Just for the record, King Harald is the godfather of Prince Joachim (and Prince Friso of the NL) so it would not be to suprising to see Joachim there IMO, but its no use speculating until we some confirmations.

Well since Harald is also the godfather of Friso, I definitely would like him and Mabel to be there. Mabel at a gala, that would be interesting! Not very likely to happen, btw.

Because Friso and Mabel are no longer members of the royal house anymore. It would lift more than one eyebrow if they would officially represent the Netherlands at such a party, I think. But on the other hand, what if they're invited? One never knows!

Hue birthday party planned for King Harald's 70th

Quote:
The monarch's 70th birthday is February 21, and the day will start with a special service at Oslo's Trinity Church.
Later in the day, the king and his family will appear at a special arrangement in the park surrounding the Royal Palace in Oslo. Palace officials aren't revealing what will take place in the park, saying it will be a surprise, also for the king.
The day will end with a special dinner party for King Harald hosted by the government inside the landmark Akershus Fortress

More partying will follow on the weekend, and all the heads of state from the Nordic countries will be invited, along with European royalty.
The birthday celebrations will culminate in a ball at the Royal Palace on Saturday February 24. The official guest list hasn't been revealed yet.

Cool

Constantine and Anne-Marie will be there I'm sure as well as Pavlos and Marie-Chantal and perhaps the rest of the Greek Royal family. I'm sure the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg will attend. Charles and Camilla could attend or Prince Andrew as he did in Thailand. I hope we have lots of glitter and pictures!!

I can't wait for this event- It looks to be a great chance to see so many wonderful royals in all their finery!

I wonder if the Princess of Asturias will attend?

It's nice to see that all 3 Dutch Couples will attend! I wonder if we will see Princess Mabel with a Tiara.

Six (maybe seven) royals from the Netherlands

We only know this news from a royalty-watcher in the daily program Boulevard (Peter van der Vorst). There are already people speculating on diademes, but there is no any confirmation at all... so, let us not become too overenthusiastic.

But Peter van der Vorst has strong cards to play on these six, because the three couples have a link with the Norwegian royal family:

HRH The Prince of Orange
HRH Princess Máxima
Princess Máxima is a godmother to Prince Sverre Magnus

HRH Prince Friso
HRH Princess Mabel
The King of Norway is a godfather to Prince Friso

HRH Prince Constantijn
HRH Princess Laurentien
Princess Laurentien is a godmother to Leah Isidora Behn

If (if...) all these six go to Norway indeed, I expect Queen Beatrix to join the party as well. I can not imagine her remaining in The Hague while the gotha assembles together.

Godchild / guests of honour at wedding

Prince Friso is a godchild of the King. And remember that The King and Queen were the guests of honour at his wedding with Mabel. His attendance is the most logical.

By the way, royals do not 'represent' the State of the Netherlands. There is no request from the Government to represent the country. For this noble duty there is an excellent working diplomatic service with embassies and consulates all over the world.

Actually Laurentien is a godmother to Leah Isadora, not Ingrid Alexandra. But there certainly seems to be a closeness between the Norwegian Royals and the Dutch Royals. Not only are there the relationships you mentioned, but Haakon is a godfather to Countess Eloise, and in May of last year, both Norwegian couples visited Constantijn and Laurentien around there fifth anniversary.

You are right, I have corrected my post (Leah Isidora).

Indeed the bond is very close. Princess Märtha Louise actually has lived in the Netherlands (too bad no romance followed with an Orange-Nassau prince) and there are the regular visits for trips on the Queen's private sailyacht and holidays on the Crown Domains in the east of the Netherlands (like Naruhito, Masako and Aiko enjoyed, last summer).

More confirmations from Roger at the SRMB who has often very good information on the swedish royals

He says he knows the following is attending from Sweden

Queen Silvia
Crown Princess Victoria
Princess Madeleine

And that he is "pretty sure" The King will attend as well

Carl Philip will not come as he is abroad (but who cares about him as he will not wear a tiara or a dress, he will become interesting when he gets engaged )

totally...

i really can't wait until these celebrations. i read in aftenposten that it's going to congregate even more royals than for the royal wedding of haakon and mette marit. how excting! 2007 starts wonderfully for us!

it's a shame though that some european princesses will be very pregnant by then (maxima, mary and letizia) and may not go. i'm glad maxima's attendance was confirmed already though. now we only need to keep our fingers crossed for letizia and mary.
