They usually go to church on the 25th. I wonder if there no pics available yet?

Love the photo SM escorting his grandma. The men in this family are professional in escorting ladies.

Thanks eya & iceflower!

Yes, as one can see - and as W.Y.CII stated, Sverre is supporting his grandmother on the icy (although sanded) ground, while The King (whose walking is not the best these days, due to back/leg pains) managed himself without any help (not bad): TV2 video (link).

And here are some more photos. - If they don't show, click on them more than once:

The King and the royals bid farewell to Chaplain, Silje Karlsen (left) and Church-verger, Inger Margrethe Magnus (right):

The Queen and Sverre:

The Crown Princess in a very good mood:

And here is a picture of the King's main state-car with the royal name A2 (a 2016 Audi A8 Extended Limousine), which The Regent-Couple, Ingrid and Sverre arrived/left in (while the CP-Couple arrived/left in one of the court's smaller cars, a bit difficult to see which one):

Better photo, taken during the Icelandic state visit in 2017 (link).

About Holmenkollen Chapel: Wikipedia article.

BTW: Princess Astrid (who now celebrates elsewhere with her own bunch) has always had good childhood-memories from the Christmas-services in Holmenkollen, and since she and her family have always belonged to Ris Parish, which manages the chapel, she chose to christen all her five children there.
It was also the place where her third child and oldest son, Alexander Ferner, married in 1997 - and where the funeral service of her husband, Johan Martin Ferner, was held in 2015. And it was the princess herself who raised most of the money to the rebuilding of the new chapel-bulding after the old one was set on fire and burned down as a criminal offence (by arson) in 1992 (read more about it in the article).

And here are some pictures of the chapel - and the view from it over Oslo, taken today:

Yes, and according to themselves, it is due to these two reasons:
1. The children.
2. That they still enjoy each other's company.

Royal Norway, or someone else who understands spoken Norwegian, what was Mette-Marit asked and what was her answer at the end of the video (TV2 video)?

Tusen tak!

Yes, post #762. I think she and the girls attended last year with their Majesties, while the CP couple were with Mette-Marit's mom. (I may be wrong)

It would be nice to see all of them together, though. I guess we'll have to wait for paparazzi pics of a family vacation

She was asked (by TV2's reporter) whether it has been a nice service, to which she replied: ''Ja, nydelig (Yes, lovely)!''

And BTW: ''Thanks'' means ''takk'' in Norwegian, while ''tak'' is the Danish version.

Do you mean at the Christmas-service in Holmenkollen Chapel? No, not when they are celebrating with the Behns, which they tend to do every other year.

As I wrote in post 746, which is also quoted in post 762:
1. ''Ari celebrated with the royals last year,'' which of course means that Märtha and the children were there as well.
2. ''The CP-family celebrated with CP MM's family at Skaugum last year.''

Ah, so it was a white Christmas for the NRF! Nice to see them together at the service.

What a beautiful Chapel. All that glowing wood and those wonderful chandeliers make it look like Christmas and it must look the same all year. What a beautiful place for the congregation worship an how special it must be for the NRF to join them to celebrate Christmas in serenity and joy.
