GOSH! MM looks like a matron, really ugly and fat!
That is so disrespectful!! She isn't fat at all. I know she hasn't size zero, but rarely anyone has and you don't need to. You can't judge people by that! She seems to be a lovely mother, wife and princess. That is all that matter.
I'm not disrespectful and I'm not judging her as a person, just giving my honest opinion on the way she looks, what I see may be different from what you see, but I'm entitled to my opinion and free to express it.
She isn't ugly nor fat and that dress would flatter no one (as most typical/regional gowns).
she is not fat, not skinny, beautiful .
She is a large woman, and she is not particularly good looking, but I agree with the second comment in that one shouldn't judge people on their appearance, but on their acts.
True. Not fat and ugly at all. MM is a beautiful lady with a normal weight.
I disagree, that is not a normal weight, MM is fat and that is a fact. As for beautiful that is for each individual to decide, as we all have different views on beauty. In my opinion her face is just very plain, not ugly, not beautiful, just average.
Could you please tell us who is a beautiful princess for you?
Hi Marie, in my opinion beautiful royals are Charlene of Monaco (she is stunning), Madeleine of Sweden, the duchess of Cambridge, Queen Rania, Queen Letizia, and Victoria of Sweden, but this is my personal view. As I said in my comment we all have different views on beauty.
Madeleine is gorgeous, she is the most beautiful princess in Europe, followed by Kate Middleton.Mette Merit is not beautiful, and she is much older, but it's not always about the beauty, there are other qualities which are equally important.
My favourite royals are Queen Maxima and Queen Letiza, both of them are very beautiful and elegant. Having said that, I don't think Princess Mette-Marit is ugly at all, she is nothing out of the ordinary, but calling her ugly is going to far, and not nice at all.
MM is not fat, the other Princesses are thin , slim. MM has some kilo s more the last year, but the are also human people like us.Maybe you prefer the skinny princess from Spain? A matter of taste.
Are you serious? You just sound like a bully... Really.
Exactly, stop bullying us! Like MM I'm overweight, and it hurts me when people make such a horrible comments.We are human beings, and we have feelings. I'm sure MM thinks the same as me, she is not big by choice, it could be her genes, or her metabolism, so please be more understanding and stop criticising us.
WOW! She is massive!
True, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I, for example, don't find Sofia Hellqvist attractive (but I recognize she has a nice figure). I also think Letizia now looks pretty but is not naturally a pretty woman. And while this might be childish thinking, perhaps MM is not as pretty as Kate Middleton but she sure has a better looking husband and there must be something special about her in the eyes of her husband. To say that she is huge or massive is quite harsh. She is not skinny, she is overweight but she is not massive nor obese. She also has a strange body (perhaps broad shoulders/back but so does Kate). This dress is really not a flattering piece. Only a stick thin person would look good in it, yet she decided to honor her traditions and wear that instead of a sparkly couture outfit. BTW I don't think they had a good photographer :p
I agree with the ones who think MM looks big and ugly, and also agree with the comment about the other royals, Charlene, Letizia, Kate, Maxima, Victoria, and Madeleine, all of them are beautiful, with great style, and personality. MM doesn't look stylish or elegant, she looks vulgar, very common. Sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but this is how I see it.
VULGAR,? it depend only on a few kilos, she is still beautiful. Sofia Hellqvist has not the face of a princess, for me herr face it not rich, not nobel.
Who is Sofia Hellqvist? Why people keep mention her in here? Is she a Norwegian princess?
BEAUTIFUL? She looks like a man with those hard features!
Agreed morgane. Sofia is cheap looking and quite ugly. She has a great body, but that is it. Of course it would seem she has gotten everywhere solely due to her body.
Sofia Hellqvist is the woman marrying Prince Carl of Sweden. They are right, she is nothing special, she has very bad teeth and she looks very trashy, cheap.
Some of the statements above are one of the primary reasons why I think comment sections on blogs should be disabled. It is horrible how a beautiful Christmas celebration has de-evolved into some bitter and nasty comments about a person's weight and physical appearance.
