They are indeed 'equivalent' in status, however, that makes it even weirder that Märtha Louise was given the House order and not the Order of the Crown...

The House Order and the Crown Order are effectively the same. For some reasons Queen Juliana wanted to distinguish in granting the House Order to Dutch compatriots (fully Orange riband) and the Crown Order to Foreigners (Orange riband lined with the Dutch tricolore). For the rest these are identical.

Such medals are mostly given to meritorious staff working for the King or his House. The equivalent is given to -for an example- members of the Norwegian Household, like functionaries whom have actively been involved in organizing this State Visit.

Where was the Crown Prince during the Norway State Dinner November 9-11, 2021? I see that is why Princess Martha Louise was filling in,

Indeed. Not only did Sonja repeat her 80th birthday gala dress, Mette Marit also wore the dress she first wore that evening (she has repeated it since), and Maxima also wore the sapphire tiara she had worn for the 80th birthday gala.

Was Princess Astrid unable to attend?

It was really nice to see Princess Martha Louise present and hope the Crown Prince is feeling better!

See previous posts. The crown prince had a cold and stayed home out of concern for the others.

And Märtha Louise was already scheduled to take part before Haakon decided on the last moment that he unfortunately wasn't able to join in.

Interesting that none of the two Queens opted for a hat, a pretty standard accessoire during State Visits.


Correction - now I see Queen Máxima had a matching hair accesoire.

That was a strange appointment... As far as i know, no other Crown Princely couple has ever recived the highest dutch order before accession..... Not even The Prince of Wales recived it during the dutch state visit to UK in 2018...

It has usually been The Order of Orange-Nassau for the hereditary couple (Charles does have it but for some reason always opts for the lower Order of the Crown instead when a dutch order is required)

It will be interesting to see during a dutch state visit to Sweden (wich can’t be that far away) what dutch order The Crown Princess and Prince Daniel will recive...

I hope Princess Astrid’s abscence have nothing to do with bad health.... She is usually always present during state visits...

But then she attended the Gala Dinner for the Sorting 2 weeks ago. Perhaps she had other Plans for these days.

The Prince of Wales indeed is Ridder Grootkruis in de Orde van Oranje-Nassau and the previous Princess of Wales was Dame grootkruis in the Kroonorde (Huisorde van Oranje), see picture. I assume the wearing of the lower Kroonorde at Dutch events (see picture) probably is a little gaffe by the British Court. Like Prince Philip by accident appeared with a Order from Congo (formerly a Belgian colony) at the funeral of King Baudouin (see picture).


I have searched for the Royal Decree concerning the granting of Ridder (Dame) grootkruis in de Orde van de Nederlandse Leeuw to Crown Prince Frederik and -Princess Mary of Denmark. The search function on overheid.nl says that original Royal Decrees contain recommendations or considerations of personal and private nature. Therefore the reason for granting an Order is sometimes in the discretion of the King (even when this is a State Order) and not published.

Frankly I still want to know if someone insisted Harald had to learn posh English because his American accent wasn't considered suitable. (I love Harald dearly — and I am American — but American Harald sounds less like FDR and more like he belongs in a 40's gangster flick. )
(Albert of Monaco's accent, that ain't.)

So also Mette-Marit adheres the three ensembles a day regime during State Visits. I hope Máxima taked note and returns to it too. When she escorted Beatrix she followed her three ensembles a day regime. Probably the Dutch whirlwind schedule leaves no option but that was the royal couple's own "fault" to cram so much in a program.

Maybe he picked it up spending more time in England or around the British, as he did in the USA.

I don’t hear anything unusual in his speech you posted. He just sounds like an English (American) speaking Norwegian man to me. From the way you described him, I was expecting him to sound like Joe Pesci I was actually disappointed

Anyway, you for explaining! *♀️

I LOVE seeing the Crown Princess participating in this engagement! Sad she wasn´t there for the concert, and even more sad the Crown Prince has got a flu...! I hope he has a speedy recovery!

So, nobody from the royal family was at the concert? Probably Haakon was scheduled to attend? If it was too much for his wife, it would have been nice if Märtha Louise could have stepped in.
