    1. She wears a classic Sami costume and it is incredible to see her in this outfit. The Sami is an exposed minority group and it is a very good acknowledge that the Crown Princess chooses to wear these clothes.

  8. She looks perfect in those colorful clothes which her dark eyes and hair complement. The Sami or Lapp reindeer-herding culture is nomadic across Norway, Sweden and Finland. Those bright colors remind me of the clothing worn when the Danish Crown Prince family visited Greenland a couple of years ago. It is nice to see emphasis on life in the north (says this Scandinavian Minnesota Old Lady).
