Question

Dazzling, I can't understand why you closed the previous thread at this time of the year and while there was a discussion going on??!!..You could have closed it at the end of the year and start this new thread in 2009. Thanks anyway.

Dalia, ALL current threads at TRF are closed after reaching 10 pages.
Mette Marit's current events thread reached 10 pages. That was the only reason why a new thread was started.
The discussion that was started in the previous thread can of course be continued in the new thread.

Their cabin is very charming! Mette-Marit looks very nice and quite healthy in the photo. I am glad to hear that she has recovered.

Thanks for the link I haven't seen Marius out and about in ages! I'm sorry but could any Norweigen members translate the article. Where were the pics taken?

it is not said in the article why did they went to church together. maybe CP just met the minister there.

I like the way CP Mette-Marit look with her children - with Marius she behaves as a proud and serious mother while with other two very caring and tender

This is a very nice photo! Were they in church, or in a governmental building?

i'm surprised mette marit didn't attend this meeting since it seems all HIV related princesses are in attendance. she is also an UNAIDS representative.

Thank you, sofajr. The building was so pretty, and there was no mention of it in the article. I really liked this photo.

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.
