Master is the correct title for a young boy. It's not a title just used for the gentry. Adults are Mr. Mrs. and children are Master and Miss. Although Miss continues on for an unmarried adult, Master becomes Mr. regardless of whether he's married or not. Since the '70s we've had Ms too. It is very rare to see 'Master' written nowadays, generally if a letter is addressed to a young boy it will just have his name. But in the past a young boy would have a letter addressed to him as "Master John Smith" Just like a young girl would be "Miss Jane Smith".

I think it's also very much a generational thing. I won't hesitate to call my grandmother's friends/older neighbours by "Mrs. So-and-So", because that's the way she refers to them in conversation - which ties in to the whole Mrs. Ferner-thing - but you realize how much the Norwegian society has changed in a generation, when the time came for Märtha Louise, and she didn't tack Mrs. Behn behind her princess title.

I like the new site. But it's a little bit sad, that there are so less pictures. It has more information than the old site. But in the section of Princess Ragnhild and Princess Astrid I had wished, that they would written down the birthdays of their children and grandchildren.

How wonderful is the video of the King and Ingrid?
That was really awesome to see him being so normal and happy.
Great updates of the site!

Video Page:
http://www.kongehuset.no/c81267/film...rukt_tid=81267

It's great to see the Norwegian Royals showing "their" castle.

The new frontpage of Kongehuset.no for children is great

King Harald seems like a very loving grandfather.

Some layout changes has been made on the NRF website. No big difference. The picture on the front is now the 3 generation photo.

Norwegian: http://www.kongehuset.no/
English: http://www.royalcourt.no/

I don't like it. It is a little bit strange, that you don't see the Queen on the main webside. And if I see good, than the webside hasn't got the CP-side anymore. It is so impenetrable for me.

I agree with you.
On their facebook/twitter page they say, they changed the appearance so that it's "easier to browse the sites from mobile and tablets. Photos and video are also readily available."
The CP Couple's page has probably gone for that reason...
