The photos are really nice! I love the final one: Grandfather Harald holding little Maud Angelica.

She isn´t doing really bad as crown princess, but sometimes it is also hard to read out, who she actually is and who she wants to be. One can accuse me here for superficialty. But I think style is saying a lot about ones personality and attitude...
Lena, I agree with you 100%!!!

The royal budget for the next year has been approved without protests, everyone voted in favour

The King and Queen gets in total 143 968 00 million kroner next year
7.9 million is the appanage, for which they cover private expdenses as well costs for representative work.
112 million is for the staff and the court
24 million is for special projects (I guess renovation of buildings and similar)

the Crown Prince couple gets 18 529 000 kroner
5.9 million kroner is appanage for private use and representative costs
the rest is for "drift" which I guess means the running of their court, staff vages, maitnance of Skaugum etc.
http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=159139
to check presisly what covers what check out the royal budget published at the home page annually as Im not clear on the specifics, last years
