I like this dress on Sonja. It doesn't look as "Barbie" as some of her other dresses .
Btw, she wore the same skirt during the Nobel Gala last year; combined with a different top.

And some more pictures of the ceremony

The Queen
The Crown Princess

Mette-Marit arriving
The black coat looks really nice!

Yesterday I was watching the news in the morning and I started to chuckle to myself. The had a very quick, and I do mean very quick "blip" on the award. they showed Mr. Gore getting his award and they panned to the Queen and MM. Had I blinked I would have missed the whole "report" as it was that quick.
Pretty sad if you ask me. Not to spend any more time than 3 seconds on people who are getting a great award for doing something special. They would rather spend lots more time dedicated to war, death, destrcuction,rape, ect. ect. Makes me wonder about these so called news people/channels.

Is this boy charming or what?
How great to see Marius joining his mum to this concert!
He looks like a little gentleman already. he's so handsome!

I'm not very impressed by his mum's black outfit with matching stockings...
but Marius saved my day!

I think you have to consider where you are in the world. It appears you are in the U.S., me too. I think it is much bigger news in other parts of the world, here in America, too many other headlines are competing with it. In past years the Nobel Peace prize has gotten really small attention here, imo. This year it did receive some mention which I believe to be only because of Gore and his status as a former vice president. My local news where I'm at said nothing about it, but I did see the ceremony on C-Span live as it was happening. As soon as the main portions were over they did cut it short but I loved being able to see the speeches and seeing the royals on my television versus just in pics. But believe me, I understand the frustration about our big national news stations, I have that same frustration some times. But at least we get to come here and see more pics and get more info!

Rominet09,
please have a closer look at the previous pages. You'll find many pictures of the Crown Princely couple during the ceremony.

Wonderful picture!
It's great to see Haakon rocking the party!

Remember that this cermony and its approach is not so close to the royals that most people think.The host of the evening is not the Royals but the Nobel foundation and its President, they have decided about the nature of the ceremony. In Sweden the Nobel foundation made the ceremony more formal. The Royals are only there as guests and nothing more.
At the evening of 11 december in Stockholm the King hosts a formal dinner in honour of the Laureates at the Royal castle.

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.

A royal affair - Aftenposten.no
According to Aftenposten.no/english Haakon is a "Crown Princess" ..
I always thought that it's Haakon is "he' and not "she" ...

Now, what IS she wearing! Black again, much too short, totally unflattering, makes her look slightly pregnant...another opportunity wasted to look good in public.

Well, I have to agree.
When I saw first pictures (showing just the collar of the dress) I thought that this dress might look pretty. But when I saw the first pictures of the complete dress I had no words, because the dress is totally unflattering.
Luckily MM took Marius to the concert and luckily Haakon rocked during the show. They saved the event.

I might be in the minority, but I happen to think that she looks good in black clothes, as long as they've got the right, non-frumpy cut - definitely over beige as she seemed to favour at a time, or matronly suits.

The outfit looks good - unlike the ghastly white button-up shirt she wore to the day event - but can we please see some non-black tights?
