I love MM's hat. I am glad she recycled it. She first wore it for the 100th coronation celebrations.
I also really like the Queen's coat (but I don't like the dress underneath it ;)).

I love the Queen's Tiara hairdo. It's great to see her reycling this beautiful dress.
MM's dress is new. Looks lovely. I am not sure what to think about her hairdo.

Did Mette Marit not wear a tiara this time? I could not see one, but the pictures weren't all that large either, so that might be why.

I quite like the Queen's outfit today. The jacket is lovely. I don't like MM's old suit. It's too shapeless.

Paty 10-15-2008 11:06 AM

Is that her weding tiara?

Her Majesty...What a great avatar!!
