That hat MM wore...NOT a good idea. It makes her look like some evil entity from a distant universe, especially as the pictures were shot from a low camera angle. With her face lurking in the deep shadows of that purple monster, I really expected her to breathe heavily and say something like '"I am your father, luke".

I don't see the problem with MM's hat. Sure it is big, and might been better suited to an occasion like a summer wedding or something, but I really like it! :)


Edited to say: after looking at the pics again, I still love the hat but not the way MM wears it.

Thank you everyone for the many wonderful pictures! :)

Ingrid Alexandra looks super adorable in her mini-bunad! I love the coloured stockings and the little buckle shoes!

I have a question about the logistics of the day: Where are the King and Queen while Haakon and Mette-Marit with their family are posing in the traditional costume?

And did the King and Queen pose in the traditional costume at all today?

Theese pictures are not taken at the Palace they are taken at Skaugum early in the morning, according to the press Marius was looking out the window to see if the parade was comming. Then he stood on the stairs until his class walked by and he joined them for the rest of the parade.
Thanks Larzen for clearing it up for me. For some reason I am really attached to this little boy and don't like to think about him feeling left out of anything. I know his mom and HM make him feel important and part of the entire family, I just worry about the royal family part. Did anyone notice how much he held IA hand, you can tell they are very close. I bet he makes a great big brother to both of the little kids.

Thanks for the pictures everyone.

I like Mette-Marits hat it's a lovely colour it's just too big it engulfed her head.

I know it's been said before but I have to say it again those kids are adorable. :)

Happy national day to everyone in Norway. :)

The family looks very nice. Norwegian traditional costumes are beautiful. I especially liked Marius but Ingrid was adorable too.:) In one of the pictures little Sverre had something red in his mouth. Was it a pacifier?

Hi :)!

It's not a pacifier. It is a ribbon that men use in their jackets.

mtbcm :)

Women also use them, just not on their bunad.

You can see that Mette-Marit has tried but the hat just casts too much of a shadow on her face. Maybe she likes it that her face is not on show.

The family look lovely, it is great that they celebrate in such a traditonal way.

Thank you KikkiB for clarifying that. As you can see, despite all Larzen clarifications I am still feeling a litle lost:o . It is so nice to have members on the forum that can bring knowledge about the countries' costumes and traditions.

It is a very sweet detail from Crown Princes to put the band on the baby. It's never too early to start :).

Regards,

mtbcm :)

Ingrid is a very cute little girl and is so adorable in her bunad.
Magnus is the sweetest little guy I just wanna hold him and say: golli golli (haha) :o
Marius is soon going to be a heartbreaker.. If i only was 10years younger

I think it was a great day and sure I enjoyed it with my adorable twins and the rest of my family!
