If it has nothing to do with money (exactly what I think, too) why did YOU start talking about money ?!

IMO Haakon and Mette Marit celebrate with a very good taste, first the church service at the Oslo Cathedral, then attending at the event of the crown prince and crown princess´ Fund at Universitesplassen, and in the evening a private dinner.
Haakon and Mette-Marit are a heart-warming couple, and they are doing a great job. They deserve this celebration.
I agree, LadyFinn, life must go on - as hard as it is. Mette-Marit and Haakon acted very appropriate during the tragedy. Not one wrong step or word. With respect to their anniversary I think this is a quite and nice day for them to "celebrate" it in church and among friends and family. Why should they not?

^i agree with you Naggi.
besides, life goes on. how many people die in tragedies every year? like if Haakon and MM stops their personal affairs will bring back the dead.
i dont want to be mean and harsh, i know it was dificult, sad and many people crying for their beloved ones, but Haakon and MM did a wonderful job on that horrible time, they supported others. now let them enjoy some peace and celebrate their wedding anniversary which is a very joyful and happy celebration!

Well said, Lady Fiinn!
That is their day and they'd like to share it with people of Norway. As well as they share the tragedy with all the Norwegians.
They do not have great celebration of some hundreds of guests but only close to their heart and family.
I do like the fact they do not do it in private.

Sometimes I think that people forget that in the words of the Bible "weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning". There are heaps more platitudes, religious and secular, but they all say the same thing.

There is a time to mourn and a time to celebrate life, and this wedding anniversary is just the tonic that people need to remember there is joy in life and not just sadness and grief.

Haakon and Mette-Marit are sharing what is a joyful time, not just for them but for the future of their country, so . . . take a deep breath and enjoy.

And remeber, living well is the best revenge!

I hope this video will work for those outside Norway as well. It’s an interview with the journalist who has been following the Crown Princess, and family for a year and a half now, and we see some clips from the two programs that will air this autumn in connexion with the ten year anniversary.



We are shown a clip of Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Prince Sverre Magnus sitting outside at their cabin at Dvergsøya drinking out of plastic cups and having put straws upon straws inside each other to make one long one, so they can drink with their glasses on the steps below them. The Princess says she is able to drink with the glass down there and m up here, my mouth up here. The Prince shows the cameraman his straw and asks him what he sees and then if he can watch.



Later we are shown at clip of The Crown prince couple and Princess Ingrid Alexandra practicing a performance they are going to make for the King and Queen with guests at the Royal ship in the hours before the wedding of Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel. This reminds me of an interview or maybe a book where I think the Queen says they used to have Crown Prince Haakon and Princess Märtha Louise perform at different family gatherings to get used to being in the spotlight and appearing publicly.



The Crown Princess says she always walks barefoot so it’s no problem for her to do in the woods when they walk towards the water. She talks about how see is a very social person, but one that also needs time alone, and enjoys quiet moments. These moments are found by the sea and up in the mountains where she gets a chance to charge her batteries.



There will be two programs made, one airing next week, that is about the love and open affection between the Crown Prince couple. Then later on this autumn the program where we see the Crown Princess as both an official person and in her everyday life will air.

Thank you, it was really interesting. Very nice clip with the singing IA and Haakon with the guitar. Can you say, what does MM said about Haakon? It is a nice moment, but I didn't understand it. Thanks!

The Crown Princess attended the Nidaros cathedral during the Olavsfestdagene last year and she was very open about what she feels for the Crown Prince and their relationship. The journalist who’s behind the two up-coming programs had a meeting with the Crown Princess the day after the event, and she asked her why she decided to so open and honest. The Crown Princess answered that it was because she didn’t give a speech at their wedding.



The Crown Princess says this when standing by the window: "It is something about living together as a couple that can be demanding, especially with the life we live and everything that is happening around us. Then it’s nice to be able to take a moment and tell each other what is important."



This is what she says when talking to the Priest: "Haakon saw me when we met, and that helps me love myself even when I am at my darkest."


Then back by the window: "The most important thing for me was to tell Haakon how much it has meant for my life to have met him."


This reminds me of something the Crown Princess said in a speech back in 2005 at a conference called (U)synlig regarding lesbian and gay people as an invisible minority in regard to heath, work, school and sports. She said: "Each and every one of us long for someone who loves exactly me. This is something we all have in common. This conference points out the danger that lies in invisibility. Few things are worse for a person than not being seen."



They are such a lovely couple and I can’t wait to see both shows when they air to get a glimpse at their life that is very much hidden from view.

May be from Brasil it´s a bit too far to reach...?
Ragnhild is old and may be not that healthy anymore and the trip might have been too long for her for a couple she´s not that close to.

VG's royal reporter Ingunn Saltbones is in Domkriken and reports that the service began with that Princess Ingrid Alexandra and Swedish Crown Princess Victoria read texts. So did Princess Mette-Marit's son Marius and princess Märtha Louise.
Among those attending the princess Rosaria of Bulgaria, Franca Sozzani - which is the powerful editor of Italian Vogue, popstar Bertine Zetlitz, Hege Duckert and her husband and manager Morten Andreassen, with his wife.
