I have to say that; beyond that lack (or fan) of fashion, there is an intelligent woman who knows her stuff. She has said that she's not a Barbie doll, and I can give you my word that this is correct.
[...]
I know this may sounds political, but I just wanted you all to know that this woman, who happen to be an aquaintance of mine, is a great ambassador for this cause; and I am very proud of her. So yet again; during this visit to Nicaragua - please focus on the work she is doing, not the clothes she is wearing.
Well said. And couldn't agree more: As I said before; her strong engagement for people suffering from Aids is fantastic. I really admire her and Prince Haakon for that!

The gang of children and teenagers play and hang out in the poor neighbourhood of San José Oriental. Then Mette-Marit arrives.
"Hola, hablas inglés?" asks Mette-Marit....

She doesn't speak Spanish, but with a little bit of interpreter help, finger-language and miming makes it work when she walks the streets of Managua.

The rest of the article is about the people she's meeting.

I think M-M looks nice today, nothing flashy, very calm dress color & working type outfit though im not a fan of it because it does age her abit. I like the belt on the dress.

Norway's Crown Princess Mette-Marit (detail handbag) arrive to Intercontinental Hotels coference room for a meeting with representatives who work against AIDS in Nicaragua Tuesday November 6 2007 (ANP)

The dress is nice. It looks good on her! Pastel colors always suit her a lot!
I really love her purse and shoes! Something funny and stylish!

thanks Larzen for the additional pictures. Any idea what they got in the bags? maybe abit more info ? The orginization
Quote:
HRH the Crown Princess of Norway visited a grassroots AIDS organisation working on issues of human rights and the sexual and reproductive rights of women and children.
visited, personally, think its a very good orginization to put out in the spotlight. Its good to see her not only visiting AIDS orginization but also to somehow focus on other related things in the area.

Its nice to see royals always interacting with people with AIDS.

beautiful pictures! thanks for posting.

i was wondering what happens in this situations when a royal doesn't speak the countries' language. it's obvious she must have some hidden translator, but how does she do it when she is talking with people (children or some other ladies in the places she visits) when you don't see anyone helping them? i'm intrigued.

Spanish is the official language but yet you get many who speak english especially those from the coastal area Maybe MM has a translator or the head of people she meets with speak abit of english.

a few more pictures from MM visit to SI Mujer in Managua yesterday (ANP)
