The Norwegian royal family (the King and Queen, Crown Prince and Crown Princess, Princess Ingrid Alexandra, and Princess Astrid) continued celebrations for the 200th anniversary of the constitution with a visit to the Norwegian Parliament.And we have another candidate for Mette-Marit's best of the year! This is one well-chosen coat, the detailing calling to mind the trim of the bunad national dress (though it is actually Valentino, from the Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear collection, as seen on the runway above right). And no one does these simple hats better than M-M. Special recognition also goes to Ingrid Alexandra, though. She's wearing a heart pendant which was a gift from her grandmother, Queen Sonja, when she was born. A sweet gesture, a family connection, and a jewel all in one.
Also, the 17th of May has passed - and that means National Day in Norway, and that means the actual bunad outfits come out to play! Doesn't get much better than that.
