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

They were taken on Magero on Sonja's 68th birthday.

A Dutch friend Marianne of the Glittering Royal Events MB has been on the look out for the past several months for the special commemorative wedding book for Haakon and Mette-Marit, "Det Kongelige Bryllup." book of the wedding -- but if you pass by it in the bookstore, definitely have a flip through. In addition to behind-the-scenes pictures of the wedding, there were also some pictures of Haakon and Mette-Marit growing up. Most of the ones of Haakon are familiar, but I hadn't seen the one below before.

I have scanned a few others in. As Marianne went through a lot of trouble to find this book for me and I spent a fair amount of money for her to help me buy it and ship it to me, I would greatly appreciate that they not be posted elsewhere. I have scanned them in for the purpose of TRF members, and have labelled them as such.

OK, I found it, the official visit to UK is from October 25-27, so far only King Harald and Queen Sonja is listed for this event. Its not anounced by the court yet, that usually happens one month before, it is only put as an event on the centenary program.

I dont know where to post this but it is a cute story I think

The Kings Guard regularly go to Edinburgh to take part in the military tattoo. When the Guard performed in a Zoo in 1963 one of the Guards thought they needed a maskot, therefor they adopted a Penguin. It is called Nils Olav, after the commandor of the troops in 1963 and King Olav. The Guard pays for the Penguin in the Zoo. Every year the Kings Guard visit Edinburgh his military rank is promoted. Today Nils Olav got promoted to honorary "oberst" (Im sorry I dont know the english word for the military title) After the promotion Nils Olav inspected the troops and he got a bronze statue of himself in the Zoo. In 2002 a total of 250 journalists was present and he made the cover of Times Magazine. As a symbol he has a badge on his wing. It has to be said that it is accually not the same penguin as in 1963 but as the old ones die the new Nils Olav gets to keep the military rank and name

Pictures from Nettavisen and facetoface
