Great pictures! :) The Queen looks great. Absolutely the epitome of summer!

There is definitely some of Mette-Marit in Ingrid Alexandra now, whereas before I think she resembled Haakon so much.

I agree that Mette-Marit needs a hat, too. As well as Ingrid Alexandra. They are both so fair that they need as much protection from the sun's rays as possible. I suppose they refrained from wearing hats so that they wouldn't cover their eyes or faces during the photo shoot. I do hope that on their own time while enjoying the holidays they don hats and wear proper sun protection.

Great Pictures Larzen- Thanks for posting.
I think with lighter hair IA is really starting to look like her momma. She has always been my favorite royal child, but as she gets older she just gets prettier. I think she will a fantastic queen one day.
I love the picture with HM arm around Marius. It seems to me that they go a long way to make him feel like he is one of the family. God Bless them, they are a great role model.

Thanks. Nice pics, but I wish MM would get a haircut, I remember when she was studying in London, her hair was a lovely length, a lot nicer than this.

Great family. Very down to earth! Ingrid Alexandra is getting prettier and prettier each day. I love the picture of Haakon holding his baby and his other son. Lovely family.

Wonderful pictures indeed, the family looks great together out in the sun! Mette-Marit looks almost as tanned as Princess Madeleine of Sweden usually is, and since M-M doesnt' have any Brazilian roots/blood in her (Madeleine gets a tan very fast because of it), I guess her skin is even more sensitive, it's of the Scandinavian quite "pale" type.

I wonder though, since Haakon has always celebrated his birthday in private, could this session for some press today be a result of those "jealousy" articles in Norway some time ago - saying that the Norwegians also wanted an official and public birthday celebration for their heir, just as we have in Sweden (for Victoria)? Not that this was anything like the Victoria Day, but at least he shows his face on his birthday, so I was just thinking maybe there's some small connection.

What a great family! You can really see/feel that genuine affection they have for each other. They are simply amazing.

The press who was invited was Scanpix, (the national photoagency) Tønsbergsblad (www.tb.no), a regional paper, and the tiny paper "Øyene" which comes out only once a week tjøme and Nøtterøy, in the staggering number of 3600 papers a week they have put some of the pictures online, and they are different then the national papers who all carry scanpix pictures. Unfortunatly only 4 of them can be enlarged, but here is the link to see the reamining 4.

Great pics

Haakon and his family seem to enjoy this summer a lot. I just can't stop looking at baby Sverre...he is getting cuter and cuter every day:):p!!!!!!

Just a quick question to everyone: do you think the royal families know about this site and do they actually read it? It would be nice to know!

How great the family looks! The babies look so cute as well. Is Mette-Marit barefoot?

i just got back from couple of days without internet, and how lovely it is to find such beautiful summery pictures from the Norwegian RF. What a lovely combination of colour, and it blends well with the surrounding atmosphere. Ingrid as usual looks cute, and Sverre is grouwing up pretty big too... Lovely to see Marius there to celebrate his step-dad's birthday. and reading the story of Sonja arranging Haakon's birthday is a nice gesture as well. Mette-Marit looks beautiful & i like her purple colour... (i hope the summer colour stays on her outfits), and how nice to see Sonja in her red-floral dress.
lastly, Happy Birthday to the birthday boy, Haakon!

The pics of the photocall are great, not only the kids look extremely cute, so does the Queen in her wonderful summer dress as well :) I think they had hoped to be left alone by the press for the rest of their holidays, but the scans Larzen posted show that this doesn't work..

Article from HELLO
After months of official engagements in the public eye, it's no wonder Europe's royals look forward to a relaxing summer break. And Norway's Crown Prince Haakon had an even better excuse for an island getaway as he celebrated his 33rd birthday this week, surrounded by loved-ones on the island of Tjome in southern Norway.......................

Nettavisen has the scanpix pictures from the photoshoot in better quality, scroll down
http://www.side2.no/kjendis/article6...&slide=0#slide

About the summerhouse, they seem to have found a solution, they will keep the original house, and the little house by the sea and only build a small police/guard house on the property according to the mayor of Kristiansand. Still there are some problems related to roads, and the safty zone the police wants, so no decision has been reached yet

They will probably then have to do a complete renovation of the house inside and maybe outside as well.

Thank you very much indeed, Larzen.
They seem to have a very great summer time and I love Mette-Marit's tan.

The more I see Pr Haakon's reaction to Marius the more I Like Pr Haakon. It seems as if the two of them get on like a house on fire.
