Maybe the toy with the circle around it was one that Magnus is especially fond of. I'm not sure though.
Yes it says that Haakon and MEtte-MArit knows how important it is to bring the favourite toys of the children. Actually Sverre Magnus toy looks like a monkey, so maybe they have visited the Zoo In Kristiansand and he got a Julius toy, a very famous monkey living in the Zoo in Mette-Marits hometown.

another article states that for this years Open-Palace exhibition which feature objects belonging to the King and Queen, there is a section about the grandchildren and the toys the play with when they visit the King and Queen, and apparantly they had wanted to include Ingrids white bear but she had said NO and they had to make do with a picture of it

I think these articles are about CP Haakon's birthday

Fredag fyller kronprins Haakon 34 år, og bursdagen blir feiret med familien mens kronprinsparet er på ferie.

The articles just say he is 34 today and that the palace spokesperson says they will celebrate in private and that they are on vacation. Some papaers say they are at Maagerø. Others say they are abroad.

Last year they posed for pictures but it does not seem like they will today.
King Harald is deffenetly in Mallorca.

yes they are on vacation. The first state council after the vacation is August 10th and the schools start around the 15-20th of augsut so I guess we can expect to see them around then

On their wedding day the 25th of August they will be in Tromsø to attend the seminar called "Can the Ocean solve the AIDS riddle?" and a cultural event in the center of Tromsø, both related to their humanitarian foundation, and the next day they will start a 3 day county trip of the nother part of the county of Troms

Haakon and Mette-Marit has spent their summer vacation in Norway, they have rented a summerhouse in Kragerø for 3 weeks, the owner confirms they have been renting his house. The house is 80 Square meters and contains one living room, two bed rooms, bathroom, storage rooms and a sleping loft. The cabine has an own pier with two boats they have been able to use. Estate agenst predicts they would have to pay around 2000 Euros a week to rent such a place in july.
Two things I wonder how did they get so tanned as they were in the funeral when the weather has been lousy here, and how come noone has noticed them if they have been staying at the same place in a popular spot for 3!! weeks
An idyllic spot though, picture and article

Yes, Larzen,you are right! Their tan is morr as if they had been in the South! However, I very much like to here that they so much like their own country!


As far as I remember MM once said to a journalist that what she would most like to do is just always being in Norway!

I hope she didn't really say that.
Because 1. travelling is part of her job
and 2. it makes her look a little bit hypocritical.
Why did she holiday in Greece and Mallorca then?

I think it is very sweet that she thinks so highly of her home country. I don't believe it has anything to do with not liking to travel or understanding that she has to travel because she's a princess. And I don't think it has anything to do with where they choose to vacation. It just simply means she loves NORWAY, as she should, it's the country she represents. But loving Norway doesn't mean they can't go for a few days to Mallorca or Greece. It just means her overall preference is always Norway. That is what all should expect!

Last saturday Mette-Marit and Haakon where guest in the wedding of one of Mette-Marit's bestfriends from her school days Espen Walle. He got married to Tine Nyberg in Kristiansand. It was in this wedding Mette-Marit was pictured smoking. Ingrid, Marius and Magnus was home with their grandmother Marit Tjessem. Espen was a guest in the crown prince wedding in 2001. Info from Se og Hør, so it might be wrong

But otherwise the dress look to me like the dress she was wearing in her brothers wedding last summer.