Although I agree with you in that some of the comments above are bitter and nasty I disagree on disabled them. It's called freedom of speech and as we live in democratic societies we are all entitled to express our views. Sarah
Difference of opinion is one thing but this nastiness and ignorance just takes the joy right out of the blog. Democratic governments aren't supposed to censor opinions - freedom of speech - but commercial bloggers interested in maintaining an enjoyable blog are well within their rights to do so (like orderofsplendor does). Seems we have one or a few 'anonymous' commenters who are particular MM haters. This same fiasco went on a few posts ago. It eventually devolved into an American-bashing exercise. Anyone who calls MM 'manly, massive and ugly' just makes me want to see what they look like themselves; I know their personalities are certainly ugly. From an artist's or a reconstructive surgeon's perspective, her facial structure is very nearly (and naturally, as far as I can tell) perfect. There's no accounting for taste and everyone's entitled to an opinion, but as my mother says, when couth and courtesy are missing, "consider the source." - Beth
FASCISM IS BACK
Beth, you need to calm down, don't stress yourself
To Beth: If you want to hear only good comments about MM I suggest you go to the Norway Royal family website. That way you will probably read that her facial structure is perfect (laugh) and she is a perfect size (laugh) and she is soooo elegant and stylish (double laugh), all the comments you want to hear, and more....
People love to toss around the phrases "freedom of speech" and "fascism", but rarely understand what those terms really mean.
Wow, some comments are quite harsh but I don't think comment sections on blogs should be disabled. It is nice to read what others think. I just wish we were all a bit kinder.
Duchess Catherine has often been underweight, so I consider her to be only a potentially attractive woman. (It is widely known that underweight women suffer more frequently from hyperemesis gravidarum, and many have commented on her low weight over the years.) Princess MM has exquisite features. She has one of the best facial bone structures of any royal and of most of any other public figure. She has a wide forehead and cheekebones and her teeth are full and well-spaced. A healthy beautiful woman. (who could probably stand to lose about 15 pounds and stop bleaching her hair). Unfortunately the traditional outfits are not slimming. She is probably wearing underskirts as well as the satin skirt and enormous apron. They have always seemed to me to be a very loving family, happy holidays to them
Ha,ha,ha,ha !!!! Hilarious!!!! Very scientific!!! ;)
Here we go again, whenever a girl has a FANTASTIC figure, not skinny, not slim, but a sporty slender figure, she is either painfully thin, underweight, anorexic,or suffer from some weird illness etc. Why? Because they are just envious. Katherine has an amazing figure, she obviously take care of herself, which bis nothing wrong, and every single dress that she wears looks good on her., even the most conservative and horrible ones. However, a chubby woman, with no style whatsoever, is a healthy , perfect bone structure (who do you want to fool?) Sorry i respect people's opinions, but please, this is nonsense!
Respecting someone's opinion then you call it nonsense? Duchess Catherine does not have a great figure, she is usually underweight and slouches. And yes, MM has superior bone structure among the royal ladies, regardless of her weight and style.
I think people should be able to express their opinions, but in some cases the way they express them comes as rude or aggressive. Instead of calling Mette-Marit fat or massive, which are very disrespectful adjectives you could say she is large or big, which are widely accepted. Some of you think she is horrible, others think she is beautiful, this is fine, we don't need to agree on that, it depends on our taste on female beauty, however there is no need to be rude or insulting. Also this is just a blog in which people comment on a public personality style or beauty (that is the whole point), don't take it so personal.
Mette Marit has aged well and will continue to. As the poster above stated, she has wonderful bone structure and will be lovely when she is 80. Not all princesses will age as well. As for her weight, she has given birth to 3 children; most women I know who have given birth don't have tiny figures any more. Her husband appears to find her beautiful as do her children. That matters far more than some judgemental poster on a blog.
Mary of Denmark has four children and she is slim, she looks after her figure and her image, as it should be when you are representing your country.
Mary is looking very worn lately. I have always wondered how difficult it must be to be married to Frederick. Also Mary is working probably too hard and could use some rest and time with her family. Otherwise she will not age well. She does seem to be fit, however, good for her.
