All three kids looked rather cold and annoyed, IMO. But the outfits are nice, and hopefully all Norwegians have enjoyed the day.

I look forward to these pics every year! I love little Sverre! He is one of my absolute favorites among the young royals. Just something about him, he appears to have quite the personality. His sister Ingrid on the other hand seems to be getting more and more shy. I hope she will grow out of that within time. Because if she doesn't her future could be much harder.

I can't believe Sonja wore the ribbon on the wrong side! How does that happen to the Queen? Strange!

All in all I thought every one looked nice considering the weather. I loved the balcony scene the best. Wonderful color for MM and I liked her hair.

Happy National Day Norway!!!!!

They all look really nice. I love Mette-Marit's hair, hat and Ingrid's little pink bow.
Magnus has such a cute face, somehow he looks like the "typical little prince". I think it is a little sad though that he can't be on the balcony.

Thanks for all the links!!!!!!!!!!! I love this family

Too bad the weather was bad. I've read that state meteorologists were predicting that this will be the coldest 17th of May in 50 years. Story here.

I think Ingrid was not feeling well in Skaugum because of the snow. http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/May2008/PPE08051726.jpg But she looked happier in the palace balcony.

Does anyone know how long the parade in Skaugum usually lasts?

Mette-Marit's mother Marit also was in Palace. Mother and dother became really close after death of CP stepfather. I respect Mette-Marit for supporting her mom so much.

The parade usualle last between 3 and 4 hours, depending on how many different schools are walking in the parade. I think this year it was around four hours. Princess Ingrid Alexandra is the only one you don't have to be on the balcony for the whole period of time. She is here from teh beginnin, when the Royal House first greets the people and for the singing og the Natinal Anthem. Then she goes inside after a half an hour to an hour I think, and come back outside sometime before the last schools walk before the palace. Then she goes inside with the others after the Royal guards have ended the parade and the Royals have greeted the people and their cheers one more time on all three sides of the balcony. The little Princess smiled real cute during this part:)

It is a long time to stand there, and especially yesterday when it was cold, but I think it does mean quite a lot to the people that they do. When the King was sick and did not stand on the balcony some years ago, many people, children as well, who was watching from outside the Palace and/or walked in the parade was dispointed over not seeing The King.

Another link, this one is from the Parade in Oslo. It takes some time before the Royals arrive, so be patient and also at the end of the video there is a nice pictures from when the Royals wave and receive cheers and well wishes from the people.

Sverre and Magnus certainly look like brothers.

edit:
I meant Sverre and Marius look alike.

I felt sorry for the kids, it looked really cold and I-A didn't look like she felt very good. Magnus is adorable, he looks just like Marius and if he can grow up to be like Marius, he has a great role model in his big brother to follow. Marius is growing up too fast, he is now a young man, not a little boy. I am glad to hear that I-A doesn't have to stay on the balcony the entire time, that is too much for such a little girl. But boy, at least I think so, you could really see her personality in the pictures, she is very headstrong, which is probably good for what lies ahead for her. It is so much fun getting to watch these wonderful children grow up.

All the children definitely looked quite annoyed in the morning. Can't say I blame them! The weather looked freezing. But Ingrid seemed to have cheered up by the afternoon, and looked quite happy on the balcony. I loved Mette-Marit's whole look on the balcony-great hat, great hair, great coat!

I also thought M-M looked really great and I loved the picture of her and I-A playing on the balcony. CP H-M & M-M look like such great parents, I can't wait for them to have another child.
