  1. Yes. White or pastels are flattering colours for Mette-Marit.

  2. Out of all the women that have married CP, this lady (for me anyway !) seems to have embraced her role, with such grace and sincerity ! She's not about the glamour or exposure. She goes about her duties with with quiet composure,supporting her husband, and representing her country and the Royal Family ! She might not always get our thumbs up in the fashion stakes, but, she makes up for it, in her unyielding efforts in carving out her path to becoming, one day Queen of Norway !
    And before anyone mentions her colourful past, her past is what has made her the beautiful woman she is today !

    1. Who are we to judge? Her past is nothing compared to all the shenanigans of, let's say, Charlotte Casiraghi or the rest of the Monaco "royals" . Caroline was pregnant before both her marriages, Stephanie had two kids before she married their father, and another one whose father she never married. Albert had 2 illegitimate children. And let's not talk about the british "royals", Charles, Anne, Andrew.....

    2. Dear Lizzie: Caroline has had three marriages.

      Sometimes MM dresses well; usually she wears things I wouldn't wear, and I'm old enough to be her mother. At least she always looks comfortable in her clothes.

    3. Caroline has been married three times, but only pregnant (that we know of) before her 2nd and 3rd marriages.

  3. I like her simple style, this is Mette-Marit!
