Well, most people in the world are indifferent about royalty. I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same specifically in Norway. We royal watchers do seem to be a rare breed.

I've put together some pictures of the Norwegian royals (totally random). Enjoy.

To night they showed the Year with the Royal Family in Norway on NRK, not really anything new or revealing although the King and Queen and Haakon did give short interviews.

There was some clips from the royal visits to and from Sweden, to Denmark, UK, USA. The showed some pictures from Mette-Marits visit to Malawi and the Queen said that making such visits to underdeveloped countries always made a huge impact and that it was very difficul to come home to all they have, and compare it to those who have nothing. They also talked about the role of the press on such visits to poor countries and what a difficult balance it is, on one side they think it is important to not shuw a camera in the face of people in need and that there needs to be possible to create a real dialogue but at the same time they need the media to spotlight the problems in the world (or if we take a slightly less nobel approach see them working )

They also talked about the military and that Haakon had been doing much with it this year when the King was sick but he would ressume that the next year or they would sometimes visit them together like Harald did with his father.

Then there was spotlight on the Queen and her promotion of out doors activites, they showed one thing where she was supposed to go skiing with some people to mark the "out doors year" but instead the rain was pissing down, but she still did the visit albeit not on ski and she was standing on the ice with some ice fishers and then the Ice started to make loud break sounds around her and she continued talking like she did not hear it. They also showed her visit to Queen Maud Land on the South Pole

They also showed some images of the feast Haakon and Mette-Marit had at Skaugum for people with mental problems, a lady gave a speech saying that when she got her invitation she would wake up at night and go to the fridge and see if it was still hanging there and not a dream.

The King said that Ingrid talked alot, but that she did not know enough words yet, and that she would get very furious when they did not understand what she was saying, and he though she would be quite the talker in the future. They also showed some more shots of her from the NRK interview with the King and Crown Prince, she looked very sweet and happy on their laps

At the very end they showed the pictures from the Photo session this christmas again. After they all had lined up Maud Angelica ran out the door and her mother had to run and get her, then Maud got angry she did not get to hold her sister and after some pushing she got to sit on the Queens lap holding and hugging her baby sister.

Thank you Larzen for the summary! I hope SVT (Swedish Television) will show it again in 2006 just like they did a bit into 2005, and that it will be online on NRK so we can all see it soon!

VG has today a list over the people whos name is most mentioned in Norwegian media.
The "winner" is our New Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg followed by the old PM Bondevik, 3 place to PResident George Bush

Here are the royals their place this year, last year and how many times they were metioned
The King : 10. place (2005) 17 place (2004) Mentioned 13275 times
The Queen : 25. place (2005) 48 place (2004) Mentioned 9251 times
Haakon : 41. place (2005) 29 place (2004) Mentioned 7441 times
Mette-Marit : 74. place (2005) 65 place (2004) Mentioned 5889 times

Im suprised the Queen is so much infront of Haakon, she is not very highprofile, but I guess she gets her name in many of the articles about the King

Will Mette-Marit and Haakon be likely to take part in this state visit?

No, only the King and Queen presides state visits, that is a visit to another head of state, when Haakon and Mette-Marit goes abroad it usually called official visit or something like that. The reasons they went on the trips to Britain, Sweden and Denmark was because of the centenary and they were called "special visit" and "fesive visit".

Sometimes during an official visit they may pay a courtesy visit to the head of state like they visited the King and Queen of Thailand and the President and First Lady of Poland, but they were not the hosts like it is under a statevisit. (The excpetion beeing the visit to Iceland where I think the President and First Lady did act as hosts and followed them most places, but maybe because of our close ties and beeing neighbouring countries, dunno)

The visit to India in November? was supposed to be a state visit by the King and Queen, if Haakon and Mette-Marit goes instead (because the King is ordered to slow down his agenda and long distance travelling) it will most likely be called a official visit and it will be less formal.
