As for the hair colour, NotHRH...as blondes get older, it gets harder to maintain the pigment in naturally blonde (turning white) hair.


The last sentence also applies to brunettes. The internet article I read this past week stated that gray hair is the most prevalent hair color in the world. HRH should just accept her natural hair color. A youthful look is not eternal (a la Princesse Caroline de Hanovre et Princesse Stephanie de Monaco- the aging process 'is' and continues perpetually. Efforts taken to look younger actually negate the intended effect.

NotHRH - I agree with your comments regarding grey hair. IMO it is a good job that it's the most prevalent colour. Some of us would dearly like to have hair like Mette-Marit's, or would like it to happen n o w instead of several years later.

Dislike the dress- too pale of a color.

Don't like the dress. It does nothing for her color or figure.

Apparently the couples were all switched up for the event as far as being escorted in.

This time,Mette Marit is a disapointment for me.She has has usually accustomed us to much better.Her choices were good but the pale colors did nothing for her.
Another negative point is her strange posture.

Thanks for the answer. He is a handsome mam. Kinda weird the way they switch partners. Must be a Euroopean thing.

I don't like the "white" or bleached shade of hair color she uses. Maybe a tad darker blonde would look more natural.

In Denmark, at least, it is customary to mix up the guest for big events like wedding dinners. The etiquete rule is, that only engaged couples are allowed to sit together. Married couples gets split. Just look at Queen Margrethe's 70th birthday party. All the couples were split up. I think it is a good way to get your guest to mingle.

Ive always liked that Valentino dress, its elegant and has a nice cut to it, unfortunately MM ruined it by messy hair IMO. Her hair could've been styled and put up, exactly what this dress needed IMO. A nice diamond cuff would've also looked great.

Her style changed in the ten years, since she is a crownprincess.

I think CP M-M & CP H 's story will go down in history as one of the most Romantic Royal Love Stories ever.

Both young ... before stylists, hair-dressers, make-up artists they saw in each other real beauty, and they chose each other above & beyond anything else = awesome!

Their country should be proud to have them as the future King & Queen;
with real love comes stability !!!

I love this dress, but the rest is not the best. (rhyme was not intentional)
Maybe not even the hairstyle is a problem but the color of hair, too yellow. Such a dress needs better accessories. Some nice diamonds....

In one pic taken in Monaco yesterday, her thin, bleached, needs-a-haircut hair requires the assistance of licensed professional cosmetologist. The services provided in any $12/haircut-and blow-dry salon could only enable a vast improvement in her looks.
I cannot extract the 'pretty' and 'too cute' appearance that many within this forum seem to see in her. She is pretty in her own way, but she is no great natural beauty, but she does give an impression of a very friendly, open and warm personality.
I agree - she always reminds me of an aging flower child from the sixties. I don't regularly follow the Scandanavian royal houses but it seems to me that most of their princesses could do with the services of a good hairdresser.

I've always liked this Valentino dress on MM. She looks lovely once again.

I love this look for MM. Very hippy chic and she pulls if off wonderfully. The hair and lack of big jewels is great, over done hair and jewels would definately been a distraction. Good job MM.
