Before Haakon went to South Korea he attended the marking of Asker as Norway's third fairtrade municipality. Asker is where SKaugum is located

small picture and article in norwegian from the homepage of Asker
Asker sertifisert som Fairtrade-kommune - Asker Internett

On Saturday Mette-Marit will be Godmother of Hurtigrutens new explorership Fram (which is also what King Haralds sailboats are called) Hurtigruten is very famous in NOrway and arranges beautiful cruises along the coast from Bergen and to the North. This new ship will also go to Greenland and is specialising on Polar cruises. Hurtigruten is arranging a huge event with some of Norways most famous artists at the Akershus dock to mark the christening May 19 13.00

Hurtigruten ASA - Forsidekampanjer

But I guess now they are ironing their national costumes shirts and shining their shoes (or more likely someone does it for them ) and hope for nice weather tomorrow, they will appear outside Skaugum around 8-8.30 to greet the local parade before they move to the Palace for a quick change and to watch the big parade in the center

Crown Prince Haakon at the "Boy conference" in Asker today. the conference is for boys in 10th grade and their fathers. The subject is the mental health of boys and studies that shows that many boys dont tell people when something is wrong and that it is very important for them to appear maskulin at a very young age to be respected or something to that effect

Crownprince Haakon also looks wonderful. He has a "mature look" that fits him a lot. He is no more "the young man" but the man. I can see in his face the Norwege future King.

Seems the Mayor was wrong, kongehuset and the countyman both says she is comming alone. She will board the ship at 14.00 and take part in a 3 hour long trip outside Kristiansand for especially invited guests to celebrate the 80 anniversary of the ship.

I guess the mayor misunderstood or they changed their minds, her attendance was long planned.
From Kongehuset pic and info in norwegian

Haakon today
The Crown Prince attends the European Graduate Programme Competition 2007, Oslo (10.00).
In the two last pictures he is talking to the Norwegian partisipants who has created a carry-freezer that runs on solar power

The Crown Prince grants representatives of the bow corps Nygaards Bataljon audience on the occation of the Bataljon's 150 years anniversary (12:00).
-no pics-

Seems the King is out of the country because Haakon will preside the last state council before the vacation tomorrow


The family was in Kristiansand this weekend, they visited Marit Tjessem and Mette-Marits sister Kristin, They also attended the wedding of one of Mette-Marits childhood friend Hege Aasgaard to Espen Hilde. Mette-Marit wore her national costume from Vest Agder (the one from national day 2005)
