NRK.no reports that the visit will go as planned, but that there might be changes to the program in the last minute, here is the agenda translated from the calendar. This is one of those "meet the locals" visit they started right after their wedding, mainly to smal places which does not usually get royal visits

The paper says the weathers is nice (for now;) ) and that Mette-Mait seemed in good shape when they started their two day visit in the county of Buskerud today

http://dt.no/apps/pbcs.dll/article?A.../50920001/1001

Edit: DT reports that Mette-Marit will not attend the closed dinner for 40 people in the evening, but she will take part in all the activities during the day. Haakon willl attend the supper alone.

Good to hear that the Crown Princess is feeling well enough to go on this visit trip! I'm sure Crown Prince Haakon will manage the dinner without her fine, even though it might be a bit boring for her to stay in the hotel while he is out on official business.

I hope Haakon brings her a piggy bag!! :p It is good that she is allowed to rest and not forced to enter a tiring event like that. Hope she still has something nice to do and a good cook to prepare her a dinner!

Mette-Marit looks pale. I'm not sure if it is the light, or how she is currently, but Haakon looks very tanned next to her in that last picture.

Thanks for the pictures, Larzen

thanks for the photos! was great seeing them after such a long time. purple seems to suit her...
nice that her belly is now showing. it seems quite big for a 3 ( ? ) months pregnant woman...

kwanfan 09-20-2005 02:11 PM

Nice photos. It's wonderful to see Mette-Marit again. Is her dress purple? It looks like it. I think she looks good in purple, especially dark purple like the gown she wore during the Japanese State Visit. Thanks for the photos.

lil Princess 09-20-2005 02:15 PM

hei hei ja ja thanks so much for all the Pictures!! Mette-Marit is so beautiful and radiant all the time, I just love her smiles at everyone, she is truly Happy!! ;)

She due in December and is 5-6 months pregnant. Mette-Marit really looks beautiful!

If anyone has pictures of Eiker (they're supposed to go tomorrow for the cheese farm/factory), would you post them? That's exactly where my g-grandfather was born!

norwegianne 09-20-2005 04:01 PM

She also looks fairly pregnant to be about 3 months away from due date. Of course I realize that these things are individual, but in this picture http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hmentid=199052, I think she looks nearly as pregnant as Mary does currently. But, of course, not one pregnancy is identical.

It's too bad that this has been a difficult pregnancy for her.

Mette-Marit: - Formen er forbausende bra
Fullt program i to kommuner under fylkesbesøket i Buskerud tirsdag tok ikke knekken på kronprinsesse Mette-Marit, som selv karakteriserer formen som «forbausende bra».

Mette-Marit: - In surprisingly good shape

A packed schedule in two municipalities during the visit to Buskerud County Tuesday didn't break Crown Princess Mette-Marit, who herself characterized her shape as surprisingly good.

She is very happy to be moving about again, but just in case, the pregnant Crown Princess skipped the dinner hosted by the municipality at Lampeland Hotel in Flesberg Tuesday night.

"This pregnancy has been a bit steeper/heavier than the others. I've been more tired, had to take it easy and take more precautions," she told during a meeting with the press Tuesday afternoon.

Happy Crown Prince.

But the husband expresses much joy in having her along, again. "This is much better than the alternative," he laughs when the press asks.

Due date pushed ahead

Crown Princess Mette-Marit also revealed that the due date for the birth has been pushed forward in time, to the end of November. But she didn't want to reveal a specific date.

The Crown Prince and Princess didn't want to reveal whether they plan to have a home birth or if the birth, also this time, would happen at the national hospital.

"That's a very personal question, and I'm not planning on answering it," says the mother-to-be.

Pale, but together.

A bit pale after several Norwegian miles on narrow roads, but presumably in good shape, the Crown Princess arrived with the Crown Prince in Buskerud Tuesday.

The visit is the Crown Princess' first official assignment in more than three weeks.
