Nobel Peace Prize 2015

The Norwegian Nobel Committee has decided that the Nobel Peace Prize for 2015 is to be awarded to the Tunisian

National Dialogue Quartet

for its decisive contribution to the building of a pluralistic democracy in Tunisia in the wake of the Jasmine Revolution of 2011.

The National Dialogue Quartet has comprised four key organizations in Tunisian civil society: the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT, Union Générale Tunisienne du Travail), the Tunisian Confederation of Industry, Trade and Handicrafts (UTICA, Union Tunisienne de l’Industrie, du Commerce et de l’Artisanat), the Tunisian Human Rights League (LTDH, La Ligue Tunisienne pour la Défense des Droits de l’Homme), and the Tunisian Order of Lawyers (Ordre National des Avocats de Tunisie). These organizations represent different sectors and values in Tunisian society: working life and welfare, principles of the rule of law and human rights. On this basis, the Quartet exercised its role as a mediator and driving force to advance peaceful democratic development in Tunisia with great moral authority. The Nobel Peace Prize for 2015 is awarded to this Quartet, not to the four individual organizations as such.

Loved Mette Marit's ensemble today, although I'm always a bit conflicted about that chain thingy around her hair. Does anyone else think that she looks to be a bit "distant"??? JMHO

I watched the video on youtube and I thought MM was very engaged especially at the end of the medal presentation when the girl was singing. MM was holding hands with the Prince and seemed to be enjoying the whole event. It was a lovely ceremony.
The headband? I didn't quite understand. Maybe I need to look at a closeup. Was it fabric or jewellery? Can't wait for the gowns and jewels in Sweden.

It was lovely event and everyone looked great and proud.
MM's headband was very disappointing, I never understand why she can't wear a hat or headpiece.

Haakon and Mette-Marit along the laureats appear at about 24:00!
Alas none of the royal children seem to be in attendance...

If it is true gold,which it well could be, it makes sense to me.
