It's a bit strange, because I look at him with the beard now and the pictures of him at the wedding... and somehow the beard makes him seem older than he was (Well, of course he's older... but still) A more mature face, if you will. Normally, I'm not a fan of beard on men (and judging by comments made by Ari Behn in regards to his beard, it doesn't sound like Haakon's sister and niece are fans of beards either.) but in Haakon's case it somewhat works.
To me, at least. Maybe not quite as much as this, though.
