I'm not familiar with that royal family, so I can't answer that question, but the gentleman is Norwegian Development Minister Dag-Inge Ulstein


Here are some photos of day 2 today, April 6:

She is the great-granddaughter of Prince Fatafehi Tu'ipelehake, a son of Queen Salote.

I actually like these - they suit him very well!


I got the impression this was quite a successfull royal trip with lots of tropical images we are usually only used to when it comes to british royalty.

It does seem to have been a successful trip from Haakon indeed. I've loved seeing the photos.

Thanks, Eya, Iceflower, Mybags, Polyesco & Wartenberg7!

The purpose of this visit (which, as all state/official visits, was on the request of the Norwegian government) was to strengthen Norway’s partnership with South Pacific island states, with a view to promoting common interests in the UN and in areas of international cooperation, for example, the oceans and climate change, and peace and security.

Read more about it in English here (link).

BTW: Unlike previous state/official visits, the court/government didn't go so much in pre-detail about this one (which was probably due to security reasons), and the events were therefore not listed in the calendar.


English Royal House articles with lots of information and links to his speeches:

Day 1 (link). Day 2 (link). Day 3 (link). Day 4 (link). Day 5 (link). Day 6 (link).


Media Coverage: Well, although not on par with state/official visits conducted by Their Majesties (either alone or together) or when he is accompanied by The Crown Princess; there have been some articles from The Norwegian News Agency (NTB) and TV2, who sent down two reporters and a photographer.

And now, some may wonder, why doesn't he generate the same media-interest as his parents and wife? Hmm, as I've written before, in Norway we have a tendency (as some commentators said it a while ago) to be more interested in older royals. Nor does it hurt to be charismatic, informal and good at sharing your emotions in public, something both The King, Queen and Crown Princess are widely known for. - And while The Crown Prince is both easygoing and friendly; he is what I would describe as an intellectual (or, according to himself, a ''thinker''), and he can, therefore, come across as a bit ''boring'' when he talks and talks and talks to the media about world-issues. Nor does it help him to be a man under 70, without any grey hair. LOL.

(And to those who think that him not getting as much coverage as his wife has something to do with fashion and such? Nope, apart from the unreliable gossip-mag, ''Se og Hør,'' the Norwegian media doesn't give a damn about stuff like that.)
