I think it's extra evident next to King Harald. I mean, you wouldn't notice it the same way if she was standing just beside Sonja.

Thanks for the pictures!

During the welcoming of the Italian president and his wife I thought that Queen Sonja looked wonderful. The light blue jacket with the black belt and skirt and hat ... the Queen was a delight. Mette-Marit however looked like she was heading for a funeral. And the hat was dreadful, I thought.

But the Queen looked radiant in her red gala dress and Mette-Marit redeemed herself in my eyes in the bright pink gown. (Didn't I say yesterday that fuschia is always the way to my heart?!)

The Queens dress is not new, she has worn it many times, first time in Spain in 1995. (Good on her for fitting in to the same dress almost ten years later)
