Maybe I missed it...but I notice that there are no bows/curtseys to either Daniel/Victoria or to Haakon and Metit-Marit? Aren't they both ranking above the Cambridges who are 'merely' heirs to the heir?

Normally the royals just bow/curtsy to King and Queen.

Thank ROYAL NORWAY for the information and update!

You're very welcome!

There was never going to be any bows/curtseys for the CP couples.
They will do it so to the King and Queen, but we wont see that.

There will now be a private tour and luncheon inside the palace. - They will come out again at 15:00 (14:00 British time) with the Queen, Princess Ingrid and the CP couple (see more information in post 38).

What matters is the style rather than the ranking. The ducal couple and the Crown Princely couples all have the HRH style, so they are considered peers.

Live pictures on NRK now by HM the King (my favourite guy) and the Queen, the CP couple, Princess Märtha Louise, Princess Astrid and the Cambridges in The Bird Room at the royal palace.

Edit: One of the photos:

Edit: 3 more photos:

Edit: Photos from the court - The Cambridges are welcomed to the palace by HM the King:
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...25&oe=5B22E5E2
https://scontent-arn2-1.xx.fbcdn.net...6e&oe=5B1F1F56

Edit: I wrote this in post 19, and (big surprise) I was right.
Quote:
The TV Coverage: What will the Norwegian commentators talk about during the visit? Brexit (a lot of it), QEII, Diana, the future of the British monarchy and the ridiculous ''Could the throne go to William, Skipping Prince Charles'' thing.
Edit:
The NRK Coverage:
Wery pro-Diana/Cambridges, but very anti-Charles.
Diana documentary on NRK2 when The Cambridges was inside the palace.

The TV2 Coverage:
Very pro-Cambridges, not anything on Charles/Diana at all.

Edit: They will come out shortly.

Edit: Watch the live links in post 42.

Edit: The Queen, the CP couple, Princess Ingrid Alexandra and the Cambridges walks out from the palace now.
The Queen and Ingrid will accompany the Cambridges on a walk in Princess Ingrid Alexandra's Sculpture Park.

Edit: The Queen and Ingrid arm in arm.

Edit: The Cambridges on walkabout (unusual here in Norway).

Edit: The CP couple is holding hands (as usual).

Edit: We got this information from the court earlier today:
Quote:
Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess accompany His Royal Highness The Duke of Cambridge on a visit to MESH (Oslo, 16:00).
This has now been changed (according to TV2). - Kate will attend.

Edit: TV2 are impressed by the crowds.

Edit: TV2 is most interested in Ingrid (and she's really doing a good job).

Edit: They are walking into the palace.

Edit: They will now be heading to MESH (a co-working space for entrepreneurs and start-up companies to grow their businesses and thrive in a creative environment).

Edit: They are driving out of the palace now.

Edit: They arrive at the MESH.

Edit: NRK and TV2 have live pictures inside the MESH, so keep watching in the live links in post 42.

Edit: They are meeting the famous Norwegian chess player Magnus Carlsen.

Edit: Ignorant TV2 anchor ask their UK correspondent in London why it is William and not the Queen or Charles who is coming? Because Charles is unpopular, she said.

Edit: From a Charles perspective, the coverage has been ridiculous.

Edit: The NRK coverage will finish now and start again at 19:30 (18:30 British time).

Edit: Still live coverage on TV2 News Channel.

Edit: The CP couple and the Cambridges are on their way back to the palace.

They normally bow/curtsy only to kings and queens. HRHs are now considered equal in rank, even if one is a crown prince and the other is only the second in line to the throne.

This is interesting to me, as William has always struck me as the more outgoing, extroverted of the Royal Trio (I imagine Meghan might be a bit more so, now, but time will tell.) And very charming, just a little more serious, as his role requires frequently.

I've never noticed at William lacking any social skills. Anytime I've seen him in the past several years he is very relaxed and interacts well with whomever he's engaged with.

Lovely start of the visit. I think Mette-Marit is a bit taller than Catherine. I've read somewhere that Mette-Marit is 1,80cm and Catherine is 1,77/1,78cm.
It was nice that Ingrid Alexandra was there to guide them through her park. So sweet! And she is so grown up! A truly lady!

Video articles from NRK with google translations and quotes translated by me:
Dronning Sonja gav klar beskjed under fotograferinga: – Smile, be happy! - translation
Quote:
Queen Sonja gave a clear message during the photography: - smile, be happy!
William and Kate waved to those present when they came to the palace where they were greeted by the Norwegian royal family. It's the start of a two-day long visit to Norway for the duke and duchess.

"Smile, be happy," said Queen Sonja, when they posed for official photos in the The Bird Room.
Hertuginne Kate: – Norge er fantastisk - translation
Quote:
A large crowd met up in the palace park to get a glimpse of William and Kate. The royal guests obviously got a good first impression of Norway. "It's amazing here," said the duchess , while William would like to go skiing.
A poor 40 min Dagbladet video from the event in Princess Ingrid Alexandra's Sculpture Park:

Warm welcomes all around in Norway!

Haakon and Mette Marit seem to have done a wonderful job with Ingrid Alexandra. I’ve always enjoyed seeing her participate in various events since she was small.. she’s always been cute but each time you see her she becomes more poised and today she was quite the professional young royal. Well done!

Facts about royal dinners in Norway. - I wrote this in post 2:
Quote:
Royal dinners at the Royal Palace in Oslo:

Gala dinners at the Royal Palace are always white tie events and is held for:

1. Milestone royal birthdays. The procession into the Banqueting Hall was televised by NRK1 durring the King and Queen's Silver Wedding Anniversary in 1993 and the 70th Birthday of the King in 2007 (their 60th birthdays was celebrated in Trondheim due to renovations at the palace). The greetings, procession and speeches was televised by NRK1 and TV2's main channel during the wedding in 2001 and by NRK1 and TV2 News Channel during the King and Queen's 80th Birthdays in 2017.

2. The MPs in the Storting (called the stortingsdinner) in October each year. The procession and speeches is always televised by TV2 News Channel (also by NRK2 in 2017).

3. Foreign ambassadors living in Oslo - every other year. Private, but the procession was filmed by NTB (Norsk Telegrambyrå/Norwegian News Agency) in 2016.

4. Foreign heads of states during state visits. The procession and speeches is always televised by TV2 News Channel.

Official dinners at the Royal Palace are always black tie and is held for:

1. Royals (usually not the monarch).

2. Heads of States who are not on a state visits.
I have edited this post from the ''Annual Gala for Stortinget'' thread in October:
The guests will be greeted by the King and Queen, the CP couple, Princess Märtha Louise, Princess Astrid and the Cambridges in Speilsalen (the Music Hall) - photo of the room:
