Does he speak English or Spanish? What other languages he speak?
Thank you for the pictures Paty! He is so handsome.

YES! Very handsome! When he was younger he looked too boyish and a little girly. He's gorgeous now.:wub:
This seems like a very interesting trip. It looks like he is enjoying himself and it is nice to see him taking part in a variety of activities, not just the typical press conferences and government meetings.

Thanks for the great pictures and info.
Great pictures Paty! He looks so nice in the suit that he wore to the seminar on aquculture.
Maybe the Crown Princess is just covering with a stomach flu. Perhaps she is hiding something else.. It would be wonderful if another pregnancy was announced.
Can some one tell us what it said!
Haakon møtt med protester og politi

It's about a couple of visits to aqua culture business that the CP was visiting but got cancelled. He went to a seminar someplace else, and was met by demonstrants and police. The demonstrants said that the CP as goodwill ambassador, should consider human rights and how these aqua culture business treats the indigenous people of Chile. The indigenous people claim that the fish farming ruins the natural fish stock and thus the way of life for them. It also mention work conditions and the low salaries for the people working in the aqua culture business.
Thank you KikkiB!

Funny, that thought crossed my mind too! Would be nice.....
I thought the exact same thing! Maybe there will be an announcement?:)

It could also actually just be the flu, since it's flu season in Norway right now, and there has been a tummy bug "epidemics" going since Christmas.
