Mette Marit looks so beautiful in these pictures. She's positively glowing (not pregnant, is she?).

She said a couple of days ago that she wasn't, when she told the press how nice she thought Märtha's pregnancy was. Or so I interpreted her comments.

Just wait... we'll probably have an announcement next year... the Norwegian press speculated around the fact that Ingrid Alexandra was conceived around the time of Maud Angelica's birth... :p

Sigh... again the buttoning.....

Anyway the article says that MM will continue with humanitarian work and that she is in the middle of deciding what to do, she also hopes to go to Africa in spring 2005

But she is wearing pink, a color that suits her well. I suppose it is an even trade off.:p

Larzen 09-24-2004 01:26 PM

Yes, and the hair looks nice, now if she could only wear som collor on her lips....

Mette-Marit looks very good and polished at her UN visit. But I don't know about the light colour of her suit and the neck thing. They are very pale colours and Mette-Marit is pale herself, so her suit and scarf thing practically blend in with her skin tone.

I thin her suit looked nice!

the buttoning
 
I just relized yesterday by looking through a magazine that it is quite fashion right know to do the "buttoning' so even though I also don`t like it too much i just thinks she is going with fashion. I think the collor hat looks the best on her is black. She looked wonderful in Finnmark wearing that black Jacket but off cousre that is just in my oppinion.
wishing you all a very nice weekend

Fashion is an odd thing, don't you agree?

Elizajane 09-25-2004 11:51 AM

I agree with you, Christina, regarding the need for contrast in her outfit. When enlarging one of the "thumbnails", I see that the top has a "black collar", so maybe she thought it would then go well with a black skirt. What has impressed me about these photos and others on this thread is "how close to each other" they are. To me, it seems as they were made for each other. Haakon looks pretty proud with her at her side ... and, I love her hair when she wore the "black and blue" skirt and top. Very chic!

I noticed that too. Her tummy looks a little big. I wonder if she just hasn't lost the weight from her pregnancy with P Ingrid Alexandria. or maybe she and Haakon have decided to get having more chilidren out of the way so that they can focus on their royal duties.

Elizajane 09-25-2004 04:02 PM

Wouldn't that be spended, BlueTortuga? ... and, wise? ~ I mean in having more children and getting that "settled" in order for them to focus on their royal duties. Just can't help it ~ I just love "babies" ~ royal or not!

Summary: The Crown Prince couple received as a wedding gift 3 years ago a trip to Geneva to study the 5 human aid organizations that gave them the trip. Because of a tight program and a baby they haven't had the time to do it before now. The five organizations are: Norwegian Red Cross, Norwegian Church Aid, Save the Children, Norwegian People's Help and Norwegian Refugee Council. (I have no clue to the actual English names of them, thus some of the names are the actual literal translations, and not what they might be called in other countries.)
