Mette Marit looks incredibly beautiful. I assume the dress is based on traditional Norwegian costume?

They could have added a tiara, if it is not appropriate to wear a tiara to celebrate 100 years without the Swedes I dont know when it is appropriate

Crown Princess Mette-Marit indeed looked wonderful! The hair creation is superb, and her whole appearance is just sparkling - amazing! Wonderful pictures, thanks to all who posted them!

Okay - I did not "hear" that... "Brödrafolkens väl", remember! So it should be, among all of our Scandinavian countries. :)

I think Mette Marit looks stunning yet again! I love the black fur boa and that's twice in recent engagements the Princess has worn fur. Very glamorous!

This is actually not a traditional Norwegian costume. In the pictures you are refering to she is wearing a dress from around 1905 (I don't think it is from 1905, but is a replica). They might have gotten inspiration from Queen Mauds dresses from that period.

But I found a picture of CP Mette-Marit in a traditional Norwegian costume at www.nrk.no

http://www.nrk.no/img/185516.jpeg


This is a picture of CP Mette-Marit in one variety of the national costume of Norway (its generally called bunad). This is a bunad from Hardanger, which she got in her wedding. She also have a bunad from Vest-Agder that she has had since she was young.

It is used for special occasions such as the national day, weddings, christenings and even as a galadress at the palace (that is for invited guests, very often ministers of government, their spouses and members of parliament).

All members of the royal family, apart from the King, have several bunad. There has been a discussion about wether the royal family should wear bunad or not. Because bunad represent regions and counties in Norway, and the royal family should represent the entire country. But Queen Maud started the tradition so I don't think the royal family will stop using it, and I think that most Norwegian think it's ok that they wear bunad form some regions/counties.

Hm, was clear, that such a comment would come from a Swede. The idea of an new union with Norway must be tempting for them...finally a crown princess with a hair style! :p :)

Yes, Mette Marit´s hair looked great. She looked stunning, every inch a Royal now.

Thanks to those, who have posted the pictures as well.

Mette-Marit has one from Rogaland, a Jelsa bunad, not one from Vest-Agder. Her mother comes from Rogaland.

For more information and pictures on the Norwegian Royals in bunads, the Norwegian national costume: Norwegian Royals In Bunads
