You know, they're really sweet, those two.)
I don't think they were locked in a passionate kiss. I think they were giving each other a kiss on each cheek.

Yeah, they were all kissing each others' cheeks - but why? As a greeting? That would have been strange, given the fact that MM and Haakoon arrived together. Strange.

Thank you again LaMinka, Cecca, and Larzen for the wonderful pictures. I haven't seen this many pictures of the state visit anywhere else. Mette-Marit was gorgeous throughout the entire tour.

I would like to take this chance to say "thank you" to everyone who posted pictures of this visit.

I have enjoyed seeing the Norwegian Royals with my own Royal family.

Kinda sad it is all over now, but at least Mette-Marit can get home and put her feet up.

All I can hope for is one day in the future the Danish Royal family will come to the UK, I would love to see Mary and Frederik like I have Mette-Marit and Haakon this week.

BTW, was Princess Ingrid in the UK or did she stay back in Norway?

I see Queen Elizabeth II and Queen Sonja wearing their outfits of the same color, it seems like turquoise blue. And in the gala dinner, they used white dresses. Is it coincidence, or a "diplomatic rule" to match the colors?

Re:

It used to be that guests recieved a card with the colours HM would be wearing so that they could avoid them much to the horror of several guests who had only packed clothes of a certain colour and then discovered the Queen was also only wearing that colour for their stay.

They must have relaxed the rule.

I was amused at the placement of the number two in this photo. Even the TV station realized it was their second child together!

i read all posts looks FAB!

M-M looks greats and her outfits looks very fab! and also greens,pinks she very pregnant Princess but let her easily on trips they wont getting water broke on trips like that!

the two Queens have two blue outfits and both looks greats and hats looks different and HM Queen Elizabeth II and HM Sonja both been good friends i know both good friend with the Queens and late HM Queen Mother been good friend with late King Olav for long time.

but i dont like Camilla,Duchess of Cornwall's tiara looks so huge! and her outfits looks sucks like black dress not my styles!
