Crown Prince Haakon (Crown Prince Regent at these times) Queen Sonja today opened today a new national centre called Wergeland House in Eidsvoll. The house will make room for education and exhibitions about Norwegian history and the demands of democracy. The official ceremony took place in the same room as the Norwegian constitution was signed in 1814. Around 3 000 school kids met the royals and their hosts with flags and cheers.

Im happy we will have some new pictures of Märtha Louise, we have hardly seen any since the birth of Lea Isadora. Hopefully she will also take part in the Swedish royal couples visit on 10-11.06. Princess Ragnhilds husband has said that they will take part, and Princess Astrid also so it would be nice if the intired family could be there

carlota 05-27-2005 10:57 AM

is the concert a gala event? will we see them all dressed in long? :P

The royal family has quit all of their 102 protectorates. They're doing a re-evaluation of how many they can take on, and will take new applications after the evaluation.

The King has been the protector of 42 organisations for the past years, and the Queen has 18. I think it is a matter of cutting down some of the work-load for them, and maybe evening it out a little bit. They're not as young as they once were, and both of them have struggled with health problems in the past years.

It may also give new organizations a chance to get royal protectors.

GömdNatt 06-10-2005 08:42 PM

does anybody know anything about the visit that Haakon and Mette-Marit may or may not pay to the US? I can't find anything about it. Now that she's pregnant they may not come, but in case they do, I'd like to be prepared. All I know is they are supposed to come to the midwest?

HMQueenElizabethII 06-10-2005 08:57 PM

And i also heard about their going to the United Kingdom with the King and the Queen on the Official Visit in October?

I think that it may be postponed. Mette-Marit won't be making the flight across the Atlantic at least, I'm fairly certain.

carlota 06-11-2005 03:19 PM

can't wait until leah isadora's christening!!! :)

well, if it was planned for soon they could probably go. maxima went to kenia and uganda being pregnant and so did mary (thailand) and letizia (japan) in their very first months of pregnancy so if it was planned for soon they will probably go... idon't think there will be any problem with mm's pregnancy.

Yes, just imagine all the crazy/ugly hats we`ll get to see:D , and I wonder what Pia Haraldsen will delight us with:eek:

The USA visit was AFAI can remember planned for end of October beginning of November, she cant make a trans-atlantic plane trip and a 10-14 days trip at that stage in her pregnancy

She has also been to Poland at about the same pregnancy stage as Letizia (Japan) and mary (Thailand\japan)
