That's true most monarchies have not been crowing their monarchs lately the only monarchy I can think of that still crowns their monarch is the United Kingdom. The king's enthronement would have been exciting if other royals were there.

The Dutch swearing in ceremony is attended by foreign royals, so at least that's one more

If there's one country I would like to see re-instate the coronation ceremony it would be Denmark. Being proclaimed from a balcony at Amalienborg just doesn't seem to me (a foreigner who is very familiar with the British system of succession events) all that fitting but of course I recognise it as part of their (the Danes) history.

I'm sure however that when Frederik becomes King that their shall be celebratory events after the mourning period (that's if Denmark has a mourning period?). Still, may that be some years away yet.

The last two proclamations took actually place from the balcony of Christiansborg. The only time i think it is ever used. King Christian X. was proclaimed from the balcony of Amalienborg but at that time the present Christiansborg was build.

Thanks to everyone who posted pictures, I've never seen this. I assumed all monarchies had a grand coronation ceremony.

So basically this ceremony went according to the new King and Queen's wishes because there was nothing for them to go by?
Does this mean when Hakon is "crowned" he and MM will plan how they want the ceremony to be performed??

Dresscode for formal day events

Princess Astrid and Princess Ragnhild also wore white dresses like Sonja and Märtha, so there were 4 beautiful white dresses seen that day. Anyone have pics of Astrid and Ragnhild?
The enthronement was a day affair. That means that civilians wear jacquet (morning coat) and military can opt for their uniform.

You can see the same situation every year in The Hague, on Prinsjesdag, which is a day-event as well. It has the same dresscode as during the Enthronement in Norway: uniform and/or jaquet. You see the Prince of Orange always wearing an uniform. His younger brother Prince Constantijn has never joined the military and therefore appears in jacquet.

Another rule is that sashes and breast stars are never worn in a combination with a civilian jacquet. Instead a bâton in the lapels show a minitaure of the Order. Ladies wearing long robes (and no diademes as it is a day event) can wear sashes. You can see it clearly on this picture.

It was meanly because Haakon was not yet 18 at the enthronement ceremony in Trondheim. It took place on 20. June 1991 and Haakonm turned 18 on 20. July 1991.

HRH The Crown Prince only joined the military in 1992, when he entered the Royal Norwegian Navy’s naval recruit training school on board the
KNM Harald Hårfagre at Madlamoen.

The Enthronement took place in June 1991, before any military activity by the Crown Prince.
So the Crown Prince was a civilian and had no any uniform to wear...

The ceremony in question was planned somewhat according to how Olav's ceremony had been - as there was a precedent. Olav's ceremony was mostly created from scratch - but in ways similar to the Coronation ceremony his parents had gone through in 1906.

When the time comes for Haakon and Mette-Marit, I presume that they can alter what they want altered, but at the same time will stick with the general ceremony-structure.

I think Stefan's response was directed towards the lack of orders on Haakon at the time. As he hadn't turned 18, the St. Olav order hadn't been awarded him.

The lack of uniform, is a very good point, though, Henri.

King Harald officially becomes King of Norway on January 21th 1991 after his father King Olav died. Here you can see the President of Stortinget announcing it.

Haakon is wearing glasses.
I guess that since then he has been wearing lenses.

I absolutely love Sonja's dress. It is very much inspired by late medieval dresses. It's wonderful!

I'm late to the answer, but yes, me too. I never liked bearded men so awfully much.

Is this how the Storting Chamber is normally arranged or was it rearranged for the occasion?
