Not that surprising, since they are not the types to say no when people ask, and that's a good thing, I think.

English article: Crown Prince couple is warmly welcomed in Vestfold - Norway Today

--------------------

Today they will do what I wrote in post 16.
In addition, the CP couple invites representatives from the 5 municipalities they have visited to a reception on board The Royal Yacht. - And even better, the court has allowed TV2 News Channel to film parts of it.
Well, that new communications director really does a good job, doesn't she?
And let's hope it continues.

The Royal House article about the visit to Horten and Færder, who iceflower posted above, has been updated with more text and photos.

--------------------

Here are som photos from the reception at The Royal Yacht this evening (which I wrote about this morning in post 21):

And a photo of the beautiful lady herself in the background (taken yesterday).

--------------------

And now let's talk about my favourite yachts or ships (call it what you want):

First place: The Royal Yacht Norge.

Second place: MS Nordstjernen.
She was protected as a national heritage in Norway by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage in 2012.
Look at this photo. Yes, I do LOVE her, even been on board.

Third place: MS Lofoten.
She was declared worthy of preservation in 2001 by the Directorate for Cultural Heritage.
Look at this photo. - Isn't she beautiful?

Fourth place: The Royal Yacht Dannebrog

Beautiful ships with beautiful lines, what more can you give me.

I think it's a beautiful line-up of three vessels and a ship, Dannebrog.
You win no prize for guessing which one I find the most beautiful.

the Norge and Dannebrog are beautiful sights to see. Love that Norway and Denmark uses them.
Not sure about the two other vessels, the black bottom parts.

Its been a nice visit so far.

If you like very feminine lines, then Dannebrog is your girl.

IMO, that's what highlights the lines.

BTW, I forgot to mention another beauty, The Royal Yacht Britannia: photo 1 - photo 2

A pity Britannia was retired.

I love feminine lines! - Also on women.

All nice looking ships. However, my favourite is the Dannebrog in looks and love her interiors. I especially love the way the Royal family use her.
She is a home away from home.

Yes, but it should be mentioned that the NRF use The Royal Yacht Norge as much as the DRF use Dannebrog.

The Regent/CP Couples use her for their annual county-visits, for other visits and engagements around the country - and for private trips/cruises.
She's also used during the King's sailing competitions, and is on disposal to the private use of Princess Astrid.

And Dannebrog before this beauty for a Norwegian like me? NOOOO WAY (although all Danes in their right minds will of course disagree with me).

Here are some videos of her: 1 - 2 - 3

And here's a photo from the Queen's 70th Birthday in 2007, when our Danish friends came to visit

Well, this was it for my babbling of royal yachts, at least for now.

Avsluttet i Stavern - kongehuset.no - translation

--------------------

Summary of the visit:
Large crowds, enthusiastic people, mayors who are proud to showcase their municipalities - and a CP Couple on their best behavior, taking their time with children/elderly, eating apples and talking positively to the press.
So, mission accomplished.

Media-coverage:
Well, the CP Couple are in a very (almost surprisingly) good period when it comes to the media at the moment. - With news-anchor and TV2 journalist, Elin Ludvigsen, even describing them as ''vårt kjære kronprinspar'' (our dear CP Couple) live on TV2 News Channel. She and TV2's royal expert, Kjell Arne Totland (who was so excited that he nearly fainted), reported live from Vestfold during most of the engagements.

But how long will it last this time?
Because we have to remember that they were in a good period after the Regent Couple's 80th Birthday Celebrations last year as well (although not at the same level as we see now), until they messed it up for themselves again.

So my advice to them is:
1. Stay away from your politician-friends.
2. No more whining about the press when it comes to Marius.
3. And Haakon, for God's sake, not use the court's money on organizations/conferences such as Global Dignity and SIKT. - Because it does nothing more than to stir up journalists and MPs in the Storting.
