I'm not happy about the outfit, too dark overall and the hat is completely over the top.

I agree with you Hannelore. While the outfit is lovely, it looked more suitable for a night ceremony. It was too glitzy and too dark, a nice peach or blue color would've been better. I don't like the silver accessories or the "hat" either.


Haakon looked handsome.

I concur about the outfit. The hat just doesn't make any sense to me.

Mette-Marit seems to be very fond of non-hat hats. I personally am not fond of such hats -- I like hats that are actually hats, instead of something that looks like a bird's nest or an actual bird that is stuck to your head.

I was watching a bit of the wedding coverage on CNN and Anderson Cooper didn't seem too fond of these hats either. Mette-Marit's special "creation" was not among the ones shown during the coverage, but he made me laugh when he commented on "if twigs and grass are what constitute as hats in this country." Later on there was a woman in the church whose hat Anderson Cooper said reminded him of "fungi" growing on her head.

I also concur with the hat. I'm not fond of hats in general, especially not ones that look as if they could poke someone's eye out! It looks dangerous. As far as the outfit is concerned, I think it was nice, but I think it would of been better suited for a different occasion other than a wedding.

Norwegian tradition (also sometimes scandinavian), the person wears the left glove and holds the right glove in the left hand so that she can shake hand with the bare hand.

I for one love the suit that she wore to the wedding today along with the silver purse, shoes, pin, etc.. but I believe that the outfit should have been saved for an evening occasion. I did not like that hat at all.

Wow, that "hat" certainly is something special. The shoes don't go with the outfit very well, but I personally don't like light shoes when everything else is dark. Haakon looked great. Thanks everyone for the photos, and I too, learnt something new today (the glove). :)

I actually liked the hat, though I do think that the princess has been favoring hats like these.

And my two cents worth
... the navy blue outfit was all that great.
... same for the hat.
... Haakon seemed off his feed, dour, not his usual sunny self (perhaps concern about his father?)
... what glove?

From the look of the cover, Se og Hør has a story about Mette-Marits "Dramatic" weightloss, and also about Ari gaining weight (They do know what is important in life) The picture is from her visit to the Fountainhouse around the time the King was admittet to hospital for the second time


****
Also two more picture from Haakon and Mette-Marits visit to a day center for HIV positives some weeks ago

*****
Yesterday Haakon again visited NRK and the TV action before he went to the hospital to see the King, the Kings stay in hospital has been prolonged and the doctors says he will not be released before over the weekend
