When you say that she dressed for a state visit in jeans, I thought you meant that she greeted some president or prime minister in jeans. Like if Victoria of Sweden had greeted Harald, Sonja and Haakon in jeans.

Mette-Marit's arrival in Spain was a different matter altogether. What matters is that she dressed appropriately for the wedding.

Well, I think it's very inapproriately and very many in Norway thinks to, if one reads the news.

When you say that she dressed for a state visit in jeans, I thought you meant that she greeted some president or prime minister in jeans. Like if Victoria of Sweden had greeted Harald, Sonja and Haakon in jeans.
I'll see if I can find the picture when she greeted a forign minister in jeans. (I don't know how to post though...:o )

If she is going to be a Queen one day she must overcome fear of flying. And as a official person sha can't inhibate often. I'ts not good PR for her country. (The flying time Oslo-Stockholm are 45min. And I'ts not a very long way to go by train or car either). Mette-Merit knows how to be a diva!

I think I have to explaine that for me the five pregnant princesses are women who have married a Crown Prince and have got a title. They all looks pretty but the will not be head of state without their "husbands". Everyone, exept Mette-Marit, have good scools and appropriate background. I know that some folks in Spain don't find HRH Letizia of Spain "good enough" because she have been married before, but one can't denie she have a good and professional background.

My vote for the most fashionable maternity wardrobe goes to HRH Letizia of Spain.

My vote goes to Letizia. Whatever she wears, she still looks elegant.
She does not need to be in super designers' clothes to look elegant like some others (IMO).

So:

1- Letizia
2- Mathilde
3- Maxima and Mary
5- Mette

Actually, I believe she was criticized by the Norwegian press for dressing too casually for arrival. I personally think her attire was inappropriate for the event, she looked out of place standing on red carpet in jeans and a cardigan, especially next to Haakon who was wearing a formal suit.

Mary has many different styles of pregnancy dress and of course most of looks good..but she quiet often did mistake in mix-match them (its just my opinion) then the attire looks quiet awful. I prefer Maxima's as my first choice and Mathilda as a second.

Have you ever experienced a phobia? Phobias, whatever they may be for, flying, heights, spiders, closed spaces, or whatever, can be gripping and terrifying. It is not always something that is easy to overcome. Some people require medication or years and years of therapy to overcome their fears.

If Mette-Marit is as afraid of flying as she is, it wouldn't matter if she was in the air flying for 45 minutes or for 45 hours. It's not about the amount of time one is in the air. It's about being in the air. Period.

Was it the end of the world though that she wore dark jeans and a brown cardigan when she arrived in Spain? It's not as if she wore that outfit to the wedding.

Besides, isn't it better that she made that fashion guffaw upon arrival than the kinds of fashion guffaw Laurentien made at her husband's cousin's recent wedding?

Please find that picture. I'd like to see that picture too. I have been following Mette-Marit from the beginning and I would think that I would remember such a major gaffe as her greeting some foreign minister in a formal setting in jeans.

If you go to Forum Support and Feedback you can learn how to post pictures. I want to see this picture.

No need to be dramatic. I simply commented on the appropriateness of MM's attire upon arrival.

Both were inappropriate for each occasion.

KARISMA: It's inappropriate arriving to Spain in jeans, representating Norway. That's my opinion. And it's far away from the official protokoll was the opinion of the people of Norway.

Of course I understand that one must work very much to overcome a phobia. It's difficult! But she is a official and was awere of her dutys when she married Haakon. And MM have had lots and lots of training from professionals.

When visiting Sweden MM had a chanse going by the Royal ship, "Norway", together with "grandperents" Sonja and Harald. There are also possible for Haakon and MM going by train in their own Royal wagon in some ours between Oslo and Stockholm.

(This weekend MM was partying together with friends i Kristiansand, Norway. Today You can see headlins in one of Norways most read newspapers that MM inhibates her dutys - in Norway - and Haakon goes alone - again)! :(

Queen Margareta of Denmark once got the question: "What is the most importent character You must have beeing a Royal/Queen?" "Good helth and strong legs" - she answerd.

Back to the topic :p .... I adore Letizia and although I think she has looked beautiful and elegant in her maternity wear, my vote goes to Mary, her clothes really suit her and she always looks cool without looking to casual!
