More still from colourpress,
Is there some brown in her suit since she is wearing brown shoes and glows...
No doubt Sonja forced the hat on her, Im sure she would have not worn a hat had Sonja not been there;)

Here is Kvarmes first ceremon as bishop of Oslo, its in Norwegian, he was previously bishop of Borg, he was invested by the Norwegian Preses among the bishops, the Bishop in Nidaros Finn Wagle. Kvarme is now officially the royal famiys pastor, and if everything goes well he will christen Märtha Louises and Aris 2. child in the summer.

The new bishop is controvertial because he has said that he will not appoint openly gay as priest, but has also said that it is his intention to be the bishop for everyone....

I depends on what you mean, it is her and Haakons first inaguration of a bishop so there is no presedence. The last times she and Haakon went to church, for the former bishop of Oslos last service, and some weeks later for a church jubilee she did not wear a hat. She did wear a "hat\earmuff thing" for the Tsunami memorial where she attended alone, but that day it was declared courtmourning because of the funeral of Grand Duchess Josephine Charlotte so maybe it was an exception. She never wears hats for normal engagement like Maxima and Mary sometimes does, but puts one on for very formal engagements like national day, state visits and funerals and weddings abroad.

Two times she has attended Nobel, Queen sonja was not there and she did not wear a hat, one time (very pregnant) Sonja was there and she wore a (ugly) hat.

I dont know if that answers your questions, I think she usually wears ugly hats and usually looks uncomftarble wearing them, so I dont mind her not wearing it, better not wear one than wearing something stupid like a dead bird or wires sticking out of your head:rolleyes: . Todays hat looks nice enough and I guess occation appropriate

One more picture from NRK, and two from nettavisen

Thank you Larzen for the photos. I'm not liking Mette-Marit's hat on this occasion. While it doesn't look like a "dead bird or wires sticking out of [her] head" (:p) I don't think it suits her. The rest of the outfit (except the brown shoes) looks nice.

MM looks great and so natural.I don't see why that would be controversial. After all he is a Christian priest.

I like Mette-Marit's hat. It's not one of those really wide hats that completely covers her face.

Haakon will be protector of this years TV money collection. This year the money will go to FOKUS - Forum for women and education questions. The money will be used on women that suffer from domestick violence, women living in countries where there is war, against sercumsition,trafficking and human trade in Asia, Africa, the Middel east and South East Europe

Im a little suprised that Haakon will do this since Mette-Marit is patron of FOKUS, but she was patron of the last two TV auctions though.


Also some pictures from nettavisen and dagbladet from recent events
1 Good bye Service for Bishop Gunnar Stålsett
2 and 3 Holmenkollen
4-7 Haakon had forgotten money during the service for the new bishop of Oslo, but got some from one of his aides, the Queen and Mette-Marit kept thei money ready for the collection
