The credibility of it all gets strange when, according to VG, 7tage has a picture of where they claim the birth took place (which would be Rikshospitalet) and the building is the government's Cabinet building. (Regjeringsbyggningen)
Hahaha, that's hilarious!
I believe those magazines need to fill their pages desperately with no matter what!

-DRAMATIC birth, all about the birth:
She was admitted to hospital but Norwegian radiostations report that in the last minut she changed her mind and had the baby at home, a very nervous Haakon waking in and out of the hospital confirmed the rumours
But when her cute baby now sleeps by her side she can smile at her worries.

The Press secretary at the Palace refuse to comment

OMG,
why do they ever write things like this .
It's really embarrassing that this is fro my country:o

It maybe innapropriate for se og hor to print this and to follow them, but at least for us, royal baby watchers, it's a relieve of enornomous waiting...
hopefully, this is a "late-minute" shopping and the baby will come really really soon... not a week later... not two week later...
the waiting is just getting frustating...

I never knew that any English words were used in Norway. I hope I see more of that in Sweden, it'll make my learning the language alot easier!:p

Still no baby? The waiting's getting terrible!

Layla1971, you have to come to Holland! We use a lot of English words and when we notice that someone is a foreigner, we start to speak English automatically, whether we master it or not! :p

IngridAlexandra, Does your friend know what MM & Haakon bought in that huge box? what is missing from the baby's nursery? :o :o

Thanks for the advice Maxie! Actually I want to work in Holland in a few years, and I'm not too confident about learning Dutch! At least people speaking some English would help.

I suppose that is also going to be a difficulty for Layla in learning a new language. People in the Scandinavian countries have a relatively good grasp on English, and, a lot of the time, we prefer to talk that to foreigners to make it easier for them. It makes it very hard to learn the languages, to put it like that.

I've noticed people speak English fairly well and the accent confused me a bit to start but now I can understand it enough to get by.

There isn't too much written English, but that's normal really.

If you know the Swedish language, Dutch doesn't necessarily be too hard. It's the same family, you know. I can read Swedish pretty good, but I don't know if reading Dutch is the same for Swedish people (anyone?). But speaking is different, of course...

That's the same in Holland. I once had a American living in my student house who said to me: 'Stop talking english to me, I know english! I'm driven mad by you stupid Dutchies. As soon as you hear someone isn't Dutch you all start speaking english and when you're finished you've got te guts to say: Sorry about my english, I know it's bad!'. Well I tell you one thing: it isn't. My dutch is bad, not your english! So say something in dutch to me!!!'
After this little speech I couldn't stop laughing for about ten minutes and when I finished laughing I started to speak english again. Speaking dutch to foreigners? No way! That simply isn't possible....

But then I have to say, my writing sure is better. It always takes me a couple of days to pronounce other languages properly. :o I have to get used to the sound of them, I guess...

But back on topic:
Mette-Marit, do you think you're able to deliver that baby before the end of this week?! :p

I just keep on listening to NRK's internet radio - but nothing seems to be happening.

I want something to be happening.

There is very little mention of it at all, actually.
