does anybody know anything about the visit that Haakon and Mette-Marit may or may not pay to the US? I can't find anything about it. Now that she's pregnant they may not come, but in case they do, I'd like to be prepared. All I know is they are supposed to come to the midwest?

I think that it may be postponed. Mette-Marit won't be making the flight across the Atlantic at least, I'm fairly certain.

well, if it was planned for soon they could probably go. maxima went to kenia and uganda being pregnant and so did mary (thailand) and letizia (japan) in their very first months of pregnancy so if it was planned for soon they will probably go... idon't think there will be any problem with mm's pregnancy.

Yes, just imagine all the crazy/ugly hats we`ll get to see , and I wonder what Pia Haraldsen will delight us with

The USA visit was AFAI can remember planned for end of October beginning of November, she cant make a trans-atlantic plane trip and a 10-14 days trip at that stage in her pregnancy

She has also been to Poland at about the same pregnancy stage as Letizia (Japan) and mary (Thailand\japan)

It really depends on the woman and the pregnancy as each pregnancy is different for the same woman.

Mary, Maxima and Letizia travelled to other nations in the early stages of their pregnancy (and in Maxima's case, mid-pregnancy, too), but that doesn't mean it's the standard for pregnant women.

In Mette-Marit's case travelling might not be recommended for her for several reasons, including the fact that her second pregnancy had to be announced early because she was suffering from severe morning sickness. Also, given Mette-Marit's fear of flying (which may or may not be completely treated), while pregnant her fear may have returned or her anxiety over flying increased.

Mette-Marit and the royal court should ultimately let the Crown Princess decide if she feels she can go and not make her go just because other princesses have travelled early in their pregnancy. The health of Mette-Marit and the baby is ultimately what's most important.

The plane companies also advise against pregnant women flying if it is closer than 4 weeks to due date, but that is only if it is less than 4 hours on the plane. So, it is unsure if we'll see Mette-Marit on the State visit to UK, or Denmark.

There's a state visit to Denmark in the beginning of November. The one to UK is also this fall.

Frederik is already one of Ingrid Alexandra's godparents.

The Palace is now open to the public and tourists, and the royal family is on summervacation until the beginning of August.

King Harald and his crew onboard the «Fram XV» shall take part in the INS-clas in the European championships ins Stockholm from June 27th yo July 7th. The King will not take part in the Copa del Rey in Mallorca this year, he will wait until next year when he got his new boat (and a decent chance to beat the Spanish King )

During the summer there will be three birthdays, Sonja will be 68 on july 4th Haakon will be 32 on july 20th and Mette-Marit also turns 32 this year on August 19th. The tradition is to celbrate the Queen and Haakon on the royal familys summerhouse Mågerø, and that Märtha Louise will take the trip across the fjord with her family. VG also says that the royal family will take some vacation weeks abroad, but the palace will not say where

The King and Queen will have soem official engagements during the vacation

July 16 The Queen will visit Åndalsnes to reciev her Prize "the mountain goat" VG speculates that she might take some days hiking in the mountain after that.

July 30 the King and Queen will see the outdoor theatre about Olav the Holy (I dont think that was the best translation) on Stiklestad

July 31 the King and Queen will open the Olavs festival in Trondheim

August 5th The King will again preside statecouncil (no statecouncil during the vacation)

August 12 Haakon will take part in a peace seminar in Moss

First trip abroad for The King and Queen is to Sweden on an official visit to King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia on sept 1. Haakon and Mette-Marit is also invited. They will stay on the Royal Yacht Norge

There will also be official visits to Denmark and Britain in the autumn
