Thanks, Queen!

I’m sure this has been said before but Haakon as he has got older is so much more attractive.

Looking forward to Oscars glamour tonight as well!! Will Meghan be there??!!

SenecaFallsRedux Sun 09-Feb-20 12:03:09

I do like Haakon. Like his father, he insisted on marrying for love in spite of opposition in certain quarters. And I think that time has proved that they both made excellent choices.

Thanks Queen.

(Have tried to leave MN so many times but, you know, this thread...)

Yes @SenecaFallsRedux. When she was a single mum working as a waitress in Oslo would M-M have ever dreamed she'd end up Crown Princess if Norway?

QueenOfTheAndals Sun 09-Feb-20 12:11:22

If she is @hopeishere then we can certainly discuss what she's wearing on this thread. But let's leave the other kind of talk to the Megxit threads!

Ooh new thread, thanks Queen

I agree that the portrait of Max doesn't really capture her 'glow', I think she looks a bit weary in it.

Re Mette Marit I remember watching a documentary of king Olav, CP Haakon's grandfather. All of his various grandchildren were interviewed and sat remembering things about him. One of my favourite stories was that apparently he was a bit afraid of the Queen Mother. They had both been widowed in middle age (around 50) and apparently there was speculation they would make a suitable couple. She was a bit keen, he was not and tried to avoid certain situations and used his grandchildren as shields (they were all fondly giggling at these memories). Apparently she was in Norway at some point for some official thing or other and one way or another her wardrobe and hats had arrived and while the grandkids were waiting for the great Lady herself they amused themselves with trying on all her hats grin

Thank you QueenoftheAndals for the new thread.

I loved the Celebrity Fashion threads . They were great for the Oscar dresses watching.

King Olav, the fashion talk starts around minute 19.30ish but the whole programme is very funny.

Well it's certainly been said by @frugalkitty as she peeks into her airing cupboard! grin

Thanks for the new thread Queen.

Thank you Queen.

If anyone wants to discuss Oscars style then I've made a thread for that.

The glitz and glamour of the Oscars...

Oh yes MotherofPearl he's looking mighty fine grin

InvisibleWomenMustBeRead Sun 09-Feb-20 17:43:30

Checking in - need more glamorous dresses as there haven't been enough recently!

frugalkitty Sun 09-Feb-20 17:51:26

Invisible I agree, the royal ladies are not providing us with enough gown-age!

Maybe we could play a game with the Oscar frocks.....which gown would suit which royal lady?

Tootreeticki Sun 09-Feb-20 18:34:51

This would be why he needed his grandchildren as protection...
