This is an absolutely beautiful photo! She is a very good-hearted person. You can see it in her face and body language.

I don't know what to think about her. I mean, I heard so different things about her: about her past ( bad things), now is said she's lovely person, but my friend who lives in Norway said that MM is horrible and people are ashamed becouse of her. So where is the truth?

That's the first time I ever hear that.
Of course people were sceptic in the beginning , but imo MM really developed very well.
She takes her role very serious and choses her patronages very well (her fight against Aids or the CP's couple Humanity Fund).
There's no reason for the Norwegian people to be ashamed. I have a very close Norwegian friend and she told me that the Crown Princely Couple (as well as the Royal Couple) is very well respected by the Norwegian people because of they are very down-to-earth.

I guess you could also point out that with her continuing education she continues to grow/develop/increase her knowledge and her person.

I understand the controversy that was occurring during the engagement, but since the marriage, Mette-Marit has presented nothing short of a respectable, caring, and responsible image. I am not Norwegian, but I would be honored to have Mette-Marit as my crown-princess (I'm not saying that everyone should feel the same-this is just my opinion and perception).

Thank you. Maybe some tabloids (who have nothing to do) write all the time about her past and that's why some people are prejudiced.

The Royal couple and the Crown Prince couple do indeed have great respect from most of the Norwegian people. I really don’t understand the negativity towards the Crown Princess that I see from time to time online. Yes, she has a past, but nothing really terrible, and in any case her past only matters because it made her who she is.

She is obviously a very strong woman, and I am both proud and respectful of her. Before the engagement and the time leading up to the wedding there were many rumours all over, and quite a lot of misgivings about the Crown Prince chose for a bride.

I think what many people don’t take into account is that the King wouldn’t have agreed to the wedding, if he did not believe Mette-Marit were up to the task. The whole situation was discussed within the family and with the government.

In an interview the King has said that he had a long conversation with the Crown Princess where she told him everything there was to tell, and he answered her with “we’ll manage this” and on more than one occasion the Royal couple has said they had to trust the Crown Prince, they had after all raised him.

In my opinion the Crown Princess has shown tremendously amount of courage, love and loyalty. I am especially proud of the Crown Prince couple for their engagement in the Norwegian society and the cases they choose to front. I think the Crown Princess has proved her self more than capable.

This might be OT, so if it is please move this to a more suitable place. With the recent news reports of the swine flu outbreak in Mexico, it just dawned on me that the Crown Prince couple were there not long ago! The whole flu epidemic seems strange in many ways but I do really hope the couple didn't catch it when they were in Mexico!

Catharina I have seen the news reports about the swine flu outbreak too and they said not to panic, so lets just wait and see what happens. I think they will be fine.

Hi, i think that the prince and princess are good in health. I am a mexican journalist and i can say to you that her was sick because people said that she ate food that they dont eat in their country. I belive that she ate " tacos de chicharron prensado" i am sorry, i dont know as i can to say in english. But, i that were near of them, i can say to you that she is very beautiful, she has a beautful blue eyes and her husband is very handsome and they were very nice. I hope that they will visit us again.

Haakon and Mette-Marit and their staff took part in the Holmenkollen Relay yesterday, their team was kalled The Crown Prince couples Court. Other famopus faces in the relay was the Prime minister and the minister of forreign affairs.

There are 15 people on each team and 20 000 people took part. Haakon said he was not happy with his own performance on the 10 leg which was about 2,5 km, when he left the realy-stick to his chief of court Randi Vesseltun, he thought he could have done better but he had high hopes in his wife who had became an eager runner the last year, his wife ran the second last lap. She said she had ran quite alot lately, and that their long time goal was to beat the team of the police, but she said her body guard did not think it was realistic.

Their team finnished 123 out 227 in theri clas: non elite - mixed class with a majority of women.

I noticed in this link picture #1 and picture #4 there was a tear in the seam of her jacket. I suppose Haakon noticed it at some point but the Princess looked like it never bothered her if he happened to have told her.
IT looks like a pleated insert dont panic

I adore the fact that both the prince & princess and their staff took part in the race. That is super cool (lack of a better term). I would love to see more couples doing this together.
