Thanks for the pictures everybody. I always like to see Mette-Marit in Norway's national costume/outift. It really is quite beautiful and makes me a bit sad that I am not Nordic to have one either.
It's a shame that Martha Louise no longer makes these balcony appearances as well. She always has such lovely outfits for these occasions, too.
Did Martha Louise, Ari and Maud Angelica perhaps participate in National Day events elsewhere in Norway?
Märtha Louise, Ari Behn and Maud Angelica were not celebrating in public. They celebrated somewhere unknown in private.
I love Mette-Marit's bunad. (Okay, mainly because it's from my area of the country, even if I have another version.) If you notice the silver hanging on her belt? That's a signifier that she's married. Unmarried woman just have black belts with only a silver buckle. (http://gfx.dagbladet.no/dinside/2001/05/16/mette250.jpg
