Silly me I just discovered it four months later and it's worth reading. Thanks for the translation ROYAL NORWAY.

Well, on The Second Day of Christmas (Dec 26th), it was time for this year's broadcast, which was sent live on NRK1 (the state-owned Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation's and Norway's largest TV channel) from 19:45 to 21.00.

But let's first talk about the style of the programme. - So here are two posts from the ''CP Haakon as UNDP Ambassador'' thread (link), which I wrote in September and October:

And the CP-Couple's ''good period'' when it comes to how they are portrayed in the Norwegian media (which I wrote about in this post) seams to continue.
Because, as I've written in other threads, Haakon/MM's UN engagements are usually criticized by commentators as an interference in pollitics. - But this time, nothing at all!
Why? Well, although the CP-Couple's personal popularity has plummeted after the media started with a more critical coverage of them in 2013, the support for the institution of the monarchy has gone from strong to stronger. - And therefore, the television/newspaper commentators have probably found out that there is no point in continuing, at least not when it comes to stuff like this.

So, what happened?
1. The egalitarian Norwegian media didn't like it, so they started criticising them in 2013, which then lead to their personal popularity going down hill.
2. Haakon/MM responded with taking their children out of the public school in 2014, and opted to spend parts of their 2015 summer-holiday with some rich-people on their yacht, which of course only intensified the criticism.


But as I wrote in post 99, which both of you referred to, the support for the institution of the monarchy has (at the same time) gone from strong to stronger.
Why? Well, as I've written in other threads: Due to the King's enormous personal popularity, which (although always high) has gone through the roof since his 70th birthday in 2007 - and unpopular politicians.
The stuff in bold also led NRK to opt for a more balanced ''Året med kongefamilien (The year with The Royal Family)'' broadcast last year, when they replaced the pro-monarchy presenter/interviewer and Project-Manager, Nadia Hasnaoui, with their pro-monarchy - but more balanced Royal Correspondent, Kristi Marie Skrede, who together with her team made the criticism of both ''royal finances, CP MM's now 'famous' Marius-letter to the media and The Queen's art'' a part of the programme.

So, what with this year???? Hmm, they probably received a lot of complaints after the 2017-version, for now they're back with the most pro-monarchy royal-year-broadcast that I have seen since they started with it in 2003.
The programme, which was presented/directed by NRK's most pro-monarchy journalist/news-anchor, the 44-year-old Atle Bjurstrøm (who also presented the coverage of The King's 70th Birthday Celebrations in 2007 - and who intervived The CP-Couple on the day MM went public with her illness) looked back at the most significant royal moments of 2018, which included a joint interview with The King/Crown Prince (who talked about climate-change and sailing) and one with The Queen (who talked about art - and ''the need for a royal museum where the ''more than 400,000 royal items, which is now being kept at 5 storages on a secret location in Oslo, can be exhibited'').
(BTW: The media previously reported of 70.000 items being kept at 4 storages, but as you can see from The Queen's own numbers, that was heavily underestimated.)

And no, Marius, Märtha, royal finances or other controversies were not mentioned at all.

See the programme here: Året med kongefamilien 2018 - NRK.

Thank you ROYAL NORWAY for the information about Aret med kongefamilien and the links.
It was great to see a recap of the year as it included some events that I'd forgotten about, such as the Cambridge's visit to Norway. The family all seem very down to earth and approachable; Sonja has always been one of my favourite European queens. Looking forward into seeing what 2019 will bring for the NRF!
