No, I don't think so. MM and Haakon just host this kind of dinners from time to time.

The calendar entry says:

Such dinners are nice to host time to time but it would also be nice to know why they are hosted. MM could look much taller and not pregnant if she stands up straight, she has bad posture. It seems to such dinners MM is always seen in dark colors.

Do these dinners have a theme (recognition of someone)? Whom do they invite? I think that it is nice that they host dinners regularly. They do seem very social. I am sure that these invitiations are extremely coveted.

Very nice article! I was able to translate it, and I was very impressed with the CP couple for inviting this woman to sing for them. I admire their commitment to helping those who are typically shunned by society (ie. mental disorders, AIDS, etc). The CP couple have always seemed to be genuinely caring, good people.

Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince and Crown Princess host a banquet at Skaugum (19:00).
Here is an article about a volunteer of the Red Cross receiving an invitation. Probably about 55 volunteers from across the country are expected.

Sounds like a nice thing to do. I would say that Prince Haakon and Mette-Marit are very down to earth people.

Press release about the dinner next week

This year's dinner is a collaboration with the Red Cross. The focus this time is loneliness as a social challenge. Guests are participants and volunteers in Red Cross programs across the country on this topic.
The couple has invited more than 50 guests to Skaugum this evening, and are holding such a dinner for the ninth time this year.

Other pictures related to the dinner in wonderful Skaugum..:-). It is a very nice idea to invite so many people and to create a network.

On Thursday, the CP Couple will host their traditional banquet at Skaugum, now for the 10th time:

Quote:
27.11.2014 Banquet at Skaugum
Their Royal Highnesses The Crown Prince Regent and The Crown Princess host a banquet at Skaugum (20:00).
The banquet was first held in conjunction with the telethon Hjerterom in 2004, which went to the Church City Mission and the Council for Mental Health. 10 years later, several of the guests from the first year are invited back, in addition to some new guests from these two organizations.

The theme is the experience of the last ten years, and several speakers will share their experiences and draw lines back to 2004. It will also be dinner and pleasant conversations around the tables.

I found this on twitter:
"David and Tony celebrated Thanksgiving with Håkon Magnus and Mette-Marit at Skaugum":
Instagram

Is it usual to celebrate Thanksgiving in Norway?
