Oh my gosh -- the rain! Larzen, have you seen on video whether they just went into the palace or did they have to stand there and get soaked? The Emperor and Empress are not young -- I hate to think of them staying around in wet clothes for long!

oh my god its rain in Oslo but the HM Queen of Norway and Crown Merit-Marit of Norway and Empress under the tent would be good idea to protect the woman.

Wow that rain is incredible! I really like Mette-Marit's suit. I'm on the fence about the flower in her hair.

Pics from the Gala.
Aftenposten

IMO, Mette Marit looks absolutely gorgeous, this time I can't think of one thing that's wrong with her ensemble.

Great pictures everyone, thanks so much for posting! What a rainy day it was in Oslo, it seemed like it was really raining 'cats and dogs', I hope the umbrellas saved the royals from getting wet. Lovely outift for Mette-Marit at the welcoming ceremony, the headpiece is however doubtful as many of you have already pointed out. Can anyone identify the orders or medals exchanged, I saw Mette-Marit receiving one in one of the pics?

I must say I'm not a big fan of Mette-Marit's choice of evening wear for the gala dinner... She looks so covered somehow, and she looks really pale. And who is that woman in that blue "ruffle style" dress with that white lace (?) thing on her upper body? Terrible one... But a nice evening it seems, I love Queen Sonja's emeral tiara - she always looks good in that one!

Does anyone else besides me think that Princess Astrid's choice of dress for the gala looks like a nightgown?

From Torkel at the SRMB:

Crown Prince Haakon has received the Grand Cross of the Crysanthemum Order (Japan's highest decoration) and Crown Princess Mette-Marit has received the Grand Cross of the Orderof the Precious Crown (the highest decoration conferred on ladies who are not Heads of state).

Firstly the most important: thanks to all for posting pictures!:)

Hmm...hmm...Mette Marit´s dress looks like a copy of princess Madeleine´s nobel dress 2003...like a very bad copy. As GrandDuchess said, she hasn´t the (natural) skin and hair colour to wear such a colour.
And queen Sonja´s dress: in the thumbnail, I liked it. But after a closer look, I wonder if it´s out of a ballet called "the little salmon"

I think Mette-Marits dress is ok, but she really need some more colour, she is pale and blond, the dress is white and then diamond jewellery. I thought she looked lovely in the pink suit though

The Empress looks so elegant and refined, not a fan of Queen Sonjas dress. Looks like they are all trying to go for very (to) conservative looks for this gala.

the woman with the blue dress with lace in the new head of the information department Astrid Versto, she is wearing a court dress that was designed years ago, they should make some new ones that area a little more flattering, she is really a thin woman but the dress makes her look rather plump

I'm not a very big fan of her outfit but I like her hair and tiara. The tiara is much better than the headband IMO

I agree about the comments on Mette-Marit's evening wear on this occasion -- far too pale for her complexion. I would also add that the style of the dress is too matronly for her, too.

The gown also looks familiar -- has she worn it on another occasion before? For some reason I was thinking that she wore it on her Icelandic trip? Or perhaps I am mixing it up, with as Lena pointed out, with a similar dress Madeleine has?
