Sonja looked stunning today. Red suits her so much! (even if I was hoping for a new hat ...)
I love the pictures of Grandma Sonja talking with Ingrid Alexandra.

Mette-Marit looked beautiful today. I first wasn't sure about the hat, but I start to like it.


Haakon looked so charming during the whole day... I'm glad her decided to wear the National Costume as well!

Happy National day to all of Norway.

I love to see this family. I can't get over how much little Ingrid and Sverre have changed. I thought everyone looked great. I love that they honor the tradition of the National costumes.

I like the way the royal family of the Netherlands include everyone, even the ones who were "dis-inherited" instead of just the people in direct line to the throne. IMO I actually worry more for Sverre then I do Marius regarding this because Marius knows he isn't a blood relation to the King but Sverre is, especally if the Princely family don't have anymore children. If there are more children, then he won't feel so left out as he gets older. Again, IMO Being the youngest of four children I think I am more sensative to the feeling of being left out of things.
I dont think it is a bid deal for the kids, Ingrid looked already pretty bored out there as soon as she entered, they stay there for around 3 hours, small children dont have this kind of patience, Ingrid stayed there for around 30 minutes before she went inside. When you are a child national day is the day to eat sausages and icecream and run around a play all sorts of games, walking in the parade with your class and such things. So Im sure when Sverre and Ingrid start school they will do as Marius does now, stand on the stairs of skaugum for some minutes and then join their clas and have fun with them, and Sverre will have probably have a much better time than Ingrid who will have to be on the balconny ever national day for the rest of her life, if someone might feel left out it might be her. And when Sverre grows up Im sure he will understand this artifical Royal house/royal family thing.

Haakon, Mette-Marit and Sverre was wearing costumes from Asker, Marius from Vest Agder and Ingrid from Hardanger, the ones from Asker was a gift from the municipality and the local arts and craft organisation

I think it's so cute how all of the children have their own outfits. Even little Sverre! And Ingrid is really growing up, and is looking like a little girl.

MM looked a little chubby with the custome but I really liked her outfit at the balcony. I don't think she's specially beautiful but she has a good taste on clothes. The children were adorable, specially Sverre who seemed to have had more fun than Ingrid. Marius is a handsome boy, MM will have problems in the future. A lot of so-called future daughters-in-law to deal with...

I thought that Queen Sonja looked absolutley wonderful in red her red suit and hat. I also thought that Mette-Marit looked nice and I liked her hat but I would have preferred it if she was wearing a bolder color. I loved the pictures of Ingrid peeking over the balcony.

Does anyone know what the ribbons and pins they are wearing are for? BTW, I hope all of our Norwegian members had a wonderful National Day!

But they do this only on Queens Day which is not so formal. On Prinsjesdag when they appear on the Balcony of Palais Noordeinde also only the ones who are members of the Royal House are and the do not include Maurits and Marilène and Bernhard jr. and Annette who still belong to the Royal House.
But what i not understand in Norway that the make a difference between Haakon's children. Märtha Louise ws always on the Balcony until 2001 and i believe also Harald's sisters before the got married.

The ribbons in the national colours (red, white and blue), you mean? It is traditional to pin these onto the outfit on May 17th.

They all look if they had just had a major fight...slightly rumpled and exhausted. Maybe it was a bit of a battle to get the kids all dressed up and ready to go. :-)

That, and princess Ingrid Alexandra being 3 years old, and probably in the middle of the tantrum period of her life. I've heard that she can be quite a strong-willed little miss. I suppose it's girl power or something, being in the middle with two brothers
