Not nessessarily. There is a theory that the blond hairs of the Norman when mixed with the browns of the gaelic and anglo-saxon and their relatives on the Continent, they created red.
Known is that the Scandinavian culture at that time saw blond hair as the best hair-colour. The gods seem to have been blond. So, I would guess that this last thing means that not all scandinavian were blond, just like they are not now.

"We react strongly that you expose one of our children in this way. For us it is very important to protect our children from inappropriate public spotlight because we believe that it can be very stressful and harmful."
Wibecke Lie says: "As far as I know they have not gone out with a public letter to the press before. It is the royal house policy not to comment outside world. The reaction is both strong and very unusual."

The reaction may be unusual, but I would imagine any parent, royal or not, would behave in similar manner when defending their under-age child.
I'm glad Haakon and Mette-Marit went ahead with the letter: a 15-year-old should not be subject to attacks of any kind, especially since he did nothing wrong.

I'm quite surprised at he strong reaction of the couple, tbh I would see Marius having information so openly available as a risk both to security and more importantly privacy. I understand that the couple might see the story as attacking Marius but it constantly said it was not his fault. Personally I think it is rather an over reaction that only draws attention to the story and any security risks.

When were they on official visit abroad last time? And where? It seems they won't go in this year? Or the King and Queen made abroad-visit?

I think the last time they went on an official visit abroad was to Ghana in April 2011. I can't recall that anything was said about this year. I don't think there is planned an official visit abroad this year, but that's just guessing.

King and Queen made a state visit to Poland in May this year.

I found many pics in this forum, you should view all threads. Much time, but you can find interesting pictures. And you should search in photoagencies, like ZIMBIO, Getty Images, APA, PPE-Agency... The Scanpix is a norwegian pictureagency, there can you find many - also private - pictures. Or you can search in norwegian internetsides like Aftenposten, VG, NRK asw... Good luck!

I think they are good friends - they also attended a concert of Madonna some time ago.

I think Gwyneth Paltrow and Mette-Marit have been friends for many years actually. I also know that Kate Hudson is friends with Mette-Marit too. I even think Madonna is part of the circle :-)

Yes the Normans were Vikings originally too ....

Actually thinking about it the red hair is a Scott's Gaelic thing ....
