Mette-Marit at the start of the construction of the Radium Hospital

Article from www.vg.no (Translation summary please)

Hyggelig, sier Mette-Marit

RADIUMHOSPITALET (VG Nett) Som den første i kongefamilien kunne kronprinsesse Mette-Marit i dag kommentere den gledelige begivenhet.

Av HEGE LYNGVED ODINSEN og PÅL R HANSEN (foto)

Kronprinsessen var på Radiumhospitalet for å legge ned grunnstenen til nytt forskningsinstitutt tirsdag formiddag.

Et stort pressekorps var på plass for å følge kronprinsessen som smilte og strålte fra høye stiletthæler, mens regnet flommet ned fra himmelen.

- Det setter vi stor pris

Hun er den første i kongefamilien som har vært ute på offisielt oppdrag siden nyheten om at et nytt barn i kongefamilien er på vei, ble offentliggjort mandag.

-Det er veldig hyggelig. Det setter vi stor pris på, sa kronprinsessen i en kort kommentar til den kommende familieforøkelse.

Da Mette-Marit ble spurt om kronprinsparet hadde lignende planer, lo hun godt.

-Ikke ennå , svarte kronprinsessen lattermildt.

Kronprinsessen hadde fått i oppdrag i legge ned en førti kilo tung «grunnsten» som markerer byggestarten på det nye forskningsinstituttet ved Radiumhospitalet. Inne i grunnsteinen ligger flere dikt, tekster og tegninger fra kreftsyke, og tanken er at dette er hilsener og håp for fremtiden. I tillegg til hilsningene ligger også tegninger av bygget, et sett av årets mynter og av årets frimerker og dagens aviser.

Det 17000 kvadratmeter store bygget skal etter planen stå ferdig i 2009, og har en kostnadsramme på 1 milliard kroner.

Etter grunnstensnedleggelsen startet den offisielle feiringen av 50-årsjubileet for Institutt for kreftforskning. De mange på talelisten i anledning dagen roste forskningen som har blitt gjort, men understreket at det nå er viktig å få et nytt og moderne forskningsbygg på plass.

Summary: Mette-Marit said that the news of Märtha Louise and Ari having another baby was nice, but when asked if she and the Crown prince had similar plans she laughed and said "Not yet."

This conversation happened when Mette-Marit was marking the start of building a new research building at the Radium Hospital.

Thanks norwegianne. Mette-Marit looks good in that suit and it was very appropriate for the occasion.
