Baby Ingrid is getting so big! She is adorable. She looks a lot like her cousin Maud Angelica!

Thanks for the pictures everybody. I always like to see Mette-Marit in Norway's national costume/outift. It really is quite beautiful and makes me a bit sad that I am not Nordic to have one either.

It's a shame that Martha Louise no longer makes these balcony appearances as well. She always has such lovely outfits for these occasions, too.

Did Martha Louise, Ari and Maud Angelica perhaps participate in National Day events elsewhere in Norway?

Märtha Louise, Ari Behn and Maud Angelica were not celebrating in public. They celebrated somewhere unknown in private.



I love Mette-Marit's bunad. (Okay, mainly because it's from my area of the country, even if I have another version.) If you notice the silver hanging on her belt? That's a signifier that she's married. Unmarried woman just have black belts with only a silver buckle. (http://gfx.dagbladet.no/dinside/2001/05/16/mette250.jpg Mette-Marit when she had just received her bunad, 14-15 year old. from Dagbladet.)

Thanks for the info norwegianne.

From the pictures Lena posted, there was a close up of the skirt on Mette-Marit's bunad that was quite lovely. Beautiful detailing on it, yet simple at the same time.

... So this silver signifier ... a good way to let everyone else know that you are single and "available" or otherwise single and ... :innocent:

Yep, at least in my district (which happens to be the same as Mette-Marit in this case). Though I don't know how many boys/men who know about it... at least until after the change is a fact.

There are also headdresses, blouses, etc... that signify single/married in other districts.

I found this just now. I have a suspicion that it might be among one of those that can't be opened. As you can see, both King Harald and CP Haakon has taken of their hats, this indicates that the crowd below is singing the national anthem.
