  1. Yes, they look very nice indeed! Were the Crown Prince couple out of town? I often wonder why doesn’t Princess Martha Louise doesn’t attend these events any more. Ever since her divorce she seems to shy away from all these social engagements.

    1. This is the first time this Banquet has happened since I started the Royal Watcher, so it was a lovely surprise for me as when I saw this dinner on the schedule I expected it to be suits and cocktail dresses! The Crown Prince is in Colombia while Mette Marit hasn’t really attended any official events since the New Year! Princess Martha Louise usually attended only Banquets for foreign royals during her marriage or family events, so it is quite rare to see her! I am excited to see Princess Ingrid Alexandra at these types of events in a few years!
