GREAT PICTURES! Thank you for posting them, Alexandria. :flower:

The all pics are very very wonderful. And your new avatar is very nice! I like your avatar's photo very much. Mette-Marit of your avatar's photo is very striking pose.

What a lovely revealing photo of Mette-Marit's adoration of her husband ... and, in turn, he offers his hand to her for support. Nothing against Frederick and Mary Donaldson, but I have failed to find a photo of them holding hands or him gently guiding her with his arm around her waist ~ however, I imagine there are many ways to show adoration and support to one's "significant other". This inspires me to be more appreciative of my husband.

Where on earth did you dig this one up ?

I&#39;m sorry that I don&#39;t remember that I found it where. [/b][/quote]
This photo was taken the night of the wedding (after they were married). They were getting into a speedboat to be taken to "somewhere" (I can&#39;t remember the destination) .. but, later, got away from the media and somehow made it to NYC for part of their honeymoon.

What really surprised me is that they were in New York City at the time of the "9/11 tragedy". I didn&#39;t run across that fact for months and months. In the newspapers, it stated that the "Royal Couple" had been "ushered out" of NYC right after the tragedy. I&#39;m tremendously grateful that they were not "caught up in it" for their own safety&#39;s sake.

What the papers were most concerned about regarding them and 9/11 was the Crown Princess&#39; fear of flying. They had to get her home, one way or another, and airplanes is the best way to do it... but a disaster like that has to be hell for someone who&#39;s afraid of flying. (Of course it was hell for everybody...)

Wow&#33; What a dress &#33;&#33; This is the first time I&#39;ve seen this evening gown ~ I thought I had probably memorized her wardrobe by now ~ but, she surely looks "stunning" in this outfit. :o

Thank you for your explanation about that photo, Alexandria. You know well about many royal families truly. It is so amazing. :flower:

I&#39;m sorry that I don&#39;t remember that I found it where.

This photo was taken the night of the wedding (after they were married). They were getting into a speedboat to be taken to "somewhere" (I can&#39;t remember the destination) .. but, later, got away from the media and somehow made it to NYC for part of their honeymoon.

Thak you for your explanation, Elizajane. But the photograph which I posted is this photograph. I think that it isn&#39;t their wegginday&#39;s pictiure. I think that it is a photograph before their engagement. Is it right?

[/b][/quote]
Thanks, Alexandria, for correcting my posting photo identity. I thought it would be posted near those photographs where MM and Haakon were boarding a speedboard on the night after the wedding ceremony. Yes, the photo Alexandria described was before their marriage. Has she ever changed OR what??&#33;&#33;? Someone else described MM to "wine" ~ getting better with age. I really have to agree with that person. Looks like she is "blooming" ~ and, I hope for a safe delivery of the heir to the throne after it&#39;s father. I wonder if they secretly know the sex of the baby by sonography.

Even though she is not my favorite princess, I like them as a couple you can see the love and admiration they have for each other. I see it with WA and Maxima too.

I think someone posted above about Prince Frederick and Mary Donaldson never been seen holding hands, I agree they seem very stiff , it&#39;s almost like there is no chemistry there. I wonder if their marriage will last.

it seems like Princess Ingrid Alexandra is already home. Her first visitors were King Harald, Queen Sonja, Princess Märtha Louise and her husband Ari Behn, as well as Mette-Marits brother Espen Höiby and her sister Kirsten Höiby visited the little princess Ingrid Alexandra at Skaugum.

I remember seeing Rania and Princess Noor wearing a similar ring. Is it a Jordanian gift to Mette-Marit?

I agree. She looks very happy and beautiful. This is just a "wild guess" but I&#39;m wondering if she is pregnant again. There&#39;s just "something" about the cut of her dress which may indicate, in MHO ONLY, that she may be pregnant. If she is, that may be another reason "why" she looked so "glum" in Spain ~ morning sickness??
