ATHENS, Greece: Norway's Crown Prince Haakon (L) speaks with Norwegian Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik prior to the start of the opening ceremony of the 2004 Olympic Games at the Olympic stadium in Athens, 13 August 2004. Some 10,000 athletes representing 202 countries will march together in front of 70,000 spectators at the opening ceremony, kicking off a fortnight of sporting competition that is costing 7.2 billion USD to stage.

Personal note: I saw him cheering when the Norwegian team came into the stadium. Cute the way his suit matched their's! And even more handsome on television than in pictures! :p

Question Haakon at the Olympic Games in Athens.

I, too, was thrilled, Alexandria, upon seeing the changes that have taken place in Haakon, as he walked into the opening ceremonies. He looked so confident and handsome and I imagine Mette-Marit and their daughter, Ingrid, has added to this newfound confidence. IMHO, she's provided him some stability along with lots of happiness. I'm hoping Mette-Marit will be joining him there sometime soon. Isn't her "maternity leave" coming to an end pretty soon.

As far as I know, and I use the official programme on the royal site as a source, Haakon is the only one of the Norwegian royals who will be in Athens for the Olympics.

Mette-Marit seems to have come some out of her maternity leave, she's got a few things on her programme this month, as well as the tour to Finnmark in the end of August.

Norwegian waffles seems to be mandatory whenever Norwegians gather in foreign countries...

Loving your Olympic coverage of Haakon cheering on the Norwegian athletes Mandy! Thanks so much for all your hard work.

Three of my own to add of Haakon looking not only enthusiastic for the Norwegian team, but trim and athletic himself, too! :p

Haakon og Tutu hyllet Fredskorpset

Kronprins Haakon og nobelprisvinner Desmond Tutu hyllet fredskorpsets innsats for solidaritet mellom mennesker i nord og sør under et stjernespekket seminar i Oslo Rådhus fredag.


Mer enn 1100 mennesker deltok i åpningen av Fredskorpset rådsmøte, blant dem kronprinsen, Sør-Afrikas erkebiskop Tutu, Zambias første president Kenneth Kaunda og utviklingsminister Hilde Frafjord Johnson. Også andre kjente fjes fra norsk samfunnsliv var invitert, blant dem Celina Midelfart, Anne Enger Lahnstein, Are Kalvø, Kjartan Fløgstad og Morten Krogvold.

- Fredskorpset bringer mennesker fra ulike kulturer sammen på en kraftfull måte. Folk føres sammen for arbeid og levedyktig utvikling. Av dette kan alle lære noe av, sa kronprinsen.

Desmond Tutu, som fikk Nobel fredspris for sin kamp mot apartheidregimet i 1984, hyllet Norge som sitt «annet hjemland». Han takket for at Norge har beholdt oppmerksomheten på Sør-Afrika etter raseskilleregimets fall.

Over 1100 personer fra alle samfunnssektorer tar del i nord-sør-arrangementet The Oslo North-South Forum som åpnet fredag.

Fredskorpsets idé er å bidra på en helt konkret måte til kulturell forståelse og engasjement for en mer rettferdig fordeling mellom nord og sør.

Gjennom Fredskorpset kan norske virksomheter utveksle ansatte på mellom 22 og 35 år med land i sør.

Tanken er at utveksling av unge mennesker på tvers av landegrensene skal bidra til større grad av likeverd, gjensidighet, åpenhet og solidaritet mellom mennesker i nord og sør.

I perioden fra 2001 til 2002 er 671 unge nordmenn sendt til de fleste kanter av verden, de fleste i Afrika, Sør-Amerika og det sørlige Asia.

It's funny the Crown Prince once spoke out against the use of such technology regarding the privacy.

But alas this is a public function, it's free game.

They will probably visit states like Minnesota (large Norwegian-American population), Wisconsin, Iowa, and maybe North and South Dakota.

Thank you for translating the article. It's very much appreciated, and same with all the other information everyone has provided.

Do you think M-M and H will come to Australia sometime? I would really love to "meet" them.

Thank you. This is unexpected. Anyway, I´m sure they will make it to Australia sometime. 2005 is a busy year for Norwegians. Maybe in 2006. Then you can meet them and tell us all about it!
