Considering how centered Mette-Marits agenda is around Oslo, this is actually the third time she has visite Hønefoss since she became Crown Princess, and its not even a very big town. Further it is the second time she is visiting a Fountain House, last time was when King Harald was just diagnosed with heart problems in 2005, then the visit was to the fountain house in Oslo.
