And Mette-Marit's in black. It makes it harder to see the stomach, but looks great with her blonde hair.
I can sort of identify with Mette-Marit wearing so much brown and black. We do miss out on seeing her pregnant in bright colors but she must have her own reasons for dressing in dark colors. Into my 6th month, I began getting "huge" and started rummaging through my husband's closet to find big dark bulky sweaters and shirts. I just didn't want people to look at my ever - growing belly! .. and, I often became tired of "everyone wanting to feel my stomach"! Maternity dress only lasts for about 9 months so why blow a lot of money on "everyday" maternity wear? In MM's case, however, I think she just glows during this pregnancy of hers. It's not that too far away ~ January 22nd, 2004! I hope she has a safe delivery. Can't wait!

Article on how Haakon and Marius broke the royal tradition, and attended the church service on Christmas eve.
VG Nett - Hovedsiden
Quote:
Marius overrasket

Kronprins Haakon og lille Marius brøt kongelig tradisjon da de  gikk i kirken julaften, skriver NTB.

Kronprins Haakon og Marius dukket overraskende dukket opp i Asker kirke til familiegudstjeneste på selveste julaften.
Tidligere har 1. juledag vært den store kirkedagen for kongefamilien. Kronprinsparet gikk for øvrig i kirken julaften for to år siden, da de feiret jul i sitt hjem i Ullevålsveien. Men da skjedde kirkebesøket nærmest anonymt. Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit, som venter barn om fire uker, skulle være med til Asker kirke julaften, men har trolig ikke følt seg i form til å gå. Med i kronprinsens følge til kirken var kronprinsessens sønn Marius, kronprinsessens mor Marit Tjessem og hennes ektemann Rolf Berntsen, og to av søsknene med barn. 
 
Velkommen 
 
Sognepresten i Asker kirke, Øyvind Backer, ønsket kronprinsen velkommen til den fullsatte kirken, der den kongelige gjesten og hans følge var plassert på egne stoler på høyre side foran i kirken. 

Asker kirke ligger bare en knapp kilometer fra kronprinsboligen på Skaugum. 1. januar i år ble kronprinsparet ønsket velkommen til menigheten av blant andre biskop Gunnar Stålsett. Denne dagen overtok kronprins Haakon formelt kronprinsboligen Skaugum, samtidig som Asker ble eget prosti. 
 
Kongefamilien har vært flittige kirkegjengere i Asker kirke helt siden daværende kronprins Olav og kronprinsesse Märtha fikk Skaugum i bryllupsgave i 1929. Prinsesse Astrid og prinsesse Ragnhild giftet seg i Asker kirke og prinsesse Märtha Louise er konfirmert her, og utenfor kirken står en statue av prinsesse Märtha. 
 
Fullsatt kirke 
 
Asker kirke var fullsatt til siste benkerad med kirkegjengere i alle aldre julaften. Her var sikkert også flere av klassekameratene til seksåringen Marius på Jansløkka skole, som ligger mellom Skaugum og kirken. 
 
Både små og store askerbøringer stemte i «Deilig er jorden» og andre kjente julesalmer før de gikk hver til sitt for videre julefeiring. På Skaugum dukket kanskje også nissen opp fra fjøs eller stall.

Thank you for these pictures jun5 and liliawodna.

Maud Angelica always has the nicest outfits! Her super-flared red velvet (?) pants are absolutely adorable!

Yes, it would appear that Maud has her mother's taste for fashion already. Coolest baby around.

She is the coolest baby, isn't she?!

Just wait until Catharina-Amalia is Maud's age! I bet mommy Maxima has tons of adorable outfits for her little darhling to wear!

Your welcome, jun5.

Yes, next year's picture will be extra wonderful! An almost 1-year-old baby for the CP couple and Maud Angelica a year and a half.

And King Harald back in better health, Queen Sonja will be over the moon!

Maud Angelica is indeed adorable.

Is it just me or does she look a little bit like Ari in the Afterposten picture? I think it's the eyes ...
