Oh, really? That's cool! Are they showing it the whole afternoon like on the nobel.se Website?

Dark colours again... Mette-Marit looks very casual, well at least not very festive or official, and Sonja has a strange very informal hat... M-M one of those black hairpieces she loves...

It's very interesting, I've never seen one of these live before. I think Mette-Marit looks really great, so do everyone else.

Maybe OT or obvious, but why is the Peace Prize done in Norway, but all of the others in Sweden.

It is not obvious, and it is not truelly known why Alfred Nobel chose to have The Peace Prize awarded in Oslo. He stated in his will that it was to be so, but he did however, not explain why.

Here are some useful homepages with more information.

Nobelprize.org and The Norwegian Nobel Institute

CP Mette Marit is using a very elegant black coat with a very beautiful detail in the collar.

MM looked lovely, expected her to be in black today. I liked the hair piece (doesnt look new) Queen jacket was nice as well also liked her hat, made her look a few years younger.

Sorry folks, but I think that Mette Marit really needs to incorporate some color into her wardrobe. The monochromatic black look just drains any color from her face. If she insists on wearing a black suit, perhaps she could coordinate it with a bright colored sweater or blouse and some "lighter" black stockings rather than the black opaques.

She's an attractive woman but it's lost in all the black.

I love Sonja's hat! Not sure about the blouse yet, but the hat is great!

I also like Mette's outfit!
okay, it is black, but it looks elegant, IMO!
The cardigan looks great on her!

Red face

I really noticed a difference this year. Possibly I haven't paid much attention before. But in Norway the ceremony is more about the winners and it being their day. The royal family is there but they are not capturing or trying to caprture all the attention. Whereas in Sweden, it seems that people are much more focused on the royals being in their dresses and tiaras. Though it's nice to see the royals in Sweden being showy in their best stuff. I think I prefer the approach of the Norwegians.

I thought everyone looked lovely and appropriate. Possibly M-M needed jewelry in the one outfit she was wearing.

I actually prefer Sweden's approach (white tie and tiaras) to Norway's (casual - and I didn't even recognize the Queen with her hat, glasses and blouse!). I don't think it's about the royal families versus the winners.

I love this picture so much, it's a great one of the couple!

Mett-Marit looked lovely. Although I sincerely hoped she wouldn't wear black/dark colour, the Princess looked so fresh and so lovely, that I don't mind the colour of the outfit at all.

Like Aurora810, I prefer the Norwegian way of 'celebrating' the winners. They are the main heroes, not the Royal Family, so I think it's appropirate to be a little dressed down, to have more focus on the people, who had deserved it with their hard work.
I don't mind Swedish pomp and tiaras at all though.
