Thanks for the pictures Lyonnaise. Märtha Louise enjoyed a similar ride when she visited the old quarter of Hanoi on December 10, 1999.

Great pictures!

In the last set of Queen Sonja, she is wearing a tiara and necklace that I have not seen before. Is there any information on these two items? Are they new?

At any rate, they look very nice (so complimentary!) to the lovely evening gown by Queen Sonja, who is also sporting a fantastic smile in these pictures.

I love the tiara! Looks nothing like the typical tiara. Great choice!

The tiara called the modern topaz tiara was given to Sonja by Harald on her 60th birthday. I believe the set comprised the tiara, earrings and necklace.

Was there a reason given why the King and Queen were a bit ill during this trip? Was it a reaction to the climate, food or something else? Or in King Harald's case, was it something to do with his cancer?
