Easter; 2003 & 2006

This was sent to me by The Royal_Fanatsy Yahoo group.

Haakon & Mette-Marit in Hola

Wrapped by a tropical climate and waters of extraordinary
transparency, the future King and Queen of Norway have enjoyed sweet
and relaxing vacations with Marius, the son who the princess had with
Morten Berg before marrying her Prince, as been the only witness of
their more romantic hours. Far away from other people and their
responsibilities, the Prince and Princess of Norway left behind their
busy lives in London (where they have been residing and they studying
for almost a year) and their dynastic obligations to enjoy like any
other family the caresses of the sun in what is considered one of the
prettiest beaches of Brazil: Geribá, in the locality of Buzios, a
village of fishermen (located three hours by car from Rio de Janeiro)
with a clear blue bay and the best waves for surfing. Surrounded by a
mountain range, the princes of Norway dived, swam, rested and then
took a walk by the beach. They went each morning to the beaches each
morning like two tourists loaded with towels and toys for Marius. The
Princes have been wrapped up by the intensely blue ocean and have
played like two children with shells of curly conches while the sea,
an accomplice of their kisses, rocked and entertained Marius, having
allowed them to enjoy their feelings. "Where can I begin?" asked
Haakon recently, during an interview talking about how he felt about
his, Mette-Marit. Begin at the human heat and that incredible
chemistry that exists between both and how wonderfully well that they
understand each other.


No inheriting Prince had been able to appear on television explaining
that it was arranged that he resign the Crown for love. None was bold
enough, either, to leave a palace to buy an apartment downtown. A
place to live with his fiancèe and her son, Marius. And, finally, no
one had even imagined that, by love, he could marry an unmarried
mother. But Haakon did it. Like a medieval horseman, who without
shield nor sword, appeared sincerely on television and went to the
Norwegians to explain (as if they were his intimate friends) the
reasons of his heart. First, he recognized the past of Mette-Marit
and he accepted her past life. Later, he looked into the eyes of his
fellow citizens and it told them what he planned to do: if given the
ultimatum to choose between love and the Monarchy, would choose love.
After a few months, the Norwegians got used to seeing them together.
In the cinema, the restaurants, the supermarket, the street taking a
walk, everywhere... Also in London (where they reside) and Brazil.
Now just months before their second wedding anniversary Mette-Marit
has become for most of the inhabitants of that cold country a woman,
brave, strong. Nobody in the world, with the exception of themselves,
would have bet on the survival of that relationship.

"Mette-Marit, I love you", Haakon says constantly to his wife. I have
never been so in love. You are a wonderful person and I am proud of
being your partner for life. And she responds to him with each word
and each gesture as we can verify through the images that frame this
second honeymoon. Photos that illustrate perfectly what really they
feel the for each other so that nobody can say that irreconcilable
differences exist. In fact, and following exactly the most ancestral
traditions, the Princes of Norway turned every day of their vacation
with the rite of the enamored ones. Holding hands they waited for
each dusk that plunged the sun in the sea. The moment in which love,
according to a marine legend, will be fortified to become
indestructible. The future Kings of Norway have enjoyed a wonderful
stay in one of most luxurious spots on the coast. A paradise where
the old one is based and the new world. Where one can write a
postcard on a writing-desk of century XVIII, or taste one caipirinha
that has fallen down while in a hammock under the palms, while the
sea and the wind are on the feet of the swimmers. The scent of the
wet sand and the quiet it is possible for a moment to stop time in
this peninsula. In this little town that mixes the peasantness of a
colony of fishermen with the refinement of a French resort still you
can perceive the aroma already left by Brigitte Bardot for four
decades in that the princes and the small Marius have filled in
Geribá. The place where the glances and the smiles become crystal.

They look so happy together (maybe not quite as mushy as Hola makes it sound) but still.
You can see the love between them, which I think is adorable. I'd like to see more royal marriages like that!

thanks for the pictures, Larzen.
Looks like they are really enjoying Mallorca... this time little Sverre gets to enjoy them.
Does it look like they just arrive there and decide to go directly to beach, that's why they're over-dressed..
well, i do hope they will dressed more appropriately according to the weather... it must be really really hot there..

Beach day of Haakon, Mette Marit and Rosario Nadal

Haakon, Mette Marit and Rosario Nadal pass the day next to the sea with their children

Such and we advance since them yesterday, Haakon of Norway, his wife Mette Marit, and the children of both, Ingrid Alexandra, who was born on January 21, 2004, and Sverre Magnus, born last December 3, 2005, they are in Majorca, in the house that Rosary and Kyril of Bulgaria possess in Porreres. In the middle of the morning of yesterday, the inheritors of the Norwegian Wreath and their children accompanied by Rosary and two of her three children, Mafalda and Tassilo - and of a discreet service of safety-, went to pass the day in the beach of sa Ràpita. Kyril and Olimpia, that they are in London from Sunday night, will meet them today. Neither the son of her, Marius, has travelled in this occasion to Majorca.

Of their stay in the beach, it was called powerfully the attention the discretion and simplicity of the Norwegian couple, very at the par with that of our of the same country one.
As another couple anyone that has decided to pass the day in the beach, they extended the towel on the sand sitting down in it, and when the lunchtime came they threw hand of the bocatas. And when it was a question of changing the diapers to the small Sverre Magnus, first she did it, helped by Rosario, and a couple of hours later, he did it, with the child knocked down in the pram, and did it so well, of so skilful form, which seemed as if he had done it always. Ah! And between change of diapers, it had walk for the beach. First she, pulling the pram, by snatches in Rosario's company, and then he, only. As if nothing, which is not easy, since to make roll a pram on the sand with child inside is not simple. In the middle of the evening, when the Sun was taking way of the west, they returned to house.
