A hot candidate on the lists for many years now, Finland's former President Martti Ahtisaari wins the Nobel Peace Prize 2008! It was just announced in Oslo, some minutes ago (last year the current Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee does this, he is resigning because his party has lost support in the Storting and will be replaced for next year). The motivation reads:

Quote:
"for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts"
Full press release here.

Former Finnish president Martti Ahtisaari enters the Grand Hotel surrounded by the media after arriving Oslo, Norway Monday, Dec. 8, 2008. Ahtisaari is arriving for his Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, and said he hopes the honor will boost support for his own and his colleagues' continuing peace efforts.

As far as I can gather from the Royal house's official website (www.kongehuset.no), the programme is as following;

10.12.08
The King, the Queen and the CP couple will attend the official ceremony at 13:00 in the Town Hall, and The King and the Queen will attend the official dinner later that day.

11.12.08
The CP couple will attend the Nobel Concert.

(kongehuset.no - Official engagements)

According to GDP Papers' royalblog.nl, prince Friso of the Netherlands and princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau will also attend the ceremony. Apparently Mabel worked with mr.Ahtisaari in the past.

Mr. Ahtisaari was part of the Mafia? Just kidding
So at least Mabel could replace Mette Marit as worst dressed Royal at the Norwegian Nobel Ceremony
