Marius attends a public school, Rollsløkka, just outside the gates of Skaugum. Whether or not Ingrid Alexandra will attend the same school is not known, she's got 5 more years before that happens. It's a relatively safe bet that the school she does attend will be public, though, as the Norwegian royals have very little traditions regarding private schools.

Ingrid Alexandra and Marius stayed at their home, at Skaugum. Their grandmother came there to be with them. I would presume that the security is high, wherever they are.

Skaugum is fenced in and guarded by the the royal guard, some weeks ago it was pictures of MM mother with Ingrid and they were followed by a lifeguard, I think there will always be lifeguards around Ingrid. It is also possible that the nanny stayed with Ingrid, Marius and Marit Tjessem

Doesn't princess Elisabeth go to a private school? Her cousins go to the same one, and I think it is private, because there is religious education (if i'm not mistaken, which I could be...)

Mette-Marit's approval ratings

Theese are the numbers from the Norwegian article

49% says she does a better job than they expected she would do when she got married
34% says she does her jobe as they expected
1% says she does a worse job than they had expected
16% has no oppinion

All theese number means nothing IMO as they says nothing about what they thought about her to begin with

She has won over many older people who were the ones most sceptical around the time of the wedding

32% says she does a VERY good job
47 % says she does a good/reasanable good job
14% has no oppinion(not good, not bad)
2% says she does a terrible job

She does very well with the teachers, police, nurses, and those who does not work\caretakers in the home, whilst the akademics are the most sceptical as they were fron the beginning,

Haakon gets a positive score of 88% noone thinks he does a terrible job, 45 % thinks he does VERY well
MM gets a total positive score of 79% 2% thinks she does a terrible job

Nice to see the Crown Princess making headway. Slowly but surely!

I wonder if late last year and earlier this year when Haakon had to "sub" in for King Harald while he was battling cancer had any impact on his very positive public opinon results? I seem to recall that many people were impressed with the job Haakon did in filling in for his father despite experiencing the arrival of his first child and wanting to spend time with her, too.

... Which also makes me think that the birth of an heir in Ingrid Alexandra (a very cute heir at that!) must've helped/boosted the popularity of the CP couple, too. Everyone loves a baby, right?!

Yes, this is quite possible. I remember reading a year or so ago in Majesty or some other magazine about Mette-Marit and they said that her approval ratings have gone up after the slow start and they pinpointed on the idea that she was pregnant and the return from London. Yes, everyone loves a baby!

I think the year in London helped her to ease into her role, but it might also be a reason for why it has taken three years, and not shorter time.

Ah, the heir. Babies always help on the opinion.

Yes, it did help her. But in the article it just added to a less than high opinion after the wedding. But you´re right. It did help her to reach the point she is at now.

Travel plans for 2005

Travels and plans for Haakon and Mette-Marit in 2005

January 23- 27. Mette-Marit is going on a work visit to Malawi to see Norwegian and international AIDS Projects. She is going with the organisation FOKUS (Forum for Women and development questions) http://www.fokuskvinner.no/ ) which she is patron of. She will most likely be accompanied by the minister of development questions Hilde Frafjord Johnson. She will spend two days in the Capital and make three day trip of the rest of Malawi. This will be her 2. trip alone abroad

Febuary 1 Mette-Marit and Queen Sonja will got to Britain to open a exhibition about queen Mauds dresses at V&A
About the Exhibition: http://www.vam.ac.uk/files/Style%20a...%20release.doc

Febuary 5 is the official opening of the celebrations of the centennial, Norway from 1905-2005, I think I remeber reading the the King and Queen, Haakon and MM will se a jubilee show at Drammen Theatre that will be broadcast on TV2 (The King and Queen is deffenetly going)

Febuary 7-11 Haakon will pay a visit to Sierra Leone as UNDP good-will ambassadour

April 2005 Visit to EXPO in Japan, I have seen articles saying Haakon going alone as well as MM accompanying him, we will have to wait for confirmation

May 10-13 They will take part in the Statevisit form Japan

May 17 National day

June 10-11 King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia visits Norway to open a bridge between Norway and Sweden as well as a Nobel center in Oslo, dont know if Haakon and Mette-Marit will attend this visit

October 2005. Haakon and Mette-Marit will tour the Midwest of USA (for 14 days according to Aftenposten paper edition) The Midwest was where the most norwegians settled and the visit will focus on the relationship with the norwegians living here to mark the centennial

November 25 there will be a gala at Akerhus catle hosted by the goverment to mark that it is 100 years since King Haakon and Queen MAud arrived in Norway

November 27. King Harald will host a gala ball in Oslo to mark that the celebration of the centennial is over.

The King also said in his New Years speech that the royal family will attend as much as they can of the celebrations around the country.

I hope this is correct there may be some mistakes and the might of course be some changes.

Hello! votes Haakon top royal dad

From Hello: http://www.hellomagazine.com/royalty.../princehaakon/

OUR READERS VOTED PRINCE HAAKON TOP ROYAL DAD

4 JANUARY 2005

The heir to the Norwegian throne, Prince Haakon, has even more reason to celebrate the start of a new year, after being named father of the year by hellomagazine.com readers. In a closely contested battle Haakon was given the nod as this year's "big daddy" according to your votes.

Marius could become rich in the future if he starts selling his anti-aging solution to the world. He stays four years for ever .

Wow, they publish their general schedule for the entire year? Do most Royal Houses do that? There's some very interesting stuff on the schedule so far.

As for the hello poll--I think he does seem like a great dad--and I think the Hello polls are so silly because one person can vote like 10,000 times if they want to--but am I the only one who thinks it's kind of tacky to have a poll on perceived parenting skills? Yeah, I know, it's hello, who cares!

No, but on the website of the centennial many of theese events are mentioned, others are written about in the paper, and there has been press releases from the palace about Mette-Marits trip to Malawi and the Japanese state visit. Other big events are also planned but they invovle only the King and Queen so far (Visit to Denmark, Sweden, Britain and Amerika) This will be an extraordinarily busy year for the royals and there is ofcourse no suprise that such big events are know way in advance:)

Article in TV2

I think it talks about Mette Marit's shopping in Milan, Italy. It also says that Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, Prada and Miu Miu are her favorites.

Can someone who understands Norwegian, please translate this. Thanks!!!

The article talks about Mette-Marit shopping in Milan, despite being recently critizised for not wearing enough Norwegian clothes. It talks about her getting huge percentages off, and some of her favourite designers. All of the above originated in Se & Hør...

The article also says that she also uses much clothes by the Norwegian designer who designed her wedding gown.

I just read an interview with Valentino in the norwegian fashion magazine Tique, that he loves Mette-Marit and considers her a good friend! He says she is a wonderful woman and a crown princess for the future!
