I like how the foreign royals release regal portraits like this and on occasions like this. Something I wish the British royals would do.

I liked all the official photos, especially the photos with the King and Crown Prince and the group ohoto with the King, Crown Prince and Princess Ingrid-Alexandra.

It would have been nice to see some photos of the entire family, i.e. Princess Martha-Louise and family.

Congrats to King Harald on his anniversary

It shows the current and future of the NRF but for family unit it is missing Sverre-Magnus, and Martha-Louise (plus family)

I think its some great pictures of the King and Queen, and the Crown Prince Couple, with bonus picture of IA (love the three generation one)

All of these are lovely. Those of Mette-Marit are the most beautiful I've seen of her.

Those are great photos of the NRF. I agree, Mette-Marit looks rather beautiful in them! I think my favourite one of her is this one. Haakon still is incredibly handsome The three generations photo is very sweet also! I did a comparison with it from the previous ones here as I thought it would be nice.

I also wish the British royals would release official photos like these more often, but official photos don't seem to be their sort of thing. I've always thought that the Scandinavian royals were the best royals at sharing photos and anecdotes with the public anyway however.

Lovely portraits. Love the 3 generation one. I wish though they had included the entire family in at least 1, not just Sverre but ML and her kids.

The photos of the king and queen are the best of these. Queen Sonja looks by far the best at the photos. She looks natural, elegant, regal and just wonderful for a woman of her age.
Too much photos of Mette-Marit in different outfits, it is not her jubilee. And this photo looks like it is from some fashion photoshoot:

These are ordinary people who tell about their encounters with this beloved, warm, kind and caring couple who I am proud to call my King and Queen.
Photo album at the top of the article:
Folkets møter med kongeparet - Kongehuset - VG
Quote:
The People's meetings with the Royal Couple

"Common Norwegians" who meets King Harald and Queen Sonja tells about how pleasant and likeable they are.

On January 17, 1991 King Olav dies. The royal couple has been on the throne for 25 years.

Over the years they have traveled around the country. Many have met them and taken pictures.

it is odd that they released so many photos of MM. I wonder why?

Perhaps they released many more photos than were printed of all the family members. Perhaps the news organizations thought that pics of MM are more apt to "sell". These forums usually have more pictures of younger, chic-er royal woman than of older women, or men in general.

umm no?

If you go to the royal website you'll see that there are far more photos of MM than of any of the other royals. They didn't sell the photos to news orgs to release. They released them on their own website.
