Did the president of Finland change? After seeing the title of the thread I was visualising another misadventure of the Finnish first gentleman with Mette-Marit..:flowers:..Anyways haakon would have hurled him out of the room..lol..:smile:

vkrish 10-08-2012 02:05 PM

If you check the link I posted at the post of the program, you can see that crown princess Mette Marit visits Keyserløkka Kindergarten in Oslo on the occasion of World Mental Health Day, while crown prince Haakon is with the president and the First Lady in Tromsø.

ok..I just saw the events posted..12th has only three in that..Fine..I thought she will be given a mini vacation as she just returned from her NYC tour..

vkrish 10-08-2012 02:29 PM

But somehow these European State visits never intrigue me..All those countries are so small..Just like going from one state to another in US or India (latter is a better example..different language and culture for each state)... Especially among Scandivanian nations..or among Balkans..too close..
Though royals do always add up colour and dignity..one good thing..
