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

Oberst= Colonel

What a nice story, Larzen. I've met the penguins at Edinburgh Zoo, though, I never saw any rank :)

News on the USA Visit

A press release from the Royal Court today tells that King Harald and Queen Sonja will pay a visit to Washington D.C. from 16 to 20 September, Princess Ragnhild Mrs Lorentzen and husband Erling Lorentzen, and Princesss Astrid Mrs Ferner and husband Johan Martin Ferner will also participate during the whole visit.

King Harald will unveil a statue of his mother, Crown Princess Märtha, outside the Norwegian Ambassador’s residence. He will also pay a visit to Washington Navy Yard where President Roosevelt delivered the submarine hunter KNM “King Haakon VII” to Crown Princess Märtha on 16 September 1942. Queen Sonja will hold lecture about her experiences of Norway as a travel destination at the Smithsonian Institute.

The visit will be ended with a seminar about Snøhetta’s architecture project in the National Building Museum.

The press release (in Norwegian) can be found here.

Thanks for the news GrandDuchess, it's cool that both Princess Astrid and Princess Ragnhild with their husband will take part in, it's rarely get an opportunity like this seeing King Harald and his beloved sisters all on such a great visit like this.

Tonight there was a gala dinner for the Diplomats at the palace. Present was King Harald, Queen Sonja, Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Astrid Mrs Ferner.
Unfortunatly no Märtha Louise or Mette-Marit. Sonja wear Queen Maud Pearl tiara and a dress from 1997, and Astrid her peculiar Ving tiara

1 week ago Nils Jørgen Astrup was burried from Ullern church in Oslo. Astrup was a close friend of the King and Queen and godfather of Princess Märtha Louise. The King, Queen and Märtha Louise attended the funeral. In church there were three white wreaths from the royal family, one from the King and Queen, one from Haakon and Mette-Marit and one from Märtha Louise and Ari Behn. Also Marius grandparents Jan and Mette Borg attended the funeral as they were friends of Astrup. The Baby in the pictures is the grandson of Astrup who was born premature just a few days before his granfather died. Scans from SE&HØR

A selection from www.isifa.com from the opening of Stortinget attended by the King and Queen and The Crown Prince. There is no tradition in Norway for the wife of the Heir to attend the opening, neither Crown Princess Märtha nor Crown Princess Sonja attended (before she became Queen and even that was controvertial in the beginning)

There has been a vote at TV2 about who is most well dressed in the Norwegian royal family.

The winner is Queen Sonja with 29,2%
Märtha Louise 22.1%
Mette-Marit 18.2%
Haakon 10.1%
Ari Behn 6.7%
And the royal loser is King Harald with 2%
