Haakon and Mette-Marit at the Kvalvaag Wedding
 
13 SEPTEMBER 2004

Norway's Crown Prince Haakon and his wife Mette-Marit made for a striking couple when they attended a friend's wedding at the weekend. The princess turned heads in a floor-length white coat with beige trim, while her husband was looking equally impressive in his country's traditional dress.

The royal couple were among the guests at the nuptials of Haakon's old friend Hans Olav Kvalvaag and his bride Camelia Smith. And romance was clearly in the air, as the pair were spotted holding hands and embracing on more than one occasion.

After the ceremony, the guests were escorted to an old sailing ship which ferried them to a lavish reception in the town of Hvalstand Bad. Ever the gentleman, Haakon removed his jacket and wrapped it around his pretty wife's shoulders to protect her from the chilly weather.

I know we do discuss Mette-Marit's outfits quite a lot... but there's just something about Haakon's in the last pictures. I wish he would wear bunad more often. Of course he has to be impartial, but still.


Guys in Norwegian National Costumes are... well, hot, in my opinion.

Mette-Marit should have worn her costume as well, though they wouldn't have matched.

Yes, Haakon looks great in a bunad. Why don't we start a thread on Norwegian Royals wearing bunads. What do you think norwegianne? In the main forum so that we could include everyone?
