Thank you everybody for the gorgeous pictures!:flowers:
I had seen some of them before, but most are new for me....and never paid attention to how pretty she was! A very cute-looking woman, she had lovely eyes.

And, goodness, how much I love those 60´s fashions! I feel many of those dressed could be worn today and would look great too...in fact, I would love to have more than two of them :p

I hadn't seen any of those, either - thanks for posting! :flowers: I recognize the long pink dress, but it's from a different photo shoot, because I remember pictures of her wearing it next to Harald in uniform.
Yeah, that's exactly the one I mean.

And I LOVE the one of them looking at each other - very cute! :flowers: Sonja's definitely standing on something, though...she's nowhere near that close to his height!
:previous: Wonderful, thanks so much! :flowers:

The pictures with Princess Anne are priceless - I wonder what occasion (or party theme?) it was :lol:

The love and happiness shines through in all these photos! I see both Royal grandchildren in Sonja. I had never realized what a stunner she was back in the day either.
The court released some private pictures of Harald and Sonja:
The young couple before they got engaged:

In the top two photos it could be Martha Louise, didn't realise she looks so much like her mother.
