A hot candidate on the lists for many years now, Finland's former President Martti Ahtisaari wins the Nobel Peace Prize 2008! :flowers: It was just announced in Oslo, some minutes ago (last year the current Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee does this, he is resigning because his party has lost support in the Storting and will be replaced for next year). The motivation reads:


"for his important efforts, on several continents and over more than three decades, to resolve international conflicts"

The CP couple always attends. Last year (and the year before?) MM also brought Marius with her.

KikkiB 12-09-2008 07:58 AM

As far as I can gather from the Royal house's official website (, the programme is as following;

The King, the Queen and the CP couple will attend the official ceremony at 13:00 in the Town Hall, and The King and the Queen will attend the official dinner later that day.

The CP couple will attend the Nobel Concert.

According to GDP Papers', prince Friso of the Netherlands and princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau will also attend the ceremony. Apparently Mabel worked with mr.Ahtisaari in the past.

Lena 12-10-2008 05:29 AM

Mr. Ahtisaari was part of the Mafia? :eek: :angel: Just kidding ;)
So at least Mabel could replace Mette Marit as worst dressed Royal at the Norwegian Nobel Ceremony ;)

Mette-Marit wears a light purple suit today and a (I think) recycled purple hat-piece.
