Thank you for the pictures! Are these the dresses at the V&A exhibit that Haakon and Mette-Marit are attending? After I saw the photos today of H & M-M entering the exhibit, I was curious to find a web site that would show pictures of Maud's dresses. Perhaps these are some of them.

Lena 02-01-2005 03:27 PM

Thank you for the pictures, pdas
For my taste a little bit too much black. You can hardly recognise anything. Well, I guess I expect too much, when I want the Royals to adapt the colours of their clothes to the colours of the surrounding area, in which they are photographed ;)

Yes, these are Maud's dresses from the exhibit. More information on them can possibly be found here: http://www.vam.ac.uk/exhibitions/fut...ibs/queenmaud/

It looks to me as if Sonja attended twice. Once at the press viewing, and once at the actual opening. (Note that we only see the Crown Prince and Princess once... and the last pictures of Sonja seem to me to be taken in the same spot)

Thanks Norwegianne. Excellent observation regarding the spot where Haakon and Mette Marit, and later, Sonja are standing. Sonja did attend the exhibiton twice. Once in the morning and again in the evening. Below are the pics of her leaving after the viewing in the morning.

Thank you, Norwegianne, I appreciate the link.

AFAIK Queen Sonja did the official opening during the day, in the afternoon there was a private viewing for the british royal and Haakon and Mette-Marit foolowed by a dinner at the norwegian ambasador, I think it is strange that H and MM did not attend the day event, what were they doing...

Thanks for the pictures pdas1201! :)

Is Mette-Marit wearing fur in these pictures? I think this is the first time I've ever seen Mette-Marit (possibly) in fur. It must be cold in Norway, as cold or relatively as cold as it is in Denmark yet the Danish royals seem to sport fur much more than their Norwegian counterparts. Or is it a social thing?

I'd like to direct your attention to the penultimate picture posted by GrandDuchess. Then I'd like to redirect your attention to the picture earlier in this thread from the Masked Ball, when they were actually wearing these costumes...

Maud had an incredibly tiny figure.
