I think it's extra evident next to King Harald. I mean, you wouldn't notice it the same way if she was standing just beside Sonja.

Thanks for the pictures Dennism. Both Sonja and Mette-Marit are wearing new dresses at the gala. Very lovely!

Dennism 09-21-2004 05:08 PM

You´re welcome. They are indeed lovely.

Alisa 09-21-2004 05:27 PM

Beautiful! Both ladies look incredibly lovely and incredibly regal! :)

Great photos. I really like the tiara Mette-Marit is wearing. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the pictures!

During the welcoming of the Italian president and his wife I thought that Queen Sonja looked wonderful. The light blue jacket with the black belt and skirt and hat ... the Queen was a delight. Mette-Marit however looked like she was heading for a funeral. And the hat was dreadful, I thought.

But the Queen looked radiant in her red gala dress and Mette-Marit redeemed herself in my eyes in the bright pink gown. (Didn't I say yesterday that fuschia is always the way to my heart?!)

I din't like the black suit Mette Marit wore!! But she looked lovely at the Gala, as well and Queen Sonja!

The Queens dress is not new, she has worn it many times, first time in Spain in 1995. (Good on her for fitting in to the same dress almost ten years later;))
