That's odd - because there have been pictures the previous years, if I recall correctly.

Never from the bishop dinner Except in 2004 they showed a little glimpse on the Year with the Royal family. Then the King said it was a tradition King Haakon started that this gala dinner for the bishops was completely private and this was a tradtion he and his father had kept. In the images one could see all the bishops in their robes, Haakon and Harald in white tie and Mette-Marit and Sonja in long dresses and tiaras. And then The dinner started by the bishop singing some traditional hymn. They were all sitting around a quite small candel-light table

There are always pictures from the Gala Dinner for Stortinget, often from the gala dinner for diplomats and sometimes from the dinner for county men.

It seems an american TV channel that was interviewing Haakon was present at the dinner, here are some screen caps.

Maybe the reason ti was secret was the ugly gowns Sonjas dress must be from the dark ages and Mette-Marits dress from the homepage with an added black/purpel belt is not really a hit.

What do I see glittering on Sonja's head? The Malteser Tiara with all crosses.

Mette-Marit's outfit looked horrible. I never liked this pink galadress.. but it looks even worse with this black belt.
I cannot remember the Queen's dress... It must be something new .. or something really old.

Yes, it is the same dress.
It is the same dress as in this picture: kongehuset.no - Forsiden

That dress is very simple and elegant. She looks wonderful in pink. She should wear pink more often.
