great pics

I was wondering: what is the colour of Alexandra's eyes? Blue or dark???

Mette Marit looks already very pregnant, when she is supposed to be 2 or 3 months pregnant only!

I think it was previously discussed that Ingrid Alexandra and Maud Angelica's clothing reflects the style of their respective mothers. Martha Louise has a flair for more colourful and even more eclectic outfit choices and her love of colour and whimsical clothing is reflected in Maud Angelica. While Mette-Marit's fashion sense leans more towards the classic and neutral tones, which is very much in line with the outfit chosen on this occasion.

Colourful outfits are of course more fun on little babies, but I think classically dressed babies are also adorable in their own sense.

Thanks marezdote for the answer about Marius. :)

And thanks Pdas1201 for the additional pictures! :)

I love classic baby wear. And when I would get one day a son, I would buy for him such a coat, which John John Kennedy wore at the funeral of his father.
But I would say Mette Marit and Haakon should vary the colour of her clothes a bit. It´s always pink in combination with white....sometimes a little bit red. There are also other nice colours out there...

From close up pics I have seen in the past I belive her eyes are dark. I agree about Mette-Marit looking quite pregnant. Maybe it is just how this outfit fits her.

Some bunads are cut in a way that the user almost always looks pregnant, whether being it or not. So, judging it in those outfits may not always be the most presise

The day is over, and my feet hurt.

The reason why some bunads are cut like that is because they are mostly modelled after the clothes worn by farmers in the 17-18 century, and in those days women often were pregnant non-stop (at least for a period of there lives), so the bunad is fashioned to accommodate that. Leaving it as you said to make women wearing bunads today look pregnant even if they aren't. The bunads cut comes in handy today too, because bunads are often worn in events where you are expected to eat a lot of good food (i.e. weddings, christenings, 17 of May, confirmations). And that you can do when it has a high waistline (even though most women finds their bunad a bit too snug)

Was it last night that Mette-Marit was travelling to Sweden, or is it another time?

It was cancelled after the pregnancy became known. She's cancelled some things since then, because of morning sickness, by orders of her doctors.

I will concur that bunads makes you look pregnant\fat. Imagine the thickest wool fabrik and then make pleats around the middel of your waiste, then add a underskirt and a thick belt. It aint slimming to say the least... I like Mette-Marits new bunad even if it is not the most colourful one. When it is warmer she can wear it without the jacket and there is a beautiful embroydert shawl that you can wear. There are several bunads from Vest Agder so I add a pic of Mette-Marits and links to see closup of the details and accessories. There is also an outragous head thing which I wonder if she will wear sometime. The bunad police will surly love her is she does as noone rarely wears them anylonger...

The back

The pocket

Later on national day Haakon also wore a "bunad" or I suspect it is the Oslo suit which is not a real bunad. The man next to him is the Mayor of Oslo wearing the same thing
