but... wasn´t mette marit ill? why she wasn't in the prizes but in the concert?

seems strange that every year something happens with norwegian royals in the nobel ceremony. the other year it was king harald who was ill and now mette marit...

TRF (trf) loves waathai! :)
she seems lovely... and she also has a really nice smile...

i also wanted to ask if martha louise was there in the ceremony in the past years... when was the last time she went to the ceremony?

Omgangssyke means just that, you have it one day, and then you are well the next day (or atleast much better), and when you have it you really want to stay with in metres of the bathroom

You have to agree that beeing diagnozed with cancer and having major cergery on desember 8th is good enough reason to not attend the nobel on the 10th . That was the first time the King missed the ceremony while he has been King. King Olav also missed the ceremony twice due to illness (He died in January 91 so I dont think he attended in 90).

The Queen has missed the ceremony both in 2000 and 2001 both times because of ceregery in her foot I belive.

Last year Märtha went to the ceremony was in 2001, She attende the Concert last year though

I think Maathai is a wonderful woman who has done so much for the invornoment, women, children and democracy in Africa, and I really loved her lecture, nice to see that the prize does not only go to men in suits over 60. Loved her African clothes also, she really stood out.

Great pictures pdas1201!

Mette-Marit's hair looks great, and her little black dress simple and elegant.

A link to more pictures, courtesy of Afterposten:

Great points above Larzen. I don't think anybody in the Norwegian royal family would miss this event on purpose or try to get out of it. It is not only a very important event (and the one rare occasion the Scandinavian monarchies of Norway and Sweden) make it onto North American news but it also seems like a fun event, from the gala dinner the Swedes held to this concert. Nobody stayed home because they had the sniffles; recovering from cancer and surgery are pretty big deals in any culture.

Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai, the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize, today reiterated her claim that the AIDS virus was a deliberately created biological agent.

"Some say that AIDS came from the monkeys, and I doubt that because we have been living with monkeys (since) time immemorial, others say it was a curse from God, but I say it cannot be that.

"Us black people are dying more than any other people in this planet," Ms Maathai told a press conference in Nairobi a day after winning the prize for her work in human rights and reversing deforestation across Africa.

"It's true that there are some people who create agents to wipe out other people. If there were no such people, we could have not have invaded Iraq," she said.

"We invaded Iraq because we believed that Saddam Hussein had made, or was in the process of creating agents of biological warfare," said Ms Maathai.

"In fact it (the HIV virus) is created by a scientist for biological warfare," she added. "
She claims she did not make those statements….

Part from USA Today article……

But she told The Associated Press that her comments about AIDS being created to destroy Africans were misquoted and taken out of context.

"I have not said what I'm quoted as saying," she said of claims that AIDS was created by scientists and loosed upon Africa by the West.

She reaffirmed her stand in a statement released by the Nobel Committee that said: "It is therefore critical for me to state that I neither say nor believe that the virus was developed by white people or white powers in order to destroy the African people. Such views are wicked and destructive."
"Many of us experience daily life becoming ever more hectic. This may be a good reason to stop a bit - and think about if what one spends time on is in fact how one really wants to spend it," Crown Prince Haakon of Norway
