Here is a video of Harald's and Sonja's wedding from www.nrk.no
It's a long video, so you have to be very patient before you see the bride. Enjoy!

Thank you, as always, for the wonderful pictures pdas1201! :)

Is there a reason why Prince Claus escorted Countess Ruth of Rosenberg into the church? Where was (then) Crown Princess Beatrix? And was/is not Countess Ruth married that her he could not have escorted her into the church? (I don't know anything about the Rosenbergs.)

Countess Ruth was married to Count Flemming of Rosenberg, who was Crown Prince Harald's best man. Thus, he was standing up with Harald.

Count Flemming of Rosenborg was also Harald's cousin, as he was son of Margaretha, sister of Crown Princess Märtha.

And like always, you are most welcome, Alexandria:)

As Norwegianne has kindly answered the question about Countess Ruth of Rosenberg. I will answer the second question, Crown Princess Beatrix couldn't attend the wedding as she was in the last months of her pregnancy with Johan Friso. Her husband attended the wedding to represent the House of Orange.

very nice pictures! :)

The video of the wedding is just so cute! Harald and Sonja both look so extremely shy! A lovely couple!
You nearly cannot hear Sonja's "yes!"!
And I really like the Entry-Song! Nice melody!

What did Sonja wear in her hair? It doesn't look like a Tiara, but like "Flowers" or something like this !
Does anyone know?
