Royals to woo Russia

On the royal webpage, it says that this visit will begin on Oct 27 and end on Nov. 1, 2003.
(no wonder I can't find pictures yet on polfoto & ibl :) )

The first entry in Google, after plugging in "Murmansk Prince Haakon" is:

Quote:
... The Norwegian crone prince Haakon and his wife Mette-Marit are to spend
one more day in Murmansk than previously planned. The royals ...
Clicking on
http://www.barentsobserver.com

There is then an entry that begins with
Quote:
To Russia with love, wife and a state mission    2003-10-24

... Norwegian crown prince Haakon .... a reformer of the Norwegian royal house ..... comes to Russia for a state visit, together with his wife, Mette-Marit. The royals are to visit Moscow, St. Petersburg and Murmansk.

Russia is much more open now than it was even 5 years ago so, I think that photographs of the royal couple will not be hard to find.

First photos...
Julia ... Thanks.

MM amazes me with her long stride. I can see in that way, Haakon really enjoys her matching her stride with his, although I am inclined to think he really has to s-t-r-e-t-c-h i-t to keep up with her's . :)

More importantly, maybe it's a stretch for those pesky paparazzi to try and keep up with her. B)

Haakon and Mette-Marit Enjoy the Sights of Russia

Crown Prince Haakon and his pregnant wife, Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, began a week-long tour of Russia on Monday, kicking off their official visit in scenic St Petersburg.

Mette-Marit, now in her sixth month of pregnancy, was radiant upon her arrival, clutching a bouquet of flowers and smiling broadly as she walked alongside her husband.

The royal couple have a full week ahead of them – with an agenda which includes an exploration of the Norwegian-Russian cultural exhibitions in the city, and a key meeting with a business delegates to help bridge economic interests in the two countries. Later this week, Haakon and Mette-Marit are set to travel to Moscow, where, among other activities, they'll take a look at an expanding Norwegian-Russian college which was founded in 1994.

The Princess, who is expecting her first child with the heir to the throne in January, will be sitting out at least one leg of the tour – her husband's brief excursion to Murmansk – as her pregnancy means she requires a lighter schedule.

It's odd, but some of the royal women, whose wardrobes have recieved a lot of critisism in the past, (Mette Marit and Sophie Wessex) seem to blossom and display wonderful fashion sense while pregnant. I love this look on M-M. it's soft, (and in her seemingly favorite color, black) but the floral touch just goes so well with her coloring :)

A very good point, Fireweaver. A lot of the various criticisms of the royal women seem to have disappeared with the announcements of their pregnancies. And now it seems that most reporters and publications and news oganizations have nothing but sunny remarks and praise for these women. The fashion police have all but disappeared into the woodwork where Mette-Marit's wardrobe is concerned and the British press can't seem to get enough of Sophie.

Maybe they're afraid to criticize a woman in such a delicate condition? Or just too hard to criticize someone who radiates that wonderful pregnancy glow and looks like they are enjoying their pregnancy and reveling in becoming new mothers.

To go back to the Crown Prince and Crown Princess' arrival in Russia, from the Scandinavian Royals Message board ...
Wow ... a new side to MM.

Wonder what she is trying to say with her grin ?

Wonderful pictures. The amber room is gorgeous, and I love how Haakon and Mette-Marit stood out in it (with their dark colors against the glowing room).

Kronprinsparet besøkte tirsdag Catharina-palasset like utenfor St. Petersburg.
Nice pictures, Jun5.

..just think, if they didn't know where they were going and MM wore her colorful blouse, how she would clash with such an ornate room ? The thought that goes into bringing the right clothes along boggles (ie: overwhelms) my mind.

What a wonderful and delightful looking royal pair. Now all they need to complete the picture is some more little ones. :flower:

It seems like it would be really tough to be a crown princess and have a fear of flying, or I suppose that's still a problem since "she" decided to continue the trip by train. Yup, I know that routine.
