I saw Prince Daniel leaning back to check on Princess Estelle. He and Princess Marie-Chantal were both smiling and laughing, so I think Princess Estelle was having a ball. Was that one of Princess Martha Louise's daughters seated next to her?

I'm glad to see Princess Ingrid Alexandra's nonroyal grandmother (and godmother) included as one of the speechmakers.

This is one of the reasons I find her so endearing. I understand, at most, 10 words of Norwegian, but I was so emotional watching her speech just because she and Ingrid were so emotional. Its really lovely to see the obvious love and affection the entire NRF have for each other. I can't wait to read translations of the second set of speeches.

She is a classic beauty with the best complexion of any 18 year old girl I have ever seen.

And yes, depending on the angle I see traces of Haakon, Mette-Marit, and Queen Sonja in I-A's face.

Watching the princess's speech, she is indeed extremely relaxed and comfortable as a public speaker.
Coming from the same cultural area.

I'd say it's a way to express sincerity in a less formal way and make it more personal. I.e. Ingrid Alexandra, the person. Rather than Ingrid Alexandra the princess.
Not least considering that this is a happy celebration and that Ingrid Alexandra is a young person.

The norm for Belgian queens has been to have two working tiaras for major events. Queen Paola had the Nine Provinces plus the Art Deco, while Queen Fabiola had the Nine Provinces plus her wedding gift tiara (with the Wolfers necklace set on a frame as an alternative for lesser events). King Philippe only needs to buy his wife a proper second diadem and she will be fine. It is unfortunate, however, that Mathilde could not inherit any of Queen Elisabeth's significant tiaras, i.e. neither the Cartier nor the Art Deco.

I am afraid too. What you could have such a tiara to Astrid and her daughters, weddinds aside? Elisabeth on the other hand is going to be a queen.
Anyway, let's hope it's just a momentary loan just to give Astrid more variety for the time being...

Queen Fabiola also used the Spanish Wedding tiara which could be broken down into several different looks.

Mathilde has access to both the Nine Provinces Tiara and the Wolfers's Tiara that she inherited from Fabiola.

Both Ingrid and Elisabeth looked stunning, regal and queens-in-waiting.

Why was half the procession looking at the ceiling on the way in to the dinner?

All the royal ladies brought their tiara games -- except for Mary (disappointing). The gown selections were a major fail. I'll give some points to MM and Amalia -- the others were just disappointing repeats or, frankly, ugly.

So very disappointed that Christian didn't attend, especially when Estelle, Oscar, and a toddler attended! I don't understand? This dinner was on a Friday --- he'll be back at school on Monday. What's the deal with that?

They were looking at this (link).

More photos of the ballroom in post 300 BTW.

They were also looking at the choir at the gallery.

Maybe they were looking at the choir above the hall.

Anyone know why Magnus was not wearing orders but Marius Borg was?

Shaman Durek was beaming. I bet his head nearly exploded meeting so many royals

Yup, there was a youth choir on the gallery singing Norwegian folk music (of the formal variety, a traditional upbeat wedding march and another one). Which is not the typical thing to have at these processions, so it was probably quite cool for them all to see.

I believe most of the gowns were repeats (certainly on all of the Norwegians), and deliberately so, both today and yesterday. And the menu was meatless. IA is very environmentally conscious, so it was probably on her request.
