All I can say is, on August 25 at Haakon's wedding, Prince Philippe (alone because Mathilde was heavily pregnant) hugged and kissed Mette-Marit very cheerfully and warmly on television

Haakons engagements seems to go by unnoticed by the press but here is one from yesterday, Haakon opening an exhibiton about the Romani people (gypsys/tatere), the handelling of the Romani people is not Norways brightest chapeters ane one of the goal with the exhibition is to avoid further racism and discrimination.

From
http://www.coe.int/T/e/human_rights/ecri/5-Archives/1-ECRI's_work/5-CBC_Second_reports/Norway_CBC_2.asp
Quote:
The Romani people/ Travellers in Norway were in the past subject to assimilation policies and systematic serious human rights violations such as forced sterilisations of women. Since 1992 a group of researchers has been investigating such issues and the Minister of Local Government and Regional Development has apologised on behalf of the Norwegian authorities for the abuses to which the Romani people/Travellers have been subjected

In the pic from the wedding Haakon is wearing his national costume, he only has one and he dont wear it very often, its called fana Bunad and is appropriatly from Bergen (where the wedding was held)

Haakon today at the 50 th anniversary of ANSA
Quote:
ANSA - Association of Norwegian Students Abroad - is a non-profit and independent organisation devoted to speak the interests of Norwegian students who study abroad. Our aim is to maintain and promote the educational, cultural, political and economic interests of our members
Throughout its history, ANSA has fought to improve on and change the countless rules and regulations governing student grants and loans. During this time, ANSA has won a significant number of victories. ANSA believes that all students should have the automatic right to study any subject in any country they wish.

The Crown Prince is present for InnoTovn Innovation Conference in Ålesund

Here is information about the conference he will attend for the next two days
http://www.innotown.no/
Quote:
InnoTown is Innovation Norway´s annual innovation conference. It is a truly unusual business conference for people who want to open up to the new opportunities that lie beyond the traditionally tried and tested.

The aim of InnoTown is to move people's minds, both rationally and emotionally; to inspire and enhance creativity and innovation, to help motivate people to think new thoughts and dare to fail – to succeed.

The conference emphasises vision, inspiration, strategy, creativity, promotion and internationalisation. It creates good relations between people from different countries, trades, environments and professions. This results in stimulating new ideas and the developing, deepening and widening of existing knowledge and values

Information about the speakers
http://www.innotown.no/content.asp?page=4495&lang=2

Here you can see some pictures from Ålesund, one of the IMO most beautiful places in NOrway
http://www.innotown.no/content.asp?page=3368&lang=2

Later today at 18.00 there is a reception for the Diplomats in Norway onboard the royal yacht in Oslo which obiously Haakon cannot attend but I hope the rest of the family is there and we get some pictures, edit: it now says it is Tuesday

Here is a pic from the first event today, from www.smp.no the local paper in Ålesund

Crown Prince Haakon opened "T-bane ringen" in Oslo today, dont know how ot translate T-bane presly its not the same as trains but very similar. But the point with the project is that you can go on rails all around Oslo, also some of the staions has been renovated at a total cost of 1.4 billion kroner. After the opening Haakon and The Mayor Of Oslo went for a ride in one of the carriages. He also got a small train to take home. The minister of transportation was also present for the opening

One of the most famous Norwegian royal pictures is this one of King Olav taking the train to go skiing during the oil crisis in 1973 when it was not allowed to use the cars on sundays. The story was for a long time that he insisted on paying, just like you and me, and the picture appears in about every history book, and went all over the world showing the down to earth King taking the train and paying for himself. However later it came out that the trip was already payed by his aide de camp and the conductor did not to take the money he is offering in the picture The story was told by the man sitting behind him, the conductor said "It is already payed, Your Majesty" Also it was not a chance picture like I always thought, but the King decided to go skiing and brought a bunch of photographers to the station with him. On one of the stops a man came in, and he saw there was a free seat but all the photographers was standing in the way so he did not see why it was free. He started yelling and swearing until the photographers told him they needed the space to work. Then the King told them they had taken enough pictures and invited the man to sit across him. http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ko...?service=print


Here is Haakon today, picture by Paul Weaver for SIde 2, lots more on this link http://www.side2.no/kjendis/article7...&slide=0#slide



Tonight TV 2 will air a documentary on Mette-Marit
