The LIVE Webcast has started.
See the ceremony here.

(To German watchers: It is broadcasted by Phoenix)
Mette-Marit is dressed in a black suit and she wears a black headpiece.
It's a bit disappointing. She looks like attending a funeral.
Queen Sonja is dressed in purple. She wears the ugly hat she wore in Ireland this year.

Apart from the disappointing outfits of all Royals (Queen Sofia included) it has been a wonderful ceremony! I loved it!
It has been very colourful with traditional clothes and dances!
The Speech by Muhammad Yanus was very good!
The performance of Renée Fleming was simply stunning! Se has a fantastic voice!

I like her outfit, it is a very formal ceremony isn't it ?

Sonnenblumenmäd 12-10-2006 09:29 AM

It is the same outfit she wore at HRH Prince Christian's baptism this January. I am sure.
I liked it - the colour is somewhat deep purple, isn't it?
I am very curioius what she is going to wear tomorrow at the concert.
But I am mostly curious to see Sverre again at the official Christmas shoot. I cannot wait!:smile:

Yes , I think so, too.
I just wished she would wear some lighter suits like she did during her trip to Hamburg... To me it seemed the suit was a bit to wide for her.
I loved her headpiece!

To me it seemed they all enjoyed the ceremony. Especially during the traditional dances you were able to see MM and Sonja smiling.

I hope we will see some more, beautiful dresses during the concert (and I hope Mätha will attend.. even if I can understand if she wouldn't:ermm: )

I like Mette-Marit's outfit here much better than when she wore it at Christian's christening. It looks more sleek I think. She's gotten some good use out of that head piece this year, it looks like the same one from the Spanish and Bulgarian state visits. Sonja looked nice as well. I think the dark colors from the ladies provided a nice contrast to the colorful dancing.

My favourite of MM:

MM looks nice today. But she wore dark colours again. Smth light will be good I think.

Why ladies almost always wear dark on this ceremony?

HRH Mims 12-10-2006 01:56 PM

Maybe favorite color? :rolleyes: :lol:
Also MM's outfit looks like 2 or 3 sizes bigger like she is. She's floating in it.

Yes. She remind me Letizia's similar outfit from 2 years ago.

Maybe it's kind of Jackie O. and Audrey Hepburn styles.
