Oslo, May 17th 2001. It's not easy being three years old on May 17th. After hot dogs, ice cream, popcorn, buns, cream cake, waffles, chocolate cake and soda pop, young Herman was finished by 5 pm.

The royal children doesn't take part in the parade on a regular basis (that is, Marius might, since he technically isn't royal). CP Haakon and Princess Mrtha went once, and that was when they were Russ (Russ is part of the Norwegian High School graduation - they muck about from late April to 17 of May). Otherwise they are "stuck" on the balcony. I've heard somewhere that they stay on the balcony for 3 hours straight
