In a way MM doesn't yet look very healthy to me. In some pictures she looks a bit sick (swollen face and eyes).
Anyway: It's great to see MM and Astrid attending this event together!

Thanks for the pics. It's nice to see Mette-Marit and Astrid together. It's kind of nice change to the typical pairs we see on engagements. I like Mette-Marit's skirt.

The Prize did not go to the CP-couples foundation but to Mette-Marit for promoting openess, awareness, HIV/AIDS and mental health issues and generally standing behind the inlcusive idea of the The Norwegian Women's Public Health organisation. The Prize money however she has decided will go into the foundation. Princess Astird (who is their patron) looked elegant and like a Princess, Mette-Marit looked like a mess, again Would it kill her to make a bit more effort with her apperanced when representing.

Mette-Marit definitely does not look well.

Princess Astrid on the other hand, looks very well, (and she looks even younger now at 76 than she did 10 years ago.)

Its interesting to see what MM promotes becasue she does promote things that do need awarness on. Great to see Princess Astrid with MM. Its nice to see MM with other royals at events. P.Astrid looked very elegent while MM couldve accesorized her outfit abit to make it not look so boring.

She doesn't look well, very pale and I wonder what is wrong with her.
If it was because of a pregnancy it would be announced now

I agree

MM does look as though she rolled out of bed, slapped on a few clothes at had, leapt into a cab, and made it to the event.

I know she didn't, though. She's not my fave CP but I get the feeling that she does work at the "job."

Winters are long in Norway - perhaps she's feeling a bit of Seasonal Affective Disorder. When I lived in the Upper Midwest of the US, I struggled with it right about now. Winter seemed endless and I would give a lot for a straight-up shot of sunshine.

I admire Mette-Marit for the good and partly unusal causes she supports and for her humanitarian engagement which gives her kind of an own profile. But then her looks ... What a mess! She has this wonderful blonde hair and does nothing with it ... and I can't stand all this black stuff on her any longer! That's other peoples' wardrobe for a funeral and she uses it for every day events! Some colour and a hairstylist, please!!!
