The famout I.M. Pei is the architect for the Mudam Museum. He is the one that designed the Pyramids du Louvre in Paris. Here's pictures of him & some of the museum (from Polfoto)

It's nice to know that the reason she stayed back is not that someone is sick or something. She has really had a hectic month with the Spanish state visit, the Thailand trip, and the Crowning journey, so it's probably nice for her to have a break and stay home for awhile.

We don't know the reason why Mette-Marit stayed behind. She could be sick or one of her kids could be sick.

Besides, nothing states that couples must go to every event together. I'm sure that Haakon would've liked to share these two days with his wife, but I'm sure that he is doing fine on his own, too.

There have been many occasions in the past where only one half of a couple, kings and queens and crown princes and crown princesses alike, goes to a formal event. For example, only Queen Sofia went to the Thailand celebrations and only Mary and Henrik went to the Swedish celebrations. Juan Carlos, Frederik and Margrethe had their reasons for staying behind then just as I'm sure Mette-Marit has a reason for staying behind now.

Mette-Marit is still breast feeding and too much travel is not recommended. She and the baby have had an very busy month and staying home is probably wise. The GD couple have five children - they most certainly will understand and support her.

Thanks for helping to answer my question Lindy!


Hmm...I don't particularly like MT's outfit today, but I love Mary's outfit.

Thanks to everyone who is posting news and pictures.:)
