Haakon and Mette-Marit hosting dinners at Skaugum

Mette-Marit and Haakon will be hosting a feast at Skaugum in October, as Mette-Marit is high protector for the telethon Hjerterom (Place in the heart). In occasion of Hjerterom, the people arranging it has gone out and asked that counties, communities and others invite people who not normally are gathered to a feast. This is what Mette-Marit and Haakon will be doing. Those getting invited will be connected to the various organizations connected to Hjerterom.

Kronprinsparet



I løpet av 2004 har kronprinsesse Mette-Marit møtt mange mennesker ved flere av prosjektene til Kirkens Bymisjon og Rådet for psykisk helse, som får støtte fra årets TV-aksjon.
*
TV-aksjonen har introdusert gjestebud som en måte å bringe mennesker sammen på som kanskje ellers ikke møtes, og har oppfordret kommuner, foreninger, bedrifter og privatpersoner til å arrangere gjestebud. I den anledning ønsker kronprinsen og kronprinsessen å invitere til gjestebud på Skaugum fredag 15. oktober 2004, heter det i en pressemelding fra Slottet.
*
Kronprinsparet ønsker å invitere mennesker som er i målgruppen for TV-aksjonen. Gjestene vil være mennesker som på ulike måter er berørt av tematikken i Hjerterom.

Haakon and Mette-Marit hosting Hjerterom/Heartspace dinner '04

There's an article and some pics in the GRE bout CP and CPss hosting a dinner for lonely elderly, people wif drug problem etc at their home. I think it's wonderful and refreshing to see a CP couple hosting a dinner for the common people for a change. I really like this couple, they dare to be unique and individual, to strive out on their own and make their own mark on life.

Courtesy of the Glittering Royal Events MB, text and pictures of a dinner hosted by the Crown Princely couple at their home.

The big yearly money collection on TV is on Sunday, this year it is called Heartspace and focuses on the lesser priveliged in the Norwegian society. Today Haakon and Mette-Marit had invited 50 people to Skaugum. Among the invited were lonely older people, people with drug problems, mental health problems and users of the childrens protective services (Cant find a good english word for "barnevernet").

Haakon and Mette-Marit hosting dinners for various members of Norwegian society

Haakon and Mette-Marit host a dinner for some of the top business people in Norway.

I HATE her outfit, shes shortended a dress she wore to a dinner with Jimmy Carter some years ago, and it adds alot of weight especially combined with a not wonderful posture. You could hardly see her looking pregnant at the exhibition because she wore a tailored suit, but this was just bad (and shiny)

Also two more from the filmfestival

Haakon and Mette-Marit hosting Hjerterum dinners

When you see Mette smile in the pictures above, you can't possibly think that she needs to "work" on her smile, as somebody suggested.

Can anybody tell me how this dinner was set up? Did they invite people with mental health problems? How did they do this? You can't just go up to somebody and say, excuse me, do you have mental health problems? We're actually having this little party tonight and if you suffer from acute paranoia we'd love you to come...

???

I belive the council of Mental Health selected the invited among the users of their facilities. The guests included people with substance problems, singel mothers, people with mental problems, lonely older people, just people that struggles with their day to day life in different ways.

Thanks for the information, Larzen!
I still find the concept funny, though. I can't decided if I'd be flattered to invited to such an occasion or if I'd resent being invited for being other than average (the "token weirdo").

I think that they do really well acknowledging in public that there are those and all kinds of social issues in Norway. Excellent:)

A link to an article in Norwegian about the dinner that Mette-Marit & Haakon hosted for athletes. http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ko...cle1539947.ece
The article provides a list of all the athletes that attended and the sports they do.

Hi Guys! What's up?!I do not mean to be rude, b/c I really like Mette-Marit but when did she get so boring? I mean to say, she is settled and very happy with her family but still, she seems to garner the same amount of attention as the older royal members not the younger set ie CP Mary, Maxima..-I remember when they were first living together- I was so rooting for her-and then living in London- all the activity but she seemed to be more, I don't know, in tune with herself and now..I guess she has become a perfect princess princess but still.. MM show some sauciness!!!

Mette-Marit did not attend, she has problems with her back, she is not going to the mental health conference in Stavanger tomorrow either, Haakon is going instead

That's too bad. Although I can imagine back problems would make it tough to stand and shake hands with so many people. Hopefully she'll be feeling better soon.

Tonight, Mette-Marit and Haakon hosted a feast with the theme of integrating people with mental and substance abuse problems into the working world. I think it's great that the two of them seem to have made this a yearly event.

Also invited was people working int he psychiatry and volounteers
www.siste.no has 50 picutres, they can be enlarged by pressing the little symbol under the picture
http://www.siste.no/bildeserier/article2443494.ece

It looks like she is wearing the top she wore for the spanish gala but the effect is yet again frumpy. She needs to spruce it up a little, her clothes are just to plain lately, and if she insits on long hair do something with it. especially in the evenings
