And I guess that sunburn thing from a few years back, makes her cautious with the sun.

From Hello on 17th of May

http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty...rwegianroyals/

Just one comment to this article;
It says: "The bunad, as it is known, is based on regional folk apparel and first came into existence about 100 years ago." That isn't entirely correct. Most of the costumes that makes up the bunad, has it's roots in the clothes styles from the 1600s to the early 1800s. And it was everymans "copies" of rich people's clothes. Hundred years ago Hulda Garborg (wife of writer Arne Garborg) did a formidable work in catalogueing the bunads from different places. One could say she revived the bunad, and made it popular again.

During this time they also tried to make a national costume for the entire country, the Hardanger bunad (which is the one CP Mette-Marit wore this year), but that didn't work out. Each region/district wanted their own bunad which belonged to that specific area. It's a nice way to see where people come from or have their roots.

Sorry had no time to check my post yesterday, obviously "hate" was meant to be "hat"!! She may be sweet and good looking but she is a Princess and her public want to see her face. I just think Mette-Marit should wear a hat that shows her face, all the other princess' can find them so I can only assume Mette-Marit likes to be a little hidden.

I like to keep the sun of my face but I do not do that by hiding my face under a big, dark hat.

Its just funny. If Mette Marit wear a headpiece and you can see all of her face it is wrong and everybody cries that she should youse a normal head. And if she wear a normal hat everybody cries that nobody can see her face. What do you want?
I think that she can really carry out these headpieces and hats aren't her thing. In my family we say that if anyone has a Hatface she can wear a teekettle on her head and it would look great. But if you don#t have a hatface you don't look great with the loveliest hat at all. Perhapes Mette Marit don't feel that she has a hatface.

I agree. It seems that Mette-Marit can't win with her hat choices. I found her national day hat lovely. Other royal women wear huge hats in which you can't see their faces very well and get praised for them.

I think when it come to Mette Marit - she is an easy target so most people criticize her for the same things other crown princesses get praised for.

For Maxima -it she so exuberant she can carry it off.

For Mary - she is so elegant.

Pah!!! Of all the crown princesses she has not been able to carve out her own personna, her own style, her own path. I think most people use the outrage at her "past" as a way to never see anything positive in her.
I see a really beautiful, self-posessed and strong woman. (I know if I were in her shoes, I would crumbled under this much criticism)
Give her a break! So it wasn't the greatest hat - but does that mean she should now be lynched.

I don't think there is anything wrong with Mette Marit's hat. I liked it.

I liked her hat too, and I especially liked the Crown Prince's hat :)

Don't get me wrong. I do like MM and admire her for many things. However, I don't think she can pull off that kind of extravagant hats, the reason being that for such a hat you must be dressed to the nines and make up your face. If Mary wears a hat, her clothes fit perfectly and her face is made up and matches this. If Maxima wears a hat, the hat is not as important has her huge, outgoing, immensely friendly personality, so it doesn't matter if the hat is awful. MM seems a bit withdrawn at times and hardly wore any makeup on May 17, so in the hat she looks a bit like dressing up.

In the morning you could see all the photographers gathering infront of Skaugum, they obiously knew each other well because they were talking and laughing and shaking hands with each other. Mette-Marits mother was also at Skaugum in the morning, she was standing descreetly behind the photographers and only Se og Hør seems to have noticed her and has a picture of her.

Some more of Ingrid in her tiny Hardanger bunad, from Rex

Thanks for the pictures everybody!

Marius, Ingrid Alexandra, and Sverre all looked so adorable! Why didn't Marius and Sverre join the family on the balcony?

Marius is going to be a serious heartbreaker one day....
