I have to say that I have most definitely changed my mind about Crown Princess Mette-Marit over the years. I thought it was just flat-out wrong to choose this young woman as a bride. Now I see that she works so well within the family and in a tough, tough job. I'm glad to see that she is getting recognition for her work.

What is so tough about this job? The pay is outstanding, plenty of time off, lots of parties and festivities. In addition, all the truly difficult work (arranging trips, coordinating events - espescially internationally, research) is done for her. All she has to do is show up and look pretty and many times she can't even do that.

What I consider tough about it is the endless snark, the complete lack of privacy in a tiny country, the endless staring at the tummy to see if the reproductive organs are still intact.

And that fact that she really had no prep for this kind of life prior to moving in with the Crown Prince, and has (with fewer-than-usual bobbles) has performed the tasks at hand. You hear about the Princess school for other Crown Princesses, but I think hers was a bit more slowly paced.

The fact that she is going back to college now takes a bit of guts, since she has a rather limited educational background.

I look at pictures of her and she varies from radiant to tired; I think she's the type of face that either looks terrific or plain, so it doesn't bark me that she doesn't look 100% perfect every step of the way. We can't all be Crown Princess Mary.

She seems to have blended into the Royal family; they have accepted her, her child by a former relationship, and the entire situation. You'd think that there would be some level of resistance within the group of people most close to her, but something about her, the person herself, has encouraged a contented situation.

She pulled it together.

And trust me, I thought she was completely without merit when the Crown Prince first introduced her.

I really like the idea of MM working with immigrant women. She seems to have such a warm, caring personality. This sounds like a great program.

I love this princess but she should have really watched how she sat in this dress. with this dress you shouldn't really cross your legs but keep them both down.

I love the earrings Crown Princess Mette-Marit is wearing but I agree about the dress. There is a picture in the side2 article which is definately less than flattering

That's true. If you wouldn't say it probably I would never look at it.
But she has nice legs. An we see only legs.

Why black??? Only black. Does she know nothing other color? This was a fashion-show, and she has so boring and ugly dress. I can't understand it. She is now crownprincess, she has money... Or maybe hasn't? She shouldn't wear designerclothes, but she could wear better and more colorful clothes. She is such a beautiful woman, I think she is interesting and clever. But not fashionable.

You will find another unflattering picture of CP Mette-Marit. In the future, she will be careful on the way to sit and will choose longer skirt.

You put it so nicely. When you can see underwear and that much thigh on anyone much less a CP it is very bad.

I loved the earring but hated the dress. She definitely should be more careful when picking her outfit next time.

Cool

Mette-Marit's shoes are another hit with me. I'm disappointed at her choice of such dark colors in winter, she can wear bright ones and get away with it. I had to laugh at the pictures of Mette-Marit showing a little too much thigh. I was at a function over the holidays and had to wear a nice dress, well, at one point my sister leaned over and reminded I was in a dress and not my jeans! Oops! Not going to live that down.

while i do agree she needs to be more careful, i think it's nothing terrible. those things happen. it's not like we see her underwear, just a bit too much of her tights. she looked lovely though. i love the earrings and the lovely shoes!