I think Mary is ageing fantastically well. She is getting a few lines here and there, but she is 42. Don't know what do you mean by how difficult it must be to be married to Frederick, they seem pretty happy together.My point was that having 4 children is not an excuse to let yourself go and become fat. Even more when you are representing your country. To me that show laziness and lack of self esteem.
To me she looks awful, don't know about her bone structure, but her face is just ugly
Newsflash to all of those expressing the opinions that Mette-Marit is unattractive, etc. - she is still a Crown Princess and will one day be Queen, which is far more than any of you will ever achieve in your petty, pathetic, ugly hearted little lives.
What an embarrassment for Norway to have her as their queen. And I think anybody who achieves anything by hard work deserves more respect than a woman who has achieved to become princess by marrying a prince. A queen is not more important than a doctor, a policewoman, an actress, an architect, MM has not achieved anything really, she hasn't proved to have any inteligence or any skills other than marrying a prince, which is quite sad.,
People shouldn't get so upset with how other people feel or see Crown Princess MM as people have a right to there opinions. Just let it go.
I agree, Beth seems a bit distressed about the whole thing.
Is MM the only one who brings out the venom? I haven't noticed such ugliness with respect to any of the other royal ladies. MM was a commoner . . . makes me wonder if there's some history/personal jealousy behind the nastiness.
I agree with you, I didn't know people dislike her so much. I think the problem is that most of the royal ladies look like models, very pretty and smart, and MM looks more like any other middle age woman, plus she is not very pretty and a big heavy on weight. She hasn't done anything wrong, and shouldn't be compared to the other royal ladies.
All of the royal ladies were commoners except Princess Stephanie of Luxemburg and Queen Mathilde of Belgium.
Yes,most of the royal ladies were commoners, but most of them successful women, as a few: Mary of Denmark a very talented solicitor, Letizia of Spain a well known journalist, Maxima of the Netherlands was an economist, Charlene of Monaco an olimpic swimmer, and MM? a single mum who worked as a waitress
That's true, they all have beauty and brains. Mette-Marit has none :( ....But she will be queen
And Catherine, who dated William and probably could not survive one day as a waitress. Being a single mum and waitress is hard work. Many of the royal ladies would not be able to do it. They work well (or barely work) within their spheres of ease (this isn't true of all, of course, especially not HSH Princess Charlene, but CP Mary had a pretty cushy job, as did many of the royal ladies). MM may not be what many people would want as queen, she will not be my queen, but I respect her and also the Prince's happiness with her and their family.
Mary was a marketing executive, which is why she met Fredrick in a bar at the Olympics, she was at the event working. Being Princess is like becoming managing partner of one of the most glamourous firms in the world and she's very good at it, she has charisma and work ethic. But she was not a solicitor.
Actually she was an Account Director
Someone here has a strange fixation with the duchess of cambridge, mmm, a bit scary.going back to the subject, 3 of the 4 ladies mentioned above (Maxima, Mary, and Letizia) did study and passed a university degree, did work in very demanding jobs, and they all did very well. Don't say they had an easy live, they do now, but they deserve recognition for their previous professions. I have nothing against waiters, but it's a job that anybody can do.
She definitely has a past! I never knew about her waitress job, but I heard she went on a TV program to find a date, apparently she wanted to be a celebrity, and she dated a drug dealer - I think he is the father of her eldest son- well,never mind her weight and physical appearance, what about her life experiences? Shame an excellent queen as Sonja will be followed on the throne by someone like the infamous MM!
Why is that person attacking duchess Catherine?
Mette Marit is special to me, and the traditional clothing is beautiful. Her hair colour is awesome. From her wedding day until now i loved her . There are of course other royals also beautiful. Most are really stylish. The newest on the list from Sweden to be married is Sofia. She is really exquisite. Dressed in the right wedding dress she will top my list for beauty. I loved Princess Charlene on her wedding day - a true modern beauty. My favourite, Queen Rania is not just beautiful, but clever, an educated humanitarian. I love this blog, thank you. ( also hope some comments could be removed, it really has no positive purpose or reason to be here )
