Haakon visiting schools

This summer it will be 5 years since the couple got married and their humanitarian foundation will also be 5 years. To mark that there has been organised a writing competition where the first prize is a visit to Africa given by the Crown Prince Couple. The competition is organised together with the department for education and knowledge. Mette-Marit will lead the jury.
The paper should be about how one person can make a difference in your local community and in facing the challenges the world has today.

The winning paper will be published and will get to meet the Crown Prince Couple. Towards the summer Haakon will visit several schools where he will give lectures that focuses on development questions

Yesterday he started his "tour" with visiting two schools in Nordland county, and the students had lots of questions. Haakon amongst other things told about his work as a UNDP ambassador and what he finds most important with that work

It was the students at Andøya School that had invited Haakon to hear about what is beeing done against powerty.

Next week he will visit schools in Mysen in Østfold and Nesodden in Akershus
My translation from http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=120342
Today Haakon will visit the big military rehearsal that takes place in Troms this week, "Cold Respons"

One more article about what he said in Norwegian

Here is a video showing Haakon during part of his 40 min lecture on UNDPs work at Mysen School yesterday March 22. He also talks about even if the global problems seems big to overcome you need to start in your local community
http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ir...cle1256708.ece

Two republicans (one politician and one head master) are very impressed with his work and says they would like him as their president:p He speakes directly about international questions, environment and aid work and he does not sugarcoat

That's one of the advantages of the monarchy: the heir never needs to fight for his position like politicians have to, but is groomed from his early youth to fit in with the position. If the monarch has the right personality on top of it all, he is far better suited in my opinion than many politicians.

At the moment it appears as if the heirs are quite well suited for the job. And if they decide against it (like it was said that it could have happened with prince Frederick) then I think nobody will hold it against them. They'd loose their "public" privileges but keep of course those inherited from their family which seems okay to me.

That's right National day is coming up. Can hardly wait. This has sure been a fast paced and enjoyable last couple of weeks watching these different families with babies and Norway's state visit. But it looks like we have a lot more to look forward to right around the corner. Before you know it July will be here and the celebrations for Sonja's b-day will take place.

Haakon visiting schools

The Crown Prince is giving a lecture on development issues at Sogndal high school (it's the same lecture he's been giving at other schools), on June 7. The lecture he's giving is called "To make a difference".

The Queen is opening the new building at Norwegian Glacier museum in Fjærland on June 24, and she is de-vailing a sculpture by Kjartan Slettmark in Naustal Municipality on August 6. All these places/events are in Sogn og Fjordane county. A county that doesn't get royal visitors too often, so this is a big deal

The Crown Prince has been visiting a high school in Sogn and Fjordane county today to speak about the division of resources and environment issues with the students. Here are some photos from that. Not all of them in good quality, because they have been taken as MMS photos.
