking care of her young daughter, which is probably one of the reasons Princess Märtha has quite a few engagements also this month. Personally, I don't think dropping the HRH title made any difference, and it wasn't such a good idea. People still treat her as a Princess, and she is still needed to perform royal engagements.

The Princess will have another tour of reading fairytales in September, and will together with her husband move to New York this autumn. Obviously this means she will not perform many engagements.

The Norwegian constitution clearly states that no citizens can have titles, except those in line for the throne. Thus King Harald could give a title to Maud Angelica, but not to her father.
Regarding Orders - Ari Behn is not likely to receive any Norwegian ones, as he does not do anything to deserve them. His position is the same as Princess Astrid's husband Johan Martin Ferner, and he has not received any Norwegian Order. However it is very likely that Ari will receive orders from foreign countries if he is present during state visits. Especially visiting monarch might give him orders.

Peacock - a set of china designed by Ari Behn

Ari has designed a set of china for Magnor Glassverk. According to himself this is something he has been wanting to do for ten years. He has been working on this for the past two years, after being approached for the company.

http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=171989

To view a video: http://atvs.vg.no/player/index.php?id=8825

The glasses from the collection: http://www.setcommunication.com/magn...l.asp?Koll=169

And a closer look at the china: http://www.setcommunication.com/magn...l.asp?Koll=170

Personally I think the design looks very interesting, but I don't know if it is something I would want to eat off - it looks more like something you keep around for decoration.

Well done Ari Behn, they certainly are a beautiful china setting. I think they would look wonderful in a modern house. The glasses however are something I would deifinitely love to have.

Ari Behn is a designer now:
Never before has the introduction of some new tableware and glasses attracted so much media attention in Norway. Then again, such items have never been designed by the celebrity husband of a Norwegian princess, either....
