though it is 10 and so years old, but i like queen sonja's dress too, i thought that it was new! because i don't recall seeing it before. cp. mm looked beautiful in the pink dress and hairstyle. p. astrid looked pretty too and the top of her dress looked very similar to cp. mm dress during queen margrethe 70th birthday celebrations:

Tonight is the annual gala dinner for the Members of Parliament.
Unfortunately CP Mette-Marit won't participate because she is at home with a sick child, said the assistant communications manager Sven Gjeruldsen.

I was really looking forward to see her

Some general information about the Parliamentary Dinner: Tradition and change - quite interesting.

No she wasn't. And unfortunately I don't know the reason why not.

Thanks, fairy tale

Sad that princess Astrid wasn't there I really like her, she's one of my favourite from the norwegian royals
And it is also sad that Mette-Marit couldn't be there. If I did understand correctly one of the kids is sick Hope is nothing serious, only one of those things kids are always having or maybe a bit of flu due to the weather

That photogallery you posted is really nice, even if there are only a few pics of the royal family. The king and the queen seem to be having a good time and it's nice to see the queen laughing because I have the feeling that it is so rare of her to do so in public.
It's funny how after almost a year after returning from Norway and checking aftenposten.no very oftenly to be updated about that wonderful country some of those faces (in the gallery) are somehow familiar to me

As a mother I can understand that she wanted to be with her kid, but it is also sad, that we see her so rarely... :(

It has some funny parts in it, for example talking about the new book about the Queen:
"I must admit that I have read the book with great interest. Finally, I begin to understand the woman who meant so much to me, and as I have lived with for so long. Some might remark that it was then certainly about time. But some of us men may be a little slow."
(Queen Sonja's look at 8:25 in the video )

He as also talking about the death of Princess Ragnhild:
"When a loved one passes away, we understand how important it is to take care of each other. It is undoubtedly true that it is infinitely short - the time we have together."

As posted in the CP Mette-Marit thread (on phone, can't link), she has the flu, since around the 7th. Since flu lasts about three weeks, she is still sick.

Annual Gala 2013

Quote:
24.10.2013 Official dinner
Their Majesties The King and Queen host the annual dinner in honour of the members of Parliament at the Royal Palace. His Royal Highness The Crown Prince will also be in attendance (20:00).
A pity that CP Mette-Marit won't attend due to her illness.

I only know that she attended in 2001 (Picture) and 2002 (Picture, also Ari Behn attended in 2002 - he didn't arrive with the Royal family but with the King's adjutant Picture).

QS looks tired and just down in the dumps...she is walking with her head somewhat down and maybe she is thinking, Oh no not another fancy dinner when all I want is my bed and hot tea and a good book.
