Is he talking/listening to a cell phone in the second picture, or am I imagining things and he's just holding his hand at an odd angle and looking at what can be assumed to be the show?

He might be holding an earphone in place for translation purposes.

She doesn't seem to be. We would definitely have heard about it if she was there. Maybe a mix of her fear of flying and wanting to spend time with Ingrid Alexandra and Marius? I don't know. Or maybe only Haakon was invited?

Oh, I think it suits him. Most people don't look all that great with beards, but he and Ari are exceptions.

Prince Haakon visited the Akasaka Elementary School. He saw them use Norwegian Salmon and Trout in their cooking class.

Thank you all for the photos. As to Haakon's eyes, maybe they are both. Some people have greeny-brown eyes that change according to light.

I love that lime green lounge. :) How cute that the children used Norwegian salmon and trout. Maybe that's what he will do next; write his own cookbook.
