You could see several guests crying (like Sharon Stone, MM and I had the feeling Sonja had wet eyes, too.)

Thank you all for the excellent pictures and information of the event.
Her_Majesty, thank you very much for posting Yanus's speech. I find it very moving and full of meaning. I can understand why Mette-Marit and others were so moved.

Nobel Peace Prize laureates Muhammad Yunus and Grameen Bank representative Mosammat Taslima Begum are congratulated by Crown Princess Mette-Marit during the award ceremony at Oslo Town Hall Sunday, Dec. 10, 2006. Yunus, often called the banker to the poor, received the Nobel Peace Prize on Sunday for his efforts to relieve poverty as a cornerstone for building peace. Behind them are King Harald and Queen Sonja and right Crown Prince Haakon.

Cool

Mette-Marit and Queen Sonia were quite elegant. I heard Mr.Yunus' speech on CNN and it was very moving and I can understand Mette-Marit's emotional reaction as well as Haakon's.

Well call me a kill joy but here it goes. This is a HAPPY occasion and yet Mette-Marit dresses like she is going to a funeral, again, the suit is to big and looks like a sack, the color is dreary and the thick stockings again, she sits like a sack of potaoes in her chair and when she got out of the car she hardly knew where to stand. Sonja also chose an outfit she has worn 5678 times before and tops it of with a hat that looks like a mushroom and the evening outfit is another disapointment, brown and black and then top it of with a giant pink rose . Call in the stylists for the Norwegian royal family please. This is the one time the worlds eyes are at Norway, why not dress up for the occasion and play the part. Im usually a fan of Sofias clothes but even her suit looked like i was for a pre-funeral event.

That beeing Said Yunus gave the best nobel speech I have heared in a long time, very inspiering. And I thought it was so nice he had brought several of the participants in the microcredit program with him to Oslo. His daughter will sing for him at the Nobel concer tonight

On the other hand, at least she has some kind of proper hairstyle instead of the usual let-it-all-hand-down style she prefers.

I`m agree with you Larzen. Mette Marit dresses like she is going to a funral. Why cant she use more COLOUR in the dresses?

It isn't just the dark colors, but M-M's clothes are also so ill-fitting. The top looks like it is way to big. And while I applaud that at least she did SOMETHING with hair, the bun looks horrible. Somewhat sad when she is outshined by actresses and commoners.

Another questions, how come the Swedish Nobel Ceremony is so full of glitter and color while the Norwegian one is so subdued, which is made even worse this year as the RF looks like they are attending a funeral.

Because the Nobel Comitee wants it that way, the royal family dont arrange the events, they show up at the events they are invited to. The nobel comitee has said they want the focus to be at the Laureate and his work, and like in this case, are we gonna honour a man who lends 27 dollar to 40 people by the Queen showing up in a tiara worth a million dollars.

Even this year the Nobel Comitee had to vote over if they for the first time was going to invite the King and Queen to the Awards dinner because they did not want it to be to formal or stiff or take attention from the prizewinner. And IMO they suceed, the papers today mostly write about Yunus and his great speech and work, and in Sweden they write about the dresses, the tiaras, the food, the flowers, who sat where and who danced with who.

And Really I dont think the ceremony is void of colour (not counting the royal family) the City Hall was decorated in bright red and orange, it was lots of dancers in bangladesh in the strongest colours possible, and also on the Laureates side of the hall it was plenty of women in colourful saris. In the evening there was a torchlight procession outside the Grand Hotel with Dr Yunus greeting them in a quite moving moment, I doubt he found it subdued.

IMO, Mette looked much better today! She is still very darkly dressed , but this dress fits much better. I also like her hair and make-up!

Oh yes.. They reported this in TV today. Sharon thought she was in Hollywood and arrived 10 minutes to late. A no-go in the protocol, because the King and Queen have already been there and they have to attend at last, I think
