Article from Aftenposten, in English, on the official visit.

And also a "slide show" from the same newspaper, but it's in Norwegian though...

Mette-Marit looked very elegant and pretty today (and the best is yet to come...I hope). If she makes an effort (and wears some colors) she's fantastic!

Does the Queen kiss all other monarchs, or is King Harald an exception being the monarch who is the closest relative to Her Majesty (second cousin if I am not mistaken)

All other Monarchs as far as I know. Not sure about Farah Pahlavi but she kisses all the others.

Wow that is huge. I thought she wasnt going to wear that tiara because of its associations with India. We need more pictures. I need to see a full look. I love her new hair cut. Much shorter.

Interesting.

So much for "she won't be Queen, she'll be Princess Consort." Not in a tiara made for a Durbar, she won't.

Re:

Finally she looks the wife of the Prince of Wales should look and how a future Queen should look. Perfect. I hope we see an official shot of her in the tiara - a perfect publicity portrait.

Yup, I quite agree with you, we are all looking at the future Queen Camilla, the mistress who became a queen. By the way, what does durbar stand for?!

I think she looks great...it's about time and good for her! Everyone is entitled to their own opinion though esp. when it's delivered in such a respectul manner
?
Do we have any more photos from the gala?

I, personally, don't like her. But...I think she looks nice! Not awesome, but nice! I, too, think that tiara fits with her. Good for her. Can't wait to see everyone else...

That is a stunning tiara. We need more pics. A full shot cause the car makes her look squished. She looks good from what I see but I need a full shot to judge completely. She definitly looks like a future queen. Its a wonderfull look.
