Mette Marit is looking very pretty today. The couple arrived at Busan by train, does anyone have an idea how long the train ride took? I like the change of outfit, nice coat.

Thanks crm2317 and Anita !!!

I am fan of Danish Crown Princely couple but since exploring further into the forum when i came across the Norwegian Crown Princely couple, I am fast liking them too! It is esp lovely to see their love for each other expressed in photos taken of them and they are not afraid to show it. They are very photogenic couple!

2 photos from getty images:

I love the coat, but I do not like that the dress is longer than the coat and showing. I also don't care for her gloves as they are too loose.

More photos.
Is she wearing shorts???? On a state visit???

and I like the pink outfit, but I think that it needed something light to break it up. It just does not seem "cpmplete" to me, and I don't really care for the brown belt and shoes.

On another note, she looks happy and healthy. Beautiful, in fact.

It's not a state visit. The Crown Prince and Princess of Norway can only be on a state visit if they are accompanied by the King/Queen of Norway. And they are together not with mum and dad..

I think the gloves have to do with the incense(sp) burning ceremony since Haakon and the man standing behind MM are both wearing them as well.

Her hair should be a bit shorter!!!Red and white.....the skirt looks kind of old fashion!!!!!!Please fashion adviser, she had three babies so lets have in mind that and not think of her extra kilos now!! But a fashion adviser yes she needs it! Hate the white dress!

in the gallery from side 2, it says "Kronprinsessen har nok av sko å velge mellom, og fargerike er de og" while showing a picture of lots of shoes. does it mean mette marit went shopping or something?

lovely pictures, by the way. mette marit is doing impressively well lately in everything concerning her role as princess!

I don`t post here very often, but I read and follow the discussions. I am very often amazed over how harsh some of you do critzise the way M-M dresses (and other ptincesses for that matter). First of all; she may not have a models body anymore, and doesn`t carry everything as well as some of the other princesses, but what I think is that I don`t notice that at all with her, because she has a genuinity and aura about her that is just so natural! I have seen her in person, and she connects so well with people and I feel that when she enters the room everybody has to notice her. She is very beautiful, extremely beautiful skin. AND she seems like a really likeable and lovely person!

I have to agree with SofieN and SM1939; Mette-Marit is a very beautiful person, and she really has matured from the unconfident single mother she was in 2000 - to become a role model and a great ambassador for Norway. She has great knowledges about things that really matters to her; like Norwegian design, architechture, HIV/Aids problematics and being the spouse of the Norwegian heir to the throne. She has said in an interview that "clothes doesn't matter so much" to her personally. I have met Mette (as the inner circle calls her) several times since we have a few friends in common, and she is a remarkable girl, and so I have told her. And even though she is wearing shorts, a bird's nest on her head - or a formal dress that is a bit too tight around her waist, you must think that she is just a person like every one of us in here; and she goes to the toilet, and eating potato chips like most of us does. I hope you will read this, and think about her as a human being in the future, not only a wardrobe. :)
