New Portraits of the Norwegian Royal Family - Released in January 2011
 
I hope this is the right place to post it:

New official photographs have been published of Their Majesties King Harald and Queen Sonja and of Their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit
kongehuset.no - Official photographs

There are 18 pictures. I especially love the black and white pictures! In the photo where Mette-Marit wears the gown she wore in NY last year she looks like an angel. I am not so fond of the photos of Queen Sonja.

Me neither. Her dress is not attractive at all.

I agree that MM looks beautiful in all of these - love all the dresses she chose for this photo shoot! And her hair and her make-up look just perfect. I can't choose a favorite photo of her!

For some reason the one of Harald and Haakon together amuses me, just because they're in the exact same uniform. ;)

The dress Sonja is wearing is the dress she wore for Margrethe's birthday dinner last April. I recall that most posters didn't like it then, either, but apparently she didn't get the memo. I think it makes her look like a wedding cake. :lol: I'm also not crazy about her hair in the formal shots - it looks sort of severe - plus her face looks a little airbrushed. So pretty much a miss on all sides from Sonja. The more casual photos of her are better - the yellow suit is all right, and her face and hair are more natural. The one of Harald and Sonja together by the window is nice. She's starting to look older, but I suppose she still looks younger than 73.

I really like the black and white photos of MM and Haakon. I also really like the picture of MM sitting by the window in the pale pink dress.

Always good to see new official photographs and these are beautiful.

Mette Marit looks stunning!
My favorite is the black and photo of her.

Very beautiful pictures =) I love that Mette-Marit is wearing different dresses. Great that we don't only see one or two photos but so many ;)

I was so excited when I saw these pictures. Mette-Marit looks amazing. I also really love the black and white picture of Haakon. I wish Sonja hadn't that dress, though. I hate it so much. Still, I do really love the picture of her and Mette-Marit together. Two of my favorite ladies.

Great portraits! I especially love the pictures of MM wearing the beautiful soft pink gown. The Queen should haven chosen a nicer dress (but it could also have been worse;)).

Marika86 01-22-2011 04:20 AM

Wow...fantastic photos! All the dresses wore by Mette-Marit are amazing but my favourite is the soft pink. I also like the suit that Queen Sonja wore

Indeed she might choose something in yellow ;)
I adore this photos, everyone looks great. Of course my favorite is MM, she's stunning.

It seems Mette lost weight. She looks beatiful!

nascarlucy 01-22-2011 08:22 AM

I loved the pictures. Very nice pictures My favorite was photo 17 one of several pictures of Mette-Marit and Prince Haakon. I loved the gown she was wearing. Also liked the white outfit the Queen was wearing.

I'm not so fond of the pictures with the photoshopped grey background. It looks harsh and artificial. Mette-Marit looks stunning in all the pictures. I think the pictures of Mette-Marit in the light pink gown and her wedding tiara were made before the Gala for the Stortinget on Oct. 21st. At that event she wore the same jewellery and outfit, and her hairstyles seems to be exactly the same.
