Except the fact that it's would be great if one of our dear crown princesses would be pregnant, don't forget that it's holidays summers, and that newpapers are full of pregnancy rumors when nothing happens. And we had a very rich year for pregnancies and births.

Why are they traveling with Ingrid but not Marius for official travels?

Question:
Saw a topic that said Ingrid Alexandra was a jet-setting baby. That was cute. Well anyways my question is, saw pictures of the Royal family with just the baby. Does Marius also travel with them or does he stay behind in Norway due to being school-age?

As Marius is in school, I believe that when Haakon and Mette-Marit are away on official trips, such as the recent ones to Jordan and Iceland when they took Ingrid Alexandra, Marius usually stays with his father or his maternal grandmother.

Since Mette-Marit is breast-feeding Ingrid Alexandra, Ingrid Alexandra goes with them on longer trips. The recent trip to Finnmark is one of the first in which she stayed at Skaugum with Marius and their maternal grandmother.

Marius has to attend school, and cannot go with them everywhere. The same will be the case when Ingrid Alexandra grows old enough to attend. Norwegian schools are usually pretty lenient when parents wants to take their children with them for a holiday trip, but most of the journeys Mette-Marit and Haakon takes are official trips and would not be very fun for Marius at all.

Thanks for all the input. I am an American and all the royal doings are new to me but very very interesting. I have enjoyed reading the posts and broading my horizon.

as recently we saw princess elisabeth going to a public school, does marius attend to a public or private school? what about ingrid alexandra? any news on that? do they want a private or public school for her?

btw, isn't it a bit strange that ingrid and marius stay with their grandmother? do they have special security or something like that when they are staying there?

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 got a pop-art portrait from Design Team called "Bleed''

Here is the article...

Quote:
Kronprinsesse Mette-Marit blir popkunst

Nå har også kronprinsesse Mette-Marit fått sitt pop-art-portrett.

http://www.vg.no/bilder/bildarkiv/1101551859.12272.jpg
POPULÆR: Her er portrettet som viser en moderne kronprinsesse Mette-Marit, designet av Bleed.
VG Nett følger:
Kronprinsparet



For svigermoren dronning Sonja har Andy Warhols portrett betydd mye i prestisje. Designerne bak det dristige portrettet av Kronprinsessen mente tiden var inne for et moderne portrett av Mette-Marit.

Portrettet er laget av det mestvinnende norske designbyrået Bleed og er en gave fra Norsk Designråd, som kronprinsesse Mette-Marit er høy beskytter for.

- En ny tid krever nye typer portretter, vi håper å ha fått til en ikonisk effekt. For det får vi håpe Mette-Marit kommer til å bli, sier Kjetil Wold, senior designer og partner i Bleed.

Fri tolkning

Bleeds portrett har et eget monogram til Mette-Marit og har tolket det norske riksvåpen fritt.

Under en tilstelning på Skaugum nylig der 34 norske designere var invitert, fikk Mette-Marit portrettet, som kan minne om bilder i den berømte «Celebrities»-serien til den legendariske pop-art-kunstneren Andy Warhol.

Warhols portretter av kjente mennesker innbefatter alt fra Marilyn Monroe til Mao. Etter hvert laget han også serier av kongelige, som dronning Sonja og danske dronning Margrethe.

Dronning Sonja ble under et besøk i New York i 1982 innvilget audiens hos Warhol. Resultatet ble et portrett som siden gikk til Nasjonalgalleriet og etter hvert Museet for samtidskunst.

Direktør for Nasjonalmuseet, Sune Nordgren, sier om portrettets betydning:

- At en av 1900-tallets viktigste kunstnere ville portrettere dronning Sonja, har styrket Dronningens image internasjonalt. Også at hun stilte opp på det. Det har betonet ytterligere kvaliteter hos henne i kunstkretser, sier Nordgren.

Om at det skal være laget et lignende portrett av Mette-Marit, sier han:

- Det er bare en parafrase, jeg tolker det nesten som en spøk.

Men designerne bak portrettet av Mette-Marit understreker at de har en helt annen agenda:
http://www.vg.no/bilder/bildarkiv/1101552005.09978.jpg
OVERRASKET: Her får kronprinsesse Mette-Marit overrakt portrettet på Skaugum av designer Kjetil Wold (t.v.) og direktør i Norsk Designråd, Jan Stavik.
- Moderne vri

- Vi ville gjøre en moderne vri på pop-art-portrettet, tilføre vårt uttrykk. Og Mette-Marit som en ambassadør for norsk design kan godt være litt i forkant av trendene, det har hun vist at hun våger å være, påpeker Wold.

- Dette er dessuten bare en pastisj på Warhols serie. Men det signaliserer at Mette-Marit er en moderne kongelig, sier Kjetil Wold.

I motsetning til sin svigermor satt ikke Mette-Marit modell for det spesielle portrettet. Det gjorde derimot dronning Sonja i Warhols berømte Factory.

I boken «Impulser, portrett av en samler», som dronning Sonja har laget i samarbeid med Hans Jacob Brun, forteller Dronningen om møtet med Warhol i 1982. Og så fornøyd med portrettet er hun at hun har valgt det som omslag på boken.

Om audiensen hos Warhol sier dronning Sonja i boken:

«Den dagen jeg kom til New York, skulle det ligge en beskjed i resepsjonen på hotellet med navnet på en kunstner man trodde jeg ville ha interesse av å møte. På lappen sto det Andy Warhol, med tidspunkt påfølgende dag, og beskjed om at vi ville bli hentet. Og det ble vi, i en limousin som strakte seg herfra til månen. Sammen med en god venn fra Norge og en venninne fra Bahamas ble jeg kjørt med blålys ned til the Factory.»

Grete Kobro, informasjonsdirektør i Norsk Designråd, hadde ideen til gaven til Mette-Marit:

- Vi syntes dette var en spennende gave til en kronprinsesse som vi håper skal komme til å bety like mye for design som hennes svigermor gjør for kunsten.

Question warm and pregnant

The Crown Princess truly is a warm person! I've always thought she was very pretty but after seeing the recent video posted here, she seems so warm, kind and natural. Norway should be proud to have this wonderful woman as their future Queen.

Anyone think that The CP might be pregnant? She seems to be wearing things lately that make her appear that she might be. I thought it was just my imagination but her recent illness made me wonder as well...

You're probably not the only one wondering about that...

I dont think she is pregnant. If you look at the schedule the Norwegian royal family has next year it would be terrible timing, and Haakon is quite good with timing accually.... When she stands up straight and wears flattering clothes she does not look pregnant to me, but sometimes when she slouches or wear an untailored jacket I can understnad the rumour, still dont think she is... She is going to Malawi in January and I dont know if that would be the best place to go whilst pregnant.

I don't know, but the first thing I thought was that she might be expecting again as well. That would be lovely and even though Ingrid is just about to turn a year old, I had a co-worker of mine become pregnant with her second child only two months after giving birth to her second. It is possible.

And the clothes she has been wearing lately, esp. in these last photos, are not form fitting dresses as I am used to seeing her wear. They seem to be a bit lose on her.

But they do seem to be a couple so in love and I just love to see them together.
