Hello Josefine,
The hats are called "kokoshniks" or Russian festive head-dresses.

thank you for the help
why did they were kokoshniks

norwegianne 12-29-2003 07:31 PM

I just love Märtha Louise&#39;s dress. It&#39;s so extremely appropriate for the situation, and the kind of dress every girl probably dreams of.

It is not 100% correct that it is a kokoshniks.
Norway dont crown their king/queen anymore, but they are given somekind of
blessing from the church. There is also no other royal attending this service.
Therefore will the royal women only wear a hat or as the queen and princess a
diadem.

Torkel 05-12-2004 06:31 AM

Queen Sonja and Princess Märtha-Louise wore specially designed hats - not diadems. The Queen&#39;s hat had the form of a kokoshnik (a traditional Russian headpiece), but this has no further symbolism. As no other Norwegian Queens had been part of this ceremony, Queen Sonja could decide how she would be dressed. The hat was thus designed the way her Majesty wanted it to be desgned.
Both her dress and the hat had pearls sewn onto the fabric.

I believe these dresses were later donated to a museum here in Norway.

so how lonh has he been king now

Why didn't Haakon wear any uniforms and orders. Strange, since Märtha did. He looked quite "boring", if you know what I mean. He should be dressed in uniforms I think, to match the rest of the family.

Princess Astrid and Princess Ragnhild also wore white dresses like Sonja and Märtha, so there were 4 beautiful white dresses seen that day. Anyone have pics of Astrid and Ragnhild?

The reason that Haakon didn't wear any orders or an uniform is that he wasn't 18 years old yet (he turned 18 June 20, 1991, the enthronement was in January if I remember correctly). And to wear uniform and orders you have to be of age. I think the same rule applies for girls and tiaras. And that's why he was "boringly" dressed.

And a little story from the tv-transmitted "pomp and circumstance" service in the Nidaros cathedral, CP Haakon had put his hat underneath his chair and he forgot to bring it with him when he left the service! I remember that it was commented in the media a lot.

was there no royal guests

cristine 06-21-2005 01:40 PM

No crown, no royal guests... Seems a quite boring enthronement for me.

By the way, Haakon was a cute teenager prince.

Mandy 06-23-2005 12:19 PM

Harald's enthronement ceremony took place fourteen years ago today at Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, on June 23, 1991.

The lack of crown/coronation was done in a law from around 1906, where it put an end to coronations in Norway. Hence, no crown. The Norwegian enthronements since then have generally been much more low-key affairs, as, from time to time, there have been an opposition to spending much money on a very glam affair. That was the case with King Olav's enthronement, and since that was the first of them, tradition was somewhat created for the next there.

TatoïPalace 08-31-2005 11:37 AM

Did any foreign royals attended this ceremony?

Royal Fan 11-10-2005 02:27 PM

So when Haakon becomes King this is basically what we will see :)
