are you saying that her coat is about 7 years old:ohmy: anyways, i do agree on the hat & hair, very well put together. Sonja's outfit is abit too young for her. will there be a dinner ? tiara?

MM can be every inch a lady - very nice outfit!

There'll be a gala dinner tonight. Since this is a State Visit (and not an Official Visit or whatever) I think it will be a Tiara event. :flowers:

I hope we'll see some new dresses... but I don't think so. Both, the Queen and the Crown Princess wore new dresses at Harald's birthday and it seems the Norwegian Royal women rarely buy new galadresses. :lol:
I hope Princess Märtha-Louise will attend the gala dinner, too.

Well, Larzen, that´s very generous of you, that you let the CPrincess of Norway choose her outfits by herself...;)
This coat is a very elegant one and there´s no reason what so ever not to
wear a a 3rd time!
All royal persons, male or female or what country they might come from,
wear their official outfits several times - it´s nothing "typical norwegian".
And this is more than fair enough.

I love MM, I love green dresses.... I am very satisfied

It seemed that Princess Astrid did not attend the Banquet?However, the Queen and the Crown Princess looked great, nice choice of gala dresses.

No, I don´t think it´s new. I believe it´s the one she wore for a reception
at Oslo´s townhall for the state visit of the imperial couple of Japan(?)

I´m always impressed about the youthful and fresh looks of Queen Sonja.
I am happy she chose Queen Mauds Pearl tiara this time since she doesn´t
wear it that often.
