Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon attended the Olav
Festival in Trondheim today, July 28, 2010. In the Nidaros Cathedral they
took part in the "Tro, Håp og Kjærlighet" ("Faith, Hope and Love") event
for discussions about the big questions in life.

The couple has made a pilgrimage that started in Skaun yesterday and
ended at the Nidaros Cathedral (Nidarosdomen) at the present afternoon.

Mette-Marit got a blister so she put away her shoes..

Snakket om død og kjærlighet i Nidarosdomen - VG Nett om Kongehuset

– Jeg opplevde så sterkt at Haakon så meg da vi møttes - Norge - NRK Nyheter (Video)

KRONPRINSESSE METTE-MARIT - Hvorfor barbeint, Mette-Marit? - Side2

– Kirken er et hjem for meg - Vårt Land

This event was filmed and will be broadcasted the coming Sunday.

I’ve translated some of what is mention in the different articles.

The Crown Princess: “I wish to help create a conversion about serious topics, with room for the big questions. Question we all have a relationship with, in our own way.”

About hymns:

The Crown Princess talks of her love of hymns and how they connect herself and her life with something else and a friend of her; Solveig Slettahjell sang the hymn “Tårnhøye bølger går”.

She talks of the hymn “Tårnhøye bølger går” and how her identity as a woman from Southern Norway ties her to boats, and the sea. When she is out at sea watching the horizon bend she feels the most alive and she questions whether or not we need cathedrals. She meets God out there.

About the pilgrimage:

“It was very nice to just walk in God’s free nature and reflect over life. It filled me with peace”

“For a pilgrim it’s dangerous to sit down. I feel that at least my body is present, if nothing else”.

Her love to Crown Prince Haakon:

To meet a person does something to you. And I experienced that the love (Haakon) showed me has been a great power in my life. I experienced strongly that Haakon saw me when we met, and in many ways that makes it so I can love myself even when I am at my darkest. I believe it’s because Haakon is a very giving person. It means a lot to me to live with a person like that.

About her close connection to the Tøyen Church in Oslo:

I met that congregation in a time in my life with big changes (My note: around the time she and Haakon got serious and the press knew.). It was good to come to a place where I could just be me. Inside the Church it is written “He gives strength to the weary” and I bring that with me out of the Church and in to my every day life.

Barefoot:

“I walk barefoot a lot, and it is nice to do so now also, since my feet are sore after the walk. When I walk like that I often think about what God said to Moses: “Take off your shoes because you stand on holy ground”. For me the holy ground is everywhere; on a pilgrimage, Sørlandet (My note: where she grew up) and also here in Church.”

About the Church:

First and foremost the church is a home to me, and I hope it can be the same for all who seek there. It is a place I go for the big events in my life, but also when I feel that life is demanding. I’ m very fond of the Church.

About Princess Ingrid Alexandra:

Ingrid sings in a church choir every Wednesday. After the practice they sing the Blessing. That is a great experience for me as a mum.

She is such an unusual person. Putting off her shoes in the public might not be very royal-like but it is so Mette-Marit-like. Gestures like this make her so lovely. I think that from all the current crown-princesses Mette-Marit is the most unconventional one.

Crownprincess Mette-Marit and Crownprince Haakon arrive for the birthday party for Norwegian foreign secretary Jonas Gahr Stoere who recently turned 50. The party was held Saturday evening August 28, 2010, in the centre of Oslo.

I guess those are the same shoes she wore during the Oslo Fashion week. I can't find a close-up but you can see them better in this photo.
