More still from colourpress,
Is there some brown in her suit since she is wearing brown shoes and glows...
No doubt Sonja forced the hat on her, Im sure she would have not worn a hat had Sonja not been there

Here is Kvarmes first ceremon as bishop of Oslo, its in Norwegian, he was previously bishop of Borg, he was invested by the Norwegian Preses among the bishops, the Bishop in Nidaros Finn Wagle. Kvarme is now officially the royal famiys pastor, and if everything goes well he will christen Märtha Louises and Aris 2. child in the summer.

http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ir...cle1008166.ece

The new bishop is controvertial because he has said that he will not appoint openly gay as priest, but has also said that it is his intention to be the bishop for everyone....

I depends on what you mean, it is her and Haakons first inaguration of a bishop so there is no presedence. The last times she and Haakon went to church, for the former bishop of Oslos last service, and some weeks later for a church jubilee she did not wear a hat. She did wear a "hat\earmuff thing" for the Tsunami memorial where she attended alone, but that day it was declared courtmourning because of the funeral of Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte so maybe it was an exception. She never wears hats for normal engagement like Maxima and Mary sometimes does, but puts one on for very formal engagements like national day, state visits and funerals and weddings abroad.

Two times she has attended Nobel, Queen sonja was not there and she did not wear a hat, one time (very pregnant) Sonja was there and she wore a (ugly) hat.

I dont know if that answers your questions, I think she usually wears ugly hats and usually looks uncomftarble wearing them, so I dont mind her not wearing it, better not wear one than wearing something stupid like a dead bird or wires sticking out of your head . Todays hat looks nice enough and I guess occation appropriate

One more picture from NRK, and two from nettavisen

Thank you Larzen for the photos. I'm not liking Mette-Marit's hat on this occasion. While it doesn't look like a "dead bird or wires sticking out of [her] head" (:p) I don't think it suits her. The rest of the outfit (except the brown shoes) looks nice.

MM looks great and so natural.I don't see why that would be controversial. After all he is a Christian priest.

I like Mette-Marit's hat. It's not one of those really wide hats that completely covers her face.

Haakon will be protector of this years TV money collection. This year the money will go to FOKUS - Forum for women and education questions. The money will be used on women that suffer from domestick violence, women living in countries where there is war, against sercumsition,trafficking and human trade in Asia, Africa, the Middel east and South East Europe

Im a little suprised that Haakon will do this since Mette-Marit is patron of FOKUS, but she was patron of the last two TV auctions though.


Also some pictures from nettavisen and dagbladet from recent events
1 Good bye Service for Bishop Gunnar Stålsett
2 and 3 Holmenkollen
4-7 Haakon had forgotten money during the service for the new bishop of Oslo, but got some from one of his aides, the Queen and Mette-Marit kept thei money ready for the collection

Crown Prince Haakon (Crown Prince Regent at these times) Queen Sonja today opened today a new national centre called Wergeland House in Eidsvoll. The house will make room for education and exhibitions about Norwegian history and the demands of democracy. The official ceremony took place in the same room as the Norwegian constitution was signed in 1814. Around 3 000 school kids met the royals and their hosts with flags and cheers. From ANB, NRK & Romerikes Blad.

Busy days for Princess Astrid Mrs Ferner

30.05-01.06 Crown Prince Regent Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit visit Poland, they will travel with a rather large business delgation.

01.06 The Queen is Present for a concert with the St. Olaf Choirs

03.06 Crown Prince Regent Haakon preside state council

03.06 Princess Astrid Mrs Ferner is Presen tfor the 100 anniversary of Frederikstad sanitesforening

04.06 The Queen is present for the opening of "open Castle" at Oscarshall castle, Oslo

04.06 Princess Astrid Mrs Ferner opens a memorial exhibition about Halvor Sandø, Namsos

06.06 The Crown Prince Couple is present for a reception at the swedish ambassy to mark their nationalday

07.06 The King resumes his duties as Regent:) :)

07.06 at 10.30 King and Queen And Crown Prince couple is present for the solemn memorial in Stortinget for the centennial celebration

07.06 at 19.20 The King, Queen , CP Haakon, CPss Mette-Marit, Princess Märtha Louise, Princess Ragnhild and Princess Astrid is present for Stortingets concert to mark 100 years without the Swedes, The concert will be shown live on TV2. Then everyone except the King is listed for the same enagement again at 21.00, but I guess that means that the King will just be there for the first part

Im happy we will have some new pictures of Märtha Louise, we have hardly seen any since the birth of Lea Isadora. Hopefully she will also take part in the Swedish royal couples visit on 10-11.06. Princess Ragnhilds husband has said that they will take part, and Princess Astrid also so it would be nice if the intired family could be there

The royal family has quit all of their 102 protectorates. They're doing a re-evaluation of how many they can take on, and will take new applications after the evaluation.

The King has been the protector of 42 organisations for the past years, and the Queen has 18. I think it is a matter of cutting down some of the work-load for them, and maybe evening it out a little bit. They're not as young as they once were, and both of them have struggled with health problems in the past years.

It may also give new organizations a chance to get royal protectors.
