a little article to remind us of Haakon's role as Global Ambassador for UNDP :

Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway
Bringing together youthful zeal and development passion

Becoming UNDP Goodwill Ambassador recently – one of the newest and youngest among these human development advocates – Crown Prince Haakon Magnus of Norway combines youthful zeal with passion to close the gap between rich and poor worldwide. His specific concern – stemming the spread of HIV/AIDS, as set out in Goal 6 of the Millennium Development Goals.

"Frankness and openness about intimate and sometimes difficult issues is important if we want to succeed in the fight against the HIV/AIDS epidemic," said Crown Prince Haakon on a visit to Cambodia in October 2004.
"Your courage is inspiring," he told youth leaders he met there. "Openness is important because it makes you understand. And what you understand you don't fear."

From VG



perhaps someone can give a brief translation of the following article : http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=304250

and from Polfoto
11-05-2006
Crown Prince Haakon, of Norway, speaks to journalists during a press conference in Iximche, 55 Km (35 miles) west of Guatemala City, Guatemala, on Thursday, May 11, 2006. Haakan is in Guatemala for a three-day official visit. (AP Photo/Alexandre Meneghini)

The article posted by Jess says a small Maya girl sold some dolls to the Crown Prince, he did not bargain with her, he was followed by a string of UN representatives and bodyguards, several places they stopped to make some purchases, a man who sold him a bracelet decided to study the money to see it was not fake:p He also bought a bigger present that the press dont know what was but he was taking it home to Skaugum.


Today VG has an article saying Haakon has taken of the white "Make Powerty history" bracelet he has worn the last year, he said he still has it, and that he was given it by the UNDP boss in Tanzania. Fighting Powerty is one of the most important issues in the world today he says
http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=116273

I have to say I think it is sad how little attention this visit gets in the Norwegian press, I think maximum 3 press organs has sent someone on this trip, when Mette-Marit went to Geneva and Malawi almost all the press sent a representative, and when Haakon, the heir goes abroad, weather it be Guatemala or the last USA visit there is hardly anything

I'm very dissapointed as well with the coverage of this trip. It is as much important as Mette-Marit or any other royal trip. But, yes, probably with a princess travelling it would be much interesting for the press. But still, compared to how the Denmark RF dealing with their royals abroad visits coverage, the Norwegian RF has to learn a bit from them. At least when Alexandra goes on her UN visits, the DRF would sent one of the royal photographers to follow, and published some photos, or when Joachim was in Cambodia & Vietnam, there are still more photos of him there.

The Norwegian royal Court does not have a royal photographers, the situation with Alexandra is not relevant since Märtha and Mette-Marits visits are always covered well and then some, the problem is with the men. In this case Haakon, not one Norwegian press went with him in the trip to USA, which is a shame, since he is so much more capable than his wife, he is always friendly with the press and usually gives good answers. Its sort of the same with the King, his activites is hardly covered by the press, as soon as he brings his wife, there they are again...Should one judge the Kings work from pictures available one would think he hardly did anything. Its a pitty we dont have acces to the main Norwegian photo agencies Scanpix and Allover who usually cover most events.

The press has to pay for their trip themselves, and ofcourse they know that pictures of Haakon alone might not sell well enough to cover the expenses they have of sending people on such long trips. Im sure when they go to Thailand the whole crowd will be there again, the press are luxury animals as well, his trip to Japan and Expo was well covered

Is this the first time that HRH has visited Mongolia? This country has a very interesting history and a rich culture. I will be very curious to see what Haakon does while he is there. He is lucky to be able to visit so many different countries.
