4 days ago King Harald, Mette-Marit (both behind the trees), Haakon, Ingrid Alexandra and Sverre Magnus have been spotted in Lund (Kristiansand).
The King and Mette-Marit attended an event in Kristiansand in the evening.

A great event coming:
Princess Märtha Louise, CP Haakon and CP Mette-Marit will participate in the "50. Ridderrenn" in Beitostølen on April 13, 2013. Up to 500 disabled people from 15 nations are participating in the skiing race, of which Princess Märtha Louise is patron of.
CP Haakon will be a companion for one of the participants, who runs 20 kilometers, while CP Mette-Marit and Princess Märtha Louise will be companions in the 5-kilometer course.

You can read more about it here Oppland - Kongelige ledsagere i det 50. Ridderrenn

Queen Sonja has participated in the race several times, and also King Olav.

Today, King Harald hosted a reception at the Royal Palace for recipients of the King's Medal of Merit, which CP Mette-Marit attended as well.

No photos unfortunately, but an article where one of the recipients talks about it.

No it will not. Every year the political party SV put forward a motion to have the monarchy dissolved. Every year they are out voted in the Parliament! The new thing this year was that they had some people from other parties agreeing with them and a new motion was put forward. This one a little different as the motion wanted action to be taken to figure out what kind of republic Norway is to have if one day the monarchy is no more. This motion was also by the large majority of the parliament out voted. So there will be no motion to dissolve the monarchy or finding out which republic formula (example as the US or Finland/Iceland) is suited best for Norway.

The royal family, royal house and institution have much respect from both the people and the parliament and government. Big political changes will be needed for this to change. We have a loved King who does a remarkable job. The Crown Prince is believed to keep up the good work and evolve the monarchy in modern times. Overall the family is much loved and respected.

Of course there will always be people who want the monarchy dissolved because they feel a head of state should always be elected in a democracy. But they are nowhere near being a majority. Most of these have no personal disregard or ill will towards the members of the royal family. Others have little respect for them. But mostly people who want a republic have a problem with the hereditary system. The core and most important issue is that they wnat to elect the head of state in free elections. They feel it is too important an potition and one that should not be hereditary, but solely chosen by the people.

Thanks for this explanation!! I wasn't sure, how is now the situation with the royals and the norwegian people, sometimes you can read very critical opinions about the CP-couple and I thought maybe they won't get the chance to be the next King and Queen of Norway...

In the last years it was only King (and Queen) who were present, so a bit of a surprise that CP Mette-Marit joined him this week.
Last time the younger generation took part in these receptions was in 2004/2005 (according to image archive), when CP Haakon was regent due to King Harald's illness.

They updated the press release about the photosession with the CP Family. I'm looking forward to seeing the family together

Love the press release, very practical:
"Please note that times may vary depending on the finish, etc. and ask for understanding. It is not necessary for the press to ski - you can walk to where the shooting will take place, but winter boots and thick socks are recommended."

Here is a plan for the day (from this press release http://www.kongehuset.no/artikkel.ht...647&sek=112472).
