what a strange something on her head
The coat looks like it does not fit her very well. In every picture she looked like she could either use a different undergarment or an adjustement of the hooks. The colour was beautiful and suits her well. The thing on the head!!!!! I wonder what kept it in place..

She wore it first for the arrival in London for the official visit to this country 3 years ago.

No, it's not the same. It's just pretty similar.
The coat she wore today is new.

The dress the Queen wears tonight is... new!

The queen looks so beautiful tonight. Lovely new dress!

As for the actual prize presentation I thought the entire royal family looked great. I loved the King's tie. It reminded me of a candy cane. Great color on Mette-Marit.

I think I said this last year but I'm going to say it again. I prefer the actual Nobel Peace Prize presentation over the Nobel prizes done in Sweden. I find the dresses of the royal Swedish ladies and the feel of their Nobel night to be too much like a Hollywood award show.

No, they never go.

Usually the Royal Couple didn't attend either, but 2 years ago Queen Sofia of Spain was invited to attend the gala in the night... and so the Norwegian King and Queen were invited , too.. becasue it would have been a little weird to invite a foreign Queen, but ask your own Royal couple to stay at home.
Since then the King and Queen started to attend annually.. seems to turn into a new tradition.

This has probably been answered before, but are their two events one in Norway and Sweeden or are the attended by both families?

There are two seperate events:
The Nobel Peace Prize
is handed out in Norway's capital Oslo. The Norwegian Royal Family is presented annually.
The Nobel Prizes (for Literature, Medicine and so on) are handed out in Sweden's capital Stockholm. The Swedish Royal Family is attending annually.
Both ceremonies take place at the same day: December 10th every year.
