the statue of queen maud is a nice one. loved that they did it taking into account the "figure" she had when posing for portraits (after all that's the only way we have to know how they looked like!). anyone knows who designed and where it is now located?

the colours both queens wore are great colours. they really flatter them. queen elizabeth's hat is as regal and elegant as usual (no one better than the british royals for hats) and sonja's is original and looks great on her. not my favourite outfit for mette marit: i definetely think she looks better in soft, pastel and bright colours rather than this darker ones where she seems to get lost.

I must say that I'm rather awed by admiration for Crown Princess Mette-Marit at the Guildhall banquet, she looked drop dead gorgeous and fabulous to be honest! Further comments are unnecessary.

The same goes for the Duchess of Gloucester, she's such an amazing lady and also looked spectacular! But I'm also one of those who wonder why she wears miniature medals with gala dresses as she tends to do, for me those medals best fits with uniform. It doesn't bother me that much, I just find it peculiar. It has sort of become "her thing" now.

A big thanks to everyone for all the pictures!

I am sure that Mette Marit will make a beautiful and glittering queen in the future like Queen Silvia of Sweden for example!!

I do not agree on what the reporter has to say about Mette-Marits clothes. I think all her outfits looks fantastic!!

I agree with both of you. She look ultra fabulous during this whole visit, probably the best from all the royal ladies. Very feminime, and looks really suitable with her pregnancy..

A selction from colourpress of the unveiling of the staute, the original staue is made in stone and is outside the palace in Oslo, this is a bronze copy, I like it very much.

I dont like any of the Norwegian hats, Queen Sonjas looks like and UFO and Mette-Marits like giftwrapped bucket, I love her earrings with diamond and sapphire forget-me-nots. Queen Elizabeth looks like her elegant self.
