The bunad with the red waistcoat and white apron that she wore on Skaugum in 2003 is the Hardangerbunad.
You kan read a little bit about it on Husflidens webpages...

I'd say that it is only die hard bunad people who follow rule no.1 posted by Larzen. Most young women today choose not to use the head wear. I know I will never wear the head wear for my bunad. It is really ugly and unbecomming and I wouldn't be caught dead in it. I'd rather invest in a pair of ad-on-sleeves which belong to my bunad.

And one more thing, I think most people who have bunads don't follow all the rules anyway. I also have a silver belt on my bunad, which according to tradition only were for married women, but I got mine when I was 15 and I am still not married some 12 years later. All in all, traditions do change don't they??

So today we will see King Harald, Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon, Crown Princess Mette Marit, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, Prince Sverre Magnus and Marius. Norwegian fellows, do you see them on tv now?

Mette-Marit is wearing her red bunad...
Ingrid Alexandra is wearing her first bunad which matches her mommy's.
btw, why isn't Marius joining the school parade like last year?

awww, ingrid looked adorable in her bunad! the same for mette marit, i think it's great to see royals wearing their very own traditional costumes. i was curious to how many bunads may mette marit have, since some of you normally mention that she uses this or that bunad. do they have all of them (one for every region)? what about ingrid? is this the first time she wears one?

it's a pity she is no longer wearing the bunad for the balcony scene as sonja did last year. it would be a nice family photo of all of them wearing tha traditional costume.

Mette Marit doesn't look very enthusiastic on the balcony, don't you think? That sort of pained "My feet hurt" kind of look...

Little Ingrid Alexandra looks really cute!!I really adore her bunad!
Sverre Magnus has grown as well. Looks cute!

It looks like Mette-Marits feet is hurting. Right before His Majesty The Kings Guard played in front of the palace, you could see Mette-marit teking her shoes of. (On NRK)I was tired of standing there myself, so i belive that her feet hurt since she stood there longer + on skaugum earlier.

Thank you all for the pictures and news :).

And thank you Larzen for the explanation and rules around national costume - priceless.

Ingrid looks so grown up. And the pictures of her waving and smilling are heartmelting.

Marius behind the window - photographers do like to picture the boy that way. He will be a very hansome man.

Happy Day! :)
