i'm glad they are both going! i'm sure it relates to haakon's involvement with the young global leaders and mm's involvement with unaids.

I like seeing Mette-Marit in light colors, but I think her jacket style does not match the rest of her outfit.
BTW, her scrarf has a little red ribbon sign.:flowers:

I really like these two. I love the causes they stand for. Especially MM (so I forgive her bad clothing choices..although this time she looks nice).
They seem to me genuinely interested in humanitarian work.

On one of these threads MM visited what I think was a half-way house for ex-prostitutes.

Has there been any info about their visit? Whether Haakon or MM made a speech? It seems this event wasnt covered much or got much media attention though its one of those things that we should all be aware of
