Mette-Marit looks great! The top is fun and somewhat fancy without being too dressy. And she always has such great shoes ANP Beeldbank

I agree. I always love her shoes. IMO she has the best Royal Shoe-collection (excluded the ugly boots she wore lately) .

A bit about the occasion for the outing:

Crown Princess Mette-Marit marked the World Mental Health Day by being present at the opening of a new institution for adults with mental problems in Bærum municipality Wednesday.

"It is important that everybody with mental problems are met on the same terms as the rest of society, and that they get good help," the Crown Princess said. She also met two of the users at the new center and talked to them.
Mette-Marit markerte dagen for psykisk helse - kjendis.no

Mette-Marit is the patron of the Norwegian council for mental health.

She looks good; I love her nails and shoes, especially the shoes. However, I defintely don't like the top although she can pull it off.

She looks lovely - this woman is a phenomenon. How can you look so lovely one day and like something the cat dragged in the next? I mean, other princesses get complicated hairdos and complicated makeup and then look lovely, whereas they would just look "normal" without it. But Mette-Marit does almost never change her hairstyle or put on more than a little bit of lipstick - and her clothes alone determine whether she looks great or just strange. *sigh* I don't quite get it.

The hospital in Asker og Bærum has spent 100 millions for the property, partially financed with money from the "Plan for mental Health" the ward has currently 29 patients and has a waiting list of 23. It offers around the clock care for grown ups with mental health problems

Thanks Larzen for the links. On the link above, I really liked the first picture of MM having a talk with the two ladies I enjoying seeing pictures of the royals interacting with the people rather than just pictures of the royals attending the event.

She also meets two women with drug problems who has lost the care of her children because of that
MM was asked about doing this one week after IA was born. The documentary will be shown on october 15. on NRK

The good thing is: when you learn to speak Norwegian you'll be able to understand Swedish and Danish as well!

Btw, when you "read" those kind of articles from time to time you start to understand more and more of what's written there every time.

Being Norwegian I obviously find it easy, but I've heard that Scandinavian languages are quite hard to learn. One thing is the pronounciation (which makes Danish hard) but also grammar (the articles, nouns and pronouns cause problems for many). Norwegian is complicated with the two written versions we have (Bokmål = book language (roots in Danish) = the version you ususallly find in national news papers etc. and Nynorsk = new Norwegian (roots in dialects). This makes it hard for foreigners since most of the "Norwegian for beginners" books are published in Bokmål.

Thanks Larzen for the lovely pictures. MM looks nice today, though I had expected her to be in black again today. I thought the theme of the competition was different. Would be really intresting to see what they could wire about that at this age.

Will the stories & films produced be out for the public ? or who ever wins theyre film/writing be published?

She looks good today. I agree that it seems like an interesting competition. It seems like a good way to promote tolerance for mental health issues among teens, which are sometimes not the most tolerant group.

Having a competition in a fairly modern medium - the video, (although to the participants, I suspect it might be outdated already ) and aiming it to the people who might want to experiment with video, and to those who might want to be writers, might provide a bit more inspiration than simply Mette-Marit giving a lecture on the topic.

Hooking them just as they're beginning the second level of Norwegian education (ungdomsskolen) and before they're too set in their own mindset, seems like an excellent idea.

She does look happy. I'm sure she enjoyed being around the children after all the sadness of her stepfather's funeral the day before. Green is a nice color for her.

Green is a nice color for most blondes! I'm a little surprised she was out and about so soon after the passing of her stepfather's funeral. Good for her. Always nice to see her.
