Mette-Marit and Sverre Magnus took the plane from Oslo to Zürich but prefered the train from Zürich to Geneva. According to VG Mette-Marit still is not comfterble with flying in small planes abroad. They were also accompanied by a nanny who will take care of Sverre Magnus while she is at the UN

They were met by Norways ambassador to the UN Wegger Christian Strømmen just before midnight.

I was thinking exactly the same, Jess! ;)
I was just wondering: is there a princess who doesn't look great in red? Mette-Marit surely does look stunning! :)

great pictures, she is looking really well !

norwegianne 04-25-2006 07:56 AM

She looks well, but I don't think the jacket looks good on her. It looks a bit like the wrong size.

Mette-Marit and Sverre Magnus at Gardermoen airport yesterday
http://www.aftenposten.no/nyheter/ko...cle1292354.ece

She will also go to the World Congress on AIDS in Toronto which is held 13-18 August 2006
http://www.aids2006.org/
Haakon will probably also go, the position as UNAIDS special representative is for now for two years and both sides can ask to have it prolonged, it is expected that she will make several trips with UNAIDS theese two years, she will especially focus on youth and young grown ups
