Haakon & Mette-Marit are by far the most regal and beautiful couple in any royal family! (A whiff of nostaglia is bringing back the Camelot days)!!! Haakon & Mette-Marit take the crown (excuse the pun) from JFK Jr and Carolyn Bessette as the most glamourous couple of the 21st century!!!!

So what has Haakon been up to lately? Is he on his paternity leave now that the king is back? (Mette-Marit goes off her maternity leave, and Haakon starts his leave?)

Well, probably grandmother Tjessem, although Marius & Ingrid does have at least one nanny.

In looking at the pictures of CP Fred's wedding ..... it strikes me (strongly) that CP Haakon is a very lucky guy.

Are You kidding me?

Her outfits, her posture (or lack thereof), and her bored look on her face all scream 'I don't wanna be here!'.

She could at least try to make an effort, or at least make it look as if she did. She is just so "giddalaus".

With Crown Prince Haakon's 31-st birthday just around the corner (July 20), is there a photo-op planned?

Does any-one know what Mette-Merit is planning for her dearly beloved on this date ..... heh, heh .... besides the usual hanky-panky ?

I hope so! A photo with little Ingrid Alexandra would be marvellous! She's so cute!

On why imho Haakon is the very best among the Crown Princes in Europe ...

He's got courage. Ok, so Frederik crossed the top of Greenland .... even if he had a few weak moments, who would know? And fine, like Haakon, some of the other's might have threatened to resign (ieg. Felipe, Willem), but it takes extra moxie to take up with a divorcee with child, fathered by drug pusher dad.

He's got leadership. Every country has single-mom's but only in Norway does one member of the Royal Family have the gumption to endorse (and thereby legalize?) that position.

He's got charisma. Its taken a child for MM to regain her panache, but to look at them interact, he dotes on her, and she adores him.

He's got individualism and independence. When he married MM, what's he do? ... offs to London for a taxpayer paid 'vacation' to get a degree from the prestigious and very expensive London School of Economics. He knows the difference between short-term gripes and long-term gains.

He's alive. As much as I like and empathsize with Prince Philippe of Belgium, the latter is almost a dullard in public.

He's got country. Sometimes it helps to be from one of the coldest er ... best kept secrets of Europe.

That's an excellent observation. I think it is wonderful that they have found each other and have such a loving relationship!

Crown prince in boat trouble again

Norway's Crown Prince Haakon is patron of the Norwegian Life Saving Association, but he's not setting the best example. Now he's being criticized for mounting a motor on an open boat that's too powerful for the boat's size.


Last year the crown prince was criticized for failing to wear a life vest while boating, and recent photos have showed him without one this summer, too.

Now he's also been caught with a 50-horse-power motor mounted on a 14-foot open boat that's only supposed to have a maximum 35-horsepower motor.

Norwegian classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has put the 35hp limit on the 14-foot boat.

"The crown prince must answer for himself, but it's not without reason that Veritas has set such a limit," Jan Syvertsen of the Royal Norwegian Boating Association told newspaper VG. "Our position is clear that no one should mount a motor more powerful than that for which the boat is designed."

The crown prince is, ironically, an honorary member of the association, along with being royal patron for the Life Saving Association (Norges Livredningsselskap).

If the crown prince is involved in an accident with his boat, he could be held liable if it's determined that the accident was the result of the motor being too strong.

"We believe that exceeding the approved motor size is quite serious," said Jack Frostad at insurance company If, noting that it can mean cancellation of the insurance and compensation claims.

Haakon at the Athens Olympics 2004

For anyone catching the Opening ceremony of the Olympics tonight, you could catch a glimpse of Haakon applauding as the Norwegian group walked in. (Tiny group, as neither our female handball players, nor our female football ball players qualified, like they did for Sydney.)

Maybe he was remembering ten years ago, when he was the one to light the Olympic flame at Lillehammer?

They showed a recap from Lillehammer on NRK before they began to air the opening. My thoughts were of Haakon: "It's ten years, but my, he's matured quite a lot in those ten years."
