I like Mette-Marit's dress. The skirt looks just as lovely now as it did in Iceland.

I do agree that Mette Marit needs some more color. But I think she needs it on her face in terms of makeup. Not a lot of makeup just a bit of blush and lipstick. Very natural but more distinct colors. Also, I would like her to do something with her hair. I think she should grow it out more. Then put it up in a bun or back in a sleek ponytail at the back of her neck, a Veronica Lake style curls etc. I also think she needs to wear more tailored clothes, and clothes that are better for her shape. She needs to work on her colors and avoid shinny fabrics unless she has more makeup on to balace her out. And please avoid those awful feather hats that look like dead birds attached to their heads. This goes for all the royal women I've seen them in!!!!

Now before everyone goes crazy, I'm not trying to be mean to Mette, but I think she could do so much better on official functions in the looks department. She has a lot of potential. I have seen her look good on several occasions, I just wish she was more consistant.

I'm not sure about Queen Sonja's dress being new .I think I've already seen it once . Does someone know if the Queen has already worn this dress before ?

I love the picture of the Princess, the Empress and Queen Sonja under the tent, notice that the Empress placed her hand on Mette-Marit's back. Lovely, caring gesture.

Haakons speech at the gala dinner, only in Norwegian
Quote:

H.K.H. KRONPRINSREGENTENS TALE GALLAMIDDAG PÅ DET KGL. SLOTT STATSBESØK FRA JAPAN 10. MAI



Deres Majesteter,

Deres Eksellenser,

Mine damer og herrer,



Det er en stor glede for oss i Kongefamilien å ønske det japanske keiserparet velkommen til Norge. Kongen kan dessverre ikke delta slik han hadde ønsket, men han har bedt meg overbringe de hjerteligste hilsener, og jeg kan forsikre dere alle om at han er i stadig bedring.



Det er ekstra gledelig at Deres Majesteter besøker Norge i 2005, året da Norge markerer at det er 100 siden unionsoppløsningen med Sverige og det året Japan og Norge feirer 100-årsjubileet for sine diplomatiske forbindelser. Japan var meget raskt ute med å anerkjenne Norge i 1905.



Selv om vi lever på hver vår side av kloden, er keiserfamilien og den norske kongefamilien knyttet sammen gjennom lang tids vennskap. Under mitt besøk i Tokyo i april gjorde Deres Majestets beretning om det første møte med Norge og Europa i anledning Dronning Elisabeths kroning, dypt inntrykk på meg. Som deltaker i De olympiske leker besøkte faren min Japan i 1964. De mange senere besøkene begge veier har bidratt til å bygge og bekrefte de gode relasjonene.



Fra norsk side husker vi med særlig glede statsbesøket til Japan i 2001. Kongen og Dronningen har fortalt meg hvilken enestående gjestfrihet de ble møtt med, og om de mange spennende sider ved Japan de ble presentert for. Selv har jeg besøkt Japan i forbindelse med De olympiske Leker i Nagano i 1998, og nå i forbindelse med den engasjerende og storslåtte verdensutstillingen i Aichi. Jeg er dypt takknemlig for den varmen jeg har blitt møtt med av Deres Majesteter og den keiserlige familien og den levende interesse Deres Majesteter viser for Norge.



Gjennom de siste 50 årene har vi sett en utvikling i det japanske øyriket som savner sidestykke i verdenshistorien. Japan har - på basis av sine menneskelige ressurser og sitt engasjement – utviklet seg til å bli verdens nest største økonomi. Dette har vært av stor betydning for uviklingen i Asia.



Samtidig ser vi at Japan i stadig større grad er blitt en viktig aktør på den internasjonale politiske arenaen. Japan og Norge har felles synspunkter på mange internasjonale spørsmål og har et nært samarbeid så vel bilateralt som i FN og andre multilaterale fora.



Nordmenn og japanere er sjøfarende folk, bosatt i fjell-riker med lange kyster omkring. Et norsk skip anløp Nagasaki havn så tidlig som i 1870, og allerede i 1905 var de økonomiske forbindelsene mellom våre to land betydelige, basert på skipsfart, hvalfangst og handel. Maritime næringer har fortsatt å prege samkvemmet mellom våre land gjennom de hundre år som er gått siden 1905, med skipsbygging og skipsfart som bærebjelker i våre økonomiske relasjoner. Moderne kommunikasjoner har også gjort at halvparten av all norsk eksport til Japan i dag er fersk sjømat. Under mitt nylige besøk i Japan fikk jeg oppleve at norsk laks og japansk matkultur er en vellykket, for ikke å si velsmakende, allianse.



Det kulturelle samarbeidet spiller også en viktig rolle i forholdet mellom landene våre. Japansk kultur, fra den klassiske til den uTRFamoderne, fra hagekunst til film og matkultur, blir beundret i Norge. Samtidig gleder vi nordmenn oss over den store japanske interessen for norsk kultur. Japanere har inngående kjennskap til Grieg, Munch og Ibsen. Samtidig er dere åpne for moderne kulturelle uttrykk, enten det dreier seg om billedkunst, kunsthåndverk eller musikk. Da jeg besøkte Japan i april, var det en glede å se hvilken interesse som møter norsk design, ikke minst møbeldesign. Den norske jazzuken ble også så vidt jeg forstår godt mottatt.



For den norske reiselivsnæringen er det gledelig at stadig flere japanere kommer hit for å oppleve ulike sider ved norsk natur og kultur. Økende kontakt og vennskap mellom enkeltmennesker gir også det beste grunnlaget for å videreføre og styrke de gode forbindelsene mellom Japan og Norge.



Dronningen, Kronprinsessen og jeg ser med stor forventning frem til å være vertskap for Deres Majesteter under statsbesøket til Norge. Jeg vil med dette utbringe en skål for Deres Majesteter og for forbindelsene mellom våre to land og folk

Lovely pictures from today, thanks to everyone who posted! I have one small request for pictures posting though - couldn't we all write what event and date the pics are from, so that when we in the future look at them, don't have to wonder what date and what the event was?

I am not too fond of Mette-Marit's hair color here, it washes her out her skin complexion.
