More. The jacket looks very big, she has worn it before when not pregnant and somehow it did not look this big:confused: . Other than that not to bad, shoes and purse that match each other and the suit, no visible roots and even added a brooch and a bracelet. She could maybe have put her hair in a bun or something...

They looked like they enjoyed them self and there was a huge crowd, Bergen should have been the capital:D

Nice pictures... They look great. :)

Maybe MM had the jacket altered which is why it looks larger now than before she was pregant.

I don't know. I think touching up the roots completely make for a bit of unnatural hair colour. Especially if done so pale when the ends of her hair is a darker colour... The hair closest to her head in the first picture was almost stark white in the light. On the other hand, she has had some periods where the dark roots have been very overwhelming.

I loved the way Haakon put his hand on her back, and they did look good.

since the very first moment i liked that pink jacket she wore to the italian visit... but this time it's quite different. also, the other time she wore a high neck pullover down and it looked much nicer as bright colours are not the best choice for her as she is so blonde and scandinavian :)
i think a touch of colour suits her better.

I would have liked the suit M-M wore to Charles's and Camilla's wedding better without the dark stockings and light-colored shoes. I do like the pink suit she wore in Bergen, though.:)

I find her hair messy sometimes.
She should do something to it like (tie it) so that it would look nice.
It is better now that CP M-M is starting to wear light colored attires compared to the previous months when she use to wear black outfits. Its as if someone has died.

carlota 05-28-2005 11:45 AM

i think she looks nicer in darker colours as she is so white (pale) but prefer colours such as blue or black rather than brown, the one that she was using a lot the past weeks since the announcement.
however this pink suit its nice. pink is a lovely colour that suits many people...

i agree it!

M-M have chose good outfits since her marriages to Haakon because she is Crown Princess but she still stylish clothing!

Crown Prince Haakon will also this year open the Bergen International Festival on May 24th, The King is protector for the festival which is the social highlight in Bergen and usually always opened by someone from the Royal Family. It is not confirmed if his wife will accompany him like she did las year.

At the bottom here you can see a picturespecial from last year, Mette-Marit was pregnant with Sverre Magnus

Haakon at the Bergen International Festival '06
Norway is on the verge of a big strike in the state sector, if it becomes strike today most of the police in Bergen will be taken out in strike and Haakon will have to manage without the police escorte when he comes to Bergen today to open the International festival, ofcourse he will still have his body guards but not the police on motorcycles who usually accompany royal cars

Further the musicians in Bergen Philarmonic - Harmonien, who was going to play during the opening is also on a strike today and will probably not perform. The leader of the International festival Per Boye Hansen says he has other musician ready to step in. The leader of Harmonien is not amused with this solution and wonders if the International festival would like to have musicians in the future

Haakon was met by musicans from Harmonien on Strike when he came to open the Bergen international festival today, the police was not on a strike yet though. Norways artist from the ESC contest Christine Guldbarnsen (from Bergen) was there, you can see her in the video and in pic 7 from nettavisen, ofcourse also Coffe King Mayor Herman Friele. Some people had waitied over one and a half hour for Haakon and a couple of older women was wondering where Mette-Marit was....

Here you can see a video

And a flash picture show and article in Norwegian, I have attached only the pictures of Haakon there are more.
