Mette-Marit looks nice, but always those thick black stockings!
She should wear the really thin ones...
I can't wait to see them in India!

She looks nice and is a natural beauty, but I must say when you see pictures of CP Vic, the CPs and their wives and other royalty, she looks plain. I mean even her husband looks more chic than her and no one can say he's not a mans-man. Like a Viking king truly. And that little lady they have is just the bomb. I'll bet she will have chic fashion sense like her father...

Here is the program for the business delegation, cant find any program for the crown prince couple yet, but this program tells of some of the events they might attending, from the program will look like Haakon will attend more business events than Mette-Marit, maybe she will have some more humanitarian/cultrual events. The trip has high business interests (and also much focus on fish) and both the Minister of Trade and the Minister of oil and energy is going to be there for (parts?) of the trip

From se og hr it is know they will also be in attendance at the opening of the Norwegian filmfestival.

I wonder when we will see the first pictures, the press release says they arrive in Mumbai today, the 29th, but the calendar at Kongehuset and also at the Ministry of forreign affairs says the visit dont start until the 31st. The two Ministers (Minister of Oil and Energy and Minister of Trade) who is with them arrives today as well, and has events to attend both today and tomorrow, the business delegation also has program today and tomorrow

The seminar will be held on Monday, October 30, at the Hilton Towers in Mumbai.

There are several articles regarding this trip from the Indian press. The quotes are probably taken during their interview on 19 October 2006.
