Hmm, there's that beard again... Please Haakon, shave it off - he looks so much better without it (in my personal opinion of course)! I must say it feels a bit strange and unusual to see Haakon dressed in the military attire (which could also be better designed, but I guess they have more important things to consider in the defence than design ;)), but nice to see him in it anyway.

It's a bit strange, because I look at him with the beard now and the pictures of him at the wedding... and somehow the beard makes him seem older than he was (Well, of course he's older... but still) A more mature face, if you will. Normally, I'm not a fan of beard on men (and judging by comments made by Ari Behn in regards to his beard, it doesn't sound like Haakon's sister and niece are fans of beards either.) but in Haakon's case it somewhat works.

To me, at least. Maybe not quite as much as this, though.

I kind of like his beard -- I think it adds something...:p
